Royal photographer John Swannell believes that the Princess of Wales is depriving talented young people of their chance to become famous.
The 40-year-old Princess of Wales “shattered the hopes of a generation of photographers” by taking her own photographs of the royal children, rather than letting someone else “make a name for themselves”. This statement was made by royal photographer John Swannell, according to the Daily Mail.
As you know, Prince William's wife has long been fond of photography and has always taken official portraits not only of all her children on their birthdays, but even photographed the queen consort for covers of a popular magazine.
“All the work I got photographing the royal family really lifted my career. Now someone like me just won't get a chance. These chances should be given to young English photographers,” Swannell emphasized.
He added that in some ways Katherine is right about doing it herself:
“She's not a very good photographer, but she just shoots, and it's easier with children if you know them.”
At one time, Prince William's wife wrote a diploma in children's photography with a degree in Art History from the University of St. Andrews. She became the first member of the royal family to take official photos of a royal baby back in 2015, when she posted pictures of newborn Charlotte in the arms of Prince George. Then there were more photos of Kate and William's children.
Royal expert Camilla Tomini said earlier that the then Duchess of Cambridge “took responsibility for the public image of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.” This model is “unique” for the couple and helps the family maintain a level of privacy for their three children.
“The paparazzi market is no more because the Duchess publishes her family photos, and they are much more valuable to the press than images taken with a telephoto lens,” she said.
