#67: The life of a celebrity photographer with Andy Gotts
Welcome to episode 67 of Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, the podcast for people photographers. Hosted by two leading UK portrait photographers, Vicki Knights & Eddie Judd.
This week we have some light relief for you, something we all need in these uncertain times.
We’re talking to UK celebrity photographer Andy Gotts. Andy is celebrating his 30th year of an incredible career. He has been widely published internationally, received an MBE from the queen for his services to photography and charity and has photographed a mind-blowing amount of A-list celebrities including Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Kate Moss, Al Pacino, Kate Winslet, Robin Williams, Elton John, Dolly Parton, George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Anthony Hopkins and so many more.
He tells us some incredible stories from his 30 years of photographing celebrities and also offers brilliant advice for those looking to get into this field of work.
Thank you so much Andy for your time, we loved talking to you.
