Our guest today is a pap – in fact he’s one of the most qualified and highest paid shooters in the business. He’s not only captured the world’s most famous stars in some of their most infamous moments – but his family also owns one of the biggest agencies (WENN) which sell the pics on to magazines and news networks across the world. No-one knows the paparazzi business OR the stars themselves like Owen Beiny.
He’ll hand out $10,000 every morning to LA’s maître d’s and parking valets for celeb sighting tips. Then thanks to his omnipresent cameras and beating LA traffic by travelling in the ‘pap lane’ (the other side of the road), Owen and his team are on the scene to capture celebs on camera – documenting their triumphs and tragedies, their breakups and meltdowns, and just about everything in between.
In this show, Owen chats to Caroline Feraday and Claire Bullivant about being thrown in jail after chasing Britney Spears, making Jennifer Anniston a promise, defending some of his more controversial shots and helping Madonna keep certain pics out of the public domain.

How does a kid from Hartlepool end up in America, flying the world’s most expensive fighter jet F22 stealth aircraft? Daniel Robinson did exactly that – he was the first British pilot qualified to fly the supersonic jet which pilots refer to as ‘almost like God.’ Putting it simply… he went to Top Gun and being the only Brit – of course his call sign was Bond.
After the military he earned his MBA and moved to New York City to work in private wealth management. But a family tragedy called for our high-flyer to return to England and rescue his family business from bankruptcy. He turned the company around and became the UK’s SME businessman of the year in the process.
Dan Robinson’s story is an inspirational example of following your dreams and achieving greatness – even when it doesn’t all go to plan. We feel the need, the need for speed with pilot, businessman and Jiu-Jitsu extraordinaire – the very eloquent, handsome and new Brit actor in the Wood, Dan Robinson.
