If you’ve always wanted to be hounded by the paparazzi, now’s your chance. According to the Independent on Sunday, a number of companies have sprung up in the US offering members of the public the opportunity to be illicitly recorded by a man with a long-lens camera. The cost: a mere $600 a day.
One such company is LA-based Celeb-4-A-Day, which can provide “one or more suitably invasive photographers as well as a limousine and even burly bodyguards”. The pics are then printed on the cover of a fake gossip magazine.
“Some people find it difficult to have pictures taken when they are posing,” one paparazzo tells the paper. “This way, they forget what is happening and they really aren’t self-conscious any more.”
