Dear Will Carlton.
As you will see below – I was given your name by Matthew Butson of Getty images
I am having a very hard job trying to locate 3 photographers phone numbers and e-mail addressess
I worked with these 3 photographers for many years in the hairdressing industry up to and around the year  2000.

I have been searching for 3 photographers that I worked with many years ago in the UK:
Vic Singh his listing on a web sight is without any phone number-Have written many e-mail s to him but as yet nothing in return-He did live in Chelsea and was in operation and still was working some few years ago  Well known in the industry with a great track record.
Mike Balfre: For many years he was the photographer to Hairdressers Journal from around 1955 for many many years:
Mike Barnett:  From Maida Vale & North London photographer:
Is there a way of maybe tracking them down with you vast knowledge and expertise with photographers. They all took VIP personalities,
If you can possibly help me that would be sheer genius on your behalf.

If you know WHERE /or are ONE of the photographers please contact will@pressphotohistory and I will put you in touch with Harold.
