Elvis, Sidney Poitier, Muhammad Ali, Serge Gainsbourg...

But my favourite "amateur" famous photographer (just because his 3D rigs are so "out there" compared to many) is Dr Brian May.

Denis Healey was a keen photographer (for the youngsters, he was UK Chancellor of the Exchequer under Harold Wilson in the 1960's). There is a famous, classic, photo of Denis in a rather "stolid" stance taking a photo.

Adam Woodyatt of Eastenders fame is a very gifted photographer, I recall reading he's quite well acknowledged in the RPS.
