Lord Lichfield dies

The renowned royal photographer Lord Lichfield has died at the age of 66. Patrick Lichfield who was regarded as one of the UK's top photographers held a fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society amongst other special photographic achievements.

He captured many 'iconic' images during his life and will be remembered by many for the Photographs from the wedding of Charles and Diana in 1981. Prince Charles, was in fact his cousin.

Photography draws people together and the work of Lord Lichfield was admired by many but especially understood by photographers. Although his style of photography is as popular as ever, His uniqueness has been lost.

Lord Lichfield fell ill a few days ago whilst staying with friends in Oxford. My sympathies go especially to his family at this time.
