Access is amazing – the amount of time you are given with someone. When people relax in front of you then all kinds of magic can happen. If you have a day with Brad Pitt then potentially you can take a great photo, whereas if he walks past you in the street and you grab a picture with your phone, it is not going to happen. - Michael Hoppen

Photography is so young, we are still at the cavepainting stage. Maybe in another 500 years we'll reach photography's Renaissance. - Michael Hoppen
