Reginald Davis, 92, began his photography career with the Royal Navy during the Second World War. In 1949, he joined the Daily Express as a photojournalist who covered overnight news stories. Soon after, he began receiving assignments to shoot celebrities at red carpet events such as film premieres.
In 1959, Davis was tasked with taking photographs of Queen Elizabeth II and that's when he found his true calling. For the remainder of his career, the photographer travelled all over the world accompanying royal families on tours and state visits, and capturing some very special moments.
After nearly 50 years of taking exclusive photographs of some the world's most beloved film stars and royals, Davis penned a book, My Life Photographing Royalty And The Famous, in which he shares intimate behind-the-lens details about his glamorous and fascinating subjects.
Ahead of his book release, Davis sat down for a chat with the Daily Express and touched on his experience working so closely with the Queen and his favorite royals to photograph.
