David Bailey

So I was sitting in the office and they said "could you pop up to the RPS and photograph David Bailey".
When I arrived he was in the middle of a TV interview and I started to photograph him through a small widow in the door.
He heard the camera click and turned to give me this look, Amanda Neville, now the Head of Museum at the National Museum of Photography in Bradford who was organising the exhibition said "He's seen you" and then left at speed, leaving me to face the great man.
He couldn't have been more helpful despite his reputation, but the first picture was best.
