Diana Ross, BBC Studios, London, 1965


I was at the BBC Studios to shoot some pictures during the taping of the weekly TV show Top of the Pops and had popped up to the rooftop bar during a break. Diana was sitting at a table talking to a reporter from the Melody Maker and I asked her if it was okay to take a few pictures of her while she was being interviewed. She smiled and said that it would be fine. After she left, the reporter suggested that I send some pictures to the Melody Maker, which I did never thinking that they would be used. The following Wednesday I saw the paper at my local newsstand and there was my photo on the front page along with my name credited. Wow! A few days later, I got a call from Bob Houston, Melody Maker’s assistant editor, offering me a job as chief freelance photographer, which I gladly accepted; thanks to Lady Diana Ross! — Barrie Wentzell30x40 size is archival digital only.This authentic Diana Ross print is signed by Barrie Wentzell.
