What was his name?

Whilst working in Scotlland recently, I got back to the hotel to watch the 1 show on BBC1 early evening. On this paticular show that I saw, they did a feature on a photographer that I found very inspiring. IIRC, he used to work in the fashion mags in the 60/70's, and has done some great portrait work with pretty major celebs.
I'm hoping that someone can remind me of his name.

Could it be Brian Duffy? There was a programme about him and his work on BBC2 (I think) a couple of months ago. Very good it was, too.

I'm not sure if it is Brian Duffy now....
There was a part in the programme, where one of the HRH princes was both subject and photographer.

I believe i saw the same programme, its covered Duffy and included footage of donoven and Bailey As the three who shaped photography, it may well be that he has photographed the princes as in 2009 he started taking pictures again of celebs.

If it was the same programme it included pictures from his later advertising work including the Benson and hedges work

Cheers all - I think I've seen 2 different programs - one was about Jeff Hubbard, and the other was about a different photographer - a portrait photographer of many celebs including Al Pacino, Alfred Hitchcock, and Marylin Monroe amoungst others. He was known for creating very un-sympathetic images of his subjects.
