I was the still photographer for the Oprah Winfrey Show from it’s beginning in September of 1986, till 1991. I spent many a day in her studio, and went on location regularly. This photo of Oprah and Elizabeth Taylor was taken in Los Angeles after a taping at the Hotel Bel-Air. Liz’s publicist told me beforehand that I could only shoot 10 shots. I thought she was kidding, but she stood next to me and counted them off- and put her hand over the lens when I shot the 10th shot!
