Ok many of us(most) are just your run about run of the mil people into playing about with our photo making machines, but i wonder who on here is actually a famous person we would know - Musician who has been on the media - Tv Radio etc, an Actor from screen - films - tv etc, or anyone who is known through fame.
Quite a few famous people i have heard about are into photography - just "Are you on here"???


P.


Finally got it right I think - Nikon D7500, Nikon 300 F4 PF, Nikon 1.4 X mk3 TC

I'm not famous, but I would imagine that if there was someone famous on here I doubt that they would announce who they were for privacy reasons.

I used to be on speaking terms with a famous person who was quite an accomplished photographer before she became so well known for her writing. Does the fact that Eudora knew the names of my dogs that I used to walk in her neighborhood make me famous enough that I can claim I am a famous person who also takes photographs. :lol:

My other claim to fame along the lines of a "famous person who also takes pictures" is related to Bernie Ebbers (external link) I sold him a disposable camera one day at one of my former jobs. I guess if I am going to claim fame because of that it would make me more of an "infamous person into taking pictures" than it would make me famous.

Some years ago, I attained sudden but brief fame by winning an annual writing contest that gets lots of publicity. I was interviewed by phone for five minutes on BBC radio. My fame lasted about three days. The media are so fickle!

For the record, I'm not famous; I even have to keep introducing myself to my kids!
