People that some might think it somewhat unlikely that I've photographed, but I was invited/employed to do so: from upper left, Samuel L. Jackson, Clint Eastwood and Robert Rodriguez amongst other notables, Prince, REO Speedwagon, Wire, Girlschool.

Random stories behind the photos: the mighty Samuel L. Jackson seen at a charity benefit organized by his fellow actor Danny Glover: Clint Eastwood and others, (images owned by Billboard magazine/The Hollywood Reporter, fair usage insertion) my photographs of their Film & TV Music Conference throughout the page shown; that's a pistol-shaped microphone in Prince's hand. Difficult shoot: media limited to 1 and 1/2 songs, the first of which found Prince wholly masked throughout, with unidentified goons rushing all press photographers off the premises entirely afterwards, unusual treatment. I made my "escorts" work for it, whining that I had to go the loo, and staying in there for fifteen minutes, relaxing, re-doing my makeup, futzing with my camera equipment; REO Speedwagon looking very relaxed in their manager's lovely, verdant back yard; lastly, Wire and Girlschool looking, according to the record company personnel way too relaxed, the excuse given for not wanting me to shoot their parties again.
