Bob Willoughby

( 1927 - 2009 )

Bob Willoughby was born in Los Angeles, California. His career began as an assistant to photographers Wallace Seawell and Paul Hesse. Willoughby contributed photographs to Harper’s Bazaar, Life, Look, the New York Times and Vogue. He had more than 125 motion picture assignments, including The Man with the Golden Arm, Raintree County, My Fair Lady, The Graduate, The Lion in Winter and Rosemary’s Baby. In 1964, he devised brackets to attach a 35mm camera to a motion picture camera, enabling him to shoot where other still photographers could not, and to achieve stills identical to the motion picture footage.
