Chris Eubank + One Night Stand #6 challenge by jo13

Chris Eubank + One Night Stand #6 challenge

Thought I'd try the One Night Stand B&W challenge today and took off into town with my macro lens of all things!, anyway literally bumped into Chris Eubank as he came around the corner and I couldn't resist asking if I could take a shot.
Chris Eubank, is a British retired boxer who held world titles at middleweight and super middleweight. He was a world champion for over five years, undefeated in his first ten years as a professional, and remained undefeated at middleweight.
Best viewed on black.
excellent what was he like

@gavinburree Incredibly nice and obliging, gave me a kiss and a hug and off I trotted!
December 2nd, 2013  
Wow, I would have been star struck. This is an excellent portrait, are you going to send it to him? Think he will be very proud of this shot, he is quote admiring of himself at the best of times! Fabulous and. Fav
December 2nd, 2013

@gavinburree As usual I didn't have the right lens with me and could only do a head and shoulder shot, which is a shame as his outfit was eccentric to say the least.
December 2nd, 2013  
WOW! What luck. My luck would have been no camera. Great portrait, you have captured him perfectly. He is a snappy dresser and a great personality. I agree with Gavin, something very likable about him and how kind to let you take his photo!

Jo
@silverlight @lucypics He offered to take me out for a drink, but I think he was just being polite!!
December 2nd, 2013  
Oh shit she is good at portraits without the right lens. I give up and will stick to my knockers! Did he have his walking stick with him?
December 2nd, 2013  
Jo
@padlock I don't think he did, can't wait to get my hands on your wide angle!!
December 2nd, 2013  
@jo13 shame look forward to seeing toyon Saturday. I will bow in the presence of such an accomplished photographer !!

Excellent portrait Jo, and with your macro ! You'll find it great for many other shots, as you found out ! He sounds really nice :)
December 2nd, 2013  
@jo13 really?? Not that I'm surprised a babe like you! You should have accepted
December 2nd, 2013  
great job with this portrait. You definitely need to get a copy to him! And you definitely should have taken him up on his offer for a drink. Imagine the stories!
December 2nd, 2013  
Fabulous! Oh, Jo, you came out swinging on ONS6 girl! LOVE IT. @padlock I know right? JO can do ANYTHING!
December 2nd, 2013  
lucky for you! amazing portrait of him!
December 2nd, 2013  
Good for you! He used to be a regular sight around Brighton, I believe. Nice shot too.
December 2nd, 2013  
Cool!! I'm guessing he was amenable to being recognised. I saw Dr Pixie from Embarrassing Bodies yesterday - didn't bother asking her ;0)
December 2nd, 2013  
Great portrait, super b&w. Fav!
December 2nd, 2013  
That's some cool luck you had running into a sports star. Wonderful portrait, Jo!! Fav!
December 2nd, 2013  
Wow what luck Jo!! Great portrait - that macro lens is good for things other than macro!! Fav!!
December 2nd, 2013  
Brilliant Jo!! I thought, oh Jo knows someone who looks just like Chris Eubank, then OMG, that IS Chris Eubank!! Well done you for asking too! Fab portrait too - such a dapper guy - he would be delighted! Good luck with the challenge! : ) fav
December 2nd, 2013  
This is an excellent portrait Jo...as always the immaculate dapper dresser he always was...quite a character & you have done him full justice!
December 2nd, 2013

December 2nd, 2013  
Stunning portrait Jo
December 2nd, 2013  
Wow, a thrilling encounter and an awesome portrait. I hope you are sending him a signed copy ;)

And very dapper he looks, as always. Nice shot - looks great in black and white
December 2nd, 2013  
Awesome portrait; a fortuitous encounter. Well shot. :)

December 2nd, 2013  
Fabulous shot Jo - Fav. Hasn't he got a nice face!
December 2nd, 2013

December 2nd, 2013  
Wonderful shot
December 2nd, 2013

December 2nd, 2013  
Lee
Wonderful portrait.
December 2nd, 2013  
Wow
December 2nd, 2013  
Just bumped into, as you do! Well done for knowing who this handsome chap is! Super portrait Jo. The 100mm Macro is a brilliant portrait lens isn't it.
December 2nd, 2013  
Wow !! Super photo of a fellow who is not shy to pose !! --and hasn't he got super skin !! Wonderful Jo --A fav !
December 2nd, 2013  
well done, fine shot
December 2nd, 2013  
Wow, this is a wonderful portrait, especially taken on the hoof. It's really spooky, but I actually bumped into Chris Eubank nearly a year ago to the day at a lunch at the Grand Hotel in Brighton. We are going to the same lunch this Weds. I wasn't bright enough to think about asking him for a photo though! He really is a snappy dresser, isn't he?
December 2nd, 2013  
Jo
@suesmith Yes, such a shame I didn't get the full ensemble, it was quite something!
December 2nd, 2013  
What a GORGEOUS portrait! I had no idea who this man was, but the photo is just beautiful Well done.
December 2nd, 2013  
gorgeous portrait of Chris. I am sure he would love it!
December 2nd, 2013  
Have not heard of the man...but he's good looking.
December 2nd, 2013  
Great portrait, what a stroke of luck.
December 2nd, 2013  
A fantastic portrait Jo. Fav
December 2nd, 2013  
Nice portrait and fun adventure!
December 3rd, 2013  
You've captured his good looks, his great style, and a disarming smile, all in a beautiful portrait. Well done!
December 3rd, 2013  
Terrific portrait! What a handsome guy! :)
December 3rd, 2013  
Wow, well done on this portrait for such little notice! Great job!
December 3rd, 2013  
A fantastic portrait, candid. A fav.
December 3rd, 2013  
This is such a wonderful portrait.
December 3rd, 2013  
Fab capture, you should be so proud of this :-D fav! see you Saturday
December 3rd, 2013  
Oh wow! Awesome capture, Jo!
December 3rd, 2013  
Nice one - I remember him being quite a dandy. This is a great portrait - sure he'd love it!
December 3rd, 2013  
Jo
@pixiemac Oh excellent news, I shall look forward to meeting you.
December 3rd, 2013  
Jo
@taz_o Are you coming on Saturday?
December 3rd, 2013  
@jo13 hope to, but I'll be late (and a bit out of it!) cos I've got a blood donor appointment at 9.50
December 3rd, 2013  
fabulous portrait, I admire you equally for this fantastic shot as well as having the guts to approach him! though I am so useless at recognising famous people that I woukd have never noticed anyway. Victoria Beckham was in the same kids club as us a few weeks back and my husband has to point her out to me, tnisnis how useless I am!!
December 3rd, 2013  
Jo
@taz_o Gosh good for you, you'll need a hot cup of tea and a sit down after that. Where is your appointment? If you like you can give me your mobile, via email and il let you know where we are if we have to move off?
December 3rd, 2013  
Jo
@roseolivia How funny, not sure I would have approached her myself, she has a rather unwelcoming look about her!
December 3rd, 2013  
@jo13 That would be great - I've got padlock's number but would be good to have 2 in case something goes wrong as I don't think I'll be there before 11.30. My email is taz_o54@yahoo.co.uk - could you mail me and I'll send you my number. Thx!
December 3rd, 2013  
this is a a great portrait!
December 3rd, 2013  
A really great portrait - well done for remaining cool and calm enough to get this excellent shot!
December 3rd, 2013  
Jo
@tishpics Thank you, if I had had time to think about it I probably wouldn't have done it, especially as half of Knightsbridge where watching!
December 3rd, 2013  
oh wow - excellent luck & guts - did you explain about the project - i like his style this guy & you've captured it so well
December 3rd, 2013  
Fantastic portrait! Well done for getting this shot!
December 3rd, 2013  
Wow! And you got it right too! It's gorgeous. I bet he'd love a copy of that photo.
December 3rd, 2013  
What a fabulous portrait! Well done for being in the right place at the right time!
December 3rd, 2013  
Excellent portrait. It's so nice when someone famous "shows up".
December 4th, 2013  
what a beautiful portrait!!
December 4th, 2013  
Fabulous portrait.

Ian
Great shot of a British icon. Looks like you charmed him as you caught a nice expression there.
December 6th, 2013  
Great shot and how smart are those threads! Very dapper Gent.
December 7th, 2013  
Looks like a very cool dude. Brave of you to ask a celeb for a street portrait shot. Even braver to "bump" into a former boxer. Very neat portrait.
December 9th, 2013  
Wow! Timing really is everything. What a capture. fav
December 16th, 2013  
I recognised him from your monthly view. What a nice encounter.
