In Jan­uary 1985, Bob Geldof had an un­ex­pected meet­ing with the world’s best-known char­ity worker in Ethiopia…

Do any as­sign­ments stand out in your mind?

There are lots. I went out with Bob Geldof to Ethiopia. He’d made the Band Aid record and he thought that would be the end of it. So at the air­port in Ad­dis Ababa I saw Mother Teresa. I had been with Mother Teresa and Princess Diana just months be­fore. I went over and she recog­nised me. I said, “Mother Teresa, I’ve got Bob Geldof here, would you like to meet him?” She said, “Yes.” So I ran off and got Geldof, and I got a pic­ture of the two of them sit­ting in chairs just schmooz­ing each other. That’s my claim to fame, to be the only per­son to have pho­tographed two saints in one pho­to­graph!
