and War: the art
of the photojournalist
“It’s good to catch the Royals when they are most human, when the barrier is down. This is when we get our best pictures. The challenge of shooting the Royal Family is to make them look as real and as like the rest of us as possible. You have to treat your subjects as normal people – whether it is the Prime Minister or the Queen. Of course, the Queen would smile if her horse wins, as would any owner.”
“There are split moments when everything falls into place. Like the portrait of Kate Middleton in Australia where everything fell into place – the light, the facial expression, the level of relaxation. It’s almost as if the picture was taken in her back garden, not on an official Royal job. It’s moments like this that make it worthwhile to travel to the other side of the world to do a job.”
