Top five famous people you've photographed
Craig Kohlruss, Photographer
Fresno | CA | USA | Posted: 2:09 PM on 07.23.09
->> Although I've worked in fairly small markets in my 20+ years as a newspaper photojournalist and by no means am I a celebrity photographer, I have had a few opportunities to photograph famous people. So I thought it would be fun to share a list of your favorite famous people you've photographed just to see how far-reaching our lenses around the SportsShooter community go.

I'll start

Ceasar Chavez
George W. Bush
Bill Clinton
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Joe Montana

I'm sure most of you will have me beat, but should be fun anyway.

Tony Romo when he was still in college (I'll never forget that game.)

That's my top 4 athletes in no particular order. Lots more athletes, most that people would recognize would be golfers.

Waited what seemed like 5 hours for W at the local train station on a stump run. Had to leave for another assignment before his train decided to arrive.

I guess that's my list of people everyone else knows, but like Chet they may not be the most important in my own mind.

My favorites were by far Michael and Maya...two opposite ends of the spectrum. The only one I was really nervous taking pictures of was Maya Angelou.

I would have put Barry Bonds, but he's just a disappointment now.

I also got the spend some time with one of the engineers who ran the LEM simulator and helped train all the astronauts to land on the moon. He isn't famous but was an important behind-the-scenes guy who had some great stories about the Apollo program and that made it just as cool.

I know that wasn't a Top 5 but those two are still fresh in my mind.

Alan Stewart, Photographer
Corydon | IN | USA | Posted: 11:23 AM on 07.24.09
->> Just the first ones that popped out of my head ...

Bill Clinton -- I'd photographed him several times while he was in office, but last year he came to the small town of Corydon to stump for his wife. The event was probably the biggest thing(or things) to hit Corydon since Dolly Parton performed at the Harrison County Fair many moons ago ...

Mikhail Gorbechev -- Former ruler of the USSR and a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Very few people who have inhabited this planet could be called "world changers," but he's definitely one of them.

Ann and Nancy Wilson (Heart) -- They were a "bucket list" group of mine after they pretty much got this teenage boy's hormones a'raging back in the 80s.

Gene Kranz -- Former NASA flight director. Thanks to Hollywood, people probably know him best for something he never said ("Failure is not an option") during the Apollo 13 crisis. If there were more balls-to-the-wall, no-nonsense guys like Gene Kranz in this country, it'd be a lot better place. If you ever get the chance to hear this man speak, run, don't walk and DO IT. He's amazing.

Edwin Moses -- If you don't know who he is, shame on you. Go to wiki and take care of that. Today we live in an era where athletes want to take a pill or jam a needle in their arm to get better performance. Moses studied the science of running, as well as eating, to gain an edge on his opponents. He's another one to go hear speak if you ever get the chance.

Great thread, BTW.
