From late king of pop Michael Jackson to pint-sized songstress Kylie Minogue - Suffolk celebrity snapper Dave Hogan has photographed them all.
And now members of the public will be able to get their hands on some of his greatest work when it goes under the hammer later this month.
The signed images once hung in the rooms of Shadingfied Hall, near Southwold, which Mr Hogan bought for �1.2m in 2007.
But the former Sun newspaper snapper is now moving out of the Grade II listed building, where Prime Minister Gordon Brown spent his summer holidays last year.

As a result he is also selling some of its furniture, including the PM's bedside table and a four poster bed in which he would have slept.
Mr Hogan, who rented out the Georgian hall for �4,500 a week, said: 'I don't want to get rid of the prints, or the furniture, but the truth is we're moving to a smaller place nearby and I just don't have the room.'

Other photos going under the hammer include the iconic shot of Madonna kissing Britney Spears and snaps of footballer David Beckham, pop star David Bowie and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger.
The sale is happening at Durrants auction rooms in The Old School House, Peddars Lane, Beccles, next Friday, August 14.
General manager Miles Lamdin said: 'It is a very interesting collection and to be honest has come a bit out of the blue because it's not the normal run of the mill stuff we usually sell. They are all very desirable.
'The photographs have been on display for a couple of weeks and we have had a very encouraging response - people find them very interesting.
'I have no idea how much they will go for - they are absolutely stunning and beautifully presented in lovely frames. With a reserve price between �30 and �60, there will be some bargains to be had.
'It might be pop memorabilia specialists, fans or people buying them as presents for someone else. I don't know. The pictures of Michael Jackson, including one of Jacko at Wimbledon with Elizabeth Taylor, are amazing.'
The photos are on display all week at Durrants in Beccles.
