UK-based Steve Double has been working as a professional photographer for over 25 years, specialising in celebrity portraits.
During that time he has dealt with every conceivable situation and challenge, from extreme lateness to indecisive clients and from stroppy subjects to non-functioning equipment.
Once he had only 90 seconds to photograph Bill Gates. Another time, he waited six hours for the Spice Girls to arrive for a shoot. Other experiences include having been spat at by Motley Crüe, chided for lateness by Public Enemy, drinking Caiprinhas with Nick Cave, hitting up Richard Branson for a flight upgrade, and spending five days in a van with Nirvana. Proudly, he has never worn a tie.
Steve’s work is held in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London.
