*I photographed Heath Ledger back in the summer of 2002 when I was a freelancer for the NY Daily News. He was really cool and personable. I remember joking with him about my Leica and he even asked to handle it. Boy, you just never know...
On Friday, January 25, 2008, the NY Daily News ran the full length image on page 3 of Mr. Ledger.

  1. That are some good, chill pics...better then those typical posed ones. These pics concentrate on the person, not the setting and that's good! They don't make the celeb a 'thing'.

    And indeed, it's a shame he died, he seemed a very great guy.
