Norman Wisdom was brilliant and I laughed my way through this job. He didn’t stop playing the fool and it’s a shame he is no longer with us. Hilarious!

Silly pic this but I asked Barbara if she minded and she said go ahead. I placed all the glasses on her head, showed her in the mirror, and then photographed her. She thought it was funny and praised me for my creativity.

This was proper Del Boy. David Jason was flown in in the plane behind. The three wheeler was then supposed to lead the plane in but it broke down. Panic set in and various people ran out and started pushing the car. Made funny pics. When David Jason got out of the plane he was dying for a pee so he apologised, promised he would be back, disappeared to the toilet, then true to his word came back and posed by the car. I love Only Fools and Horses so this was a great job for me.

During the filming of the first Harry Potter movie I managed to photograph nearly all the cast bar one, Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe. They wanted to keep his identity secret, so every time he stepped out to his car he was surrounded by umbrellas!
