According to a survey conducted by the insurance company Photoguard (which specialises in insurance for photographers, unsurprisingly, and insurance for musicians, golfers, and cyclists, slightly more surprisingly), the most desired portrait subject of the 600 amateur and professional photographers whom they asked, is …drumroll please…
HM The Queen.
Yep. The Queen. Not Cheryl Cole (who seems to be everywhere at the moment) or Kate Moss. They came seventh and ninth respectively.
Perhaps more interestingly, it was Sir David Attenborough who came second, followed by Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, and Lady Gaga.
Who’d be top of your subject wish-list?
