‘Hi Will, I caught up with Adam Butler in koh Lanta, Thailand in April 2. Adam ex PA/ AP photographer has now taken up residents on this beautiful island near Phuket. To earn a bit of beer money, Adam now takes wedding photos assisted by his wife.”
Adam and ‘assistant’ in action far left
He had bruised his heal badly and was on crutches, but it didn’t stop him taking pictures.
Adam knows everyone on the island and everyone knows Adam. He said he would show me round the island, which he did, I think it was every bar!!
Taking wedding photos as the sun goes down over the beach helped by his wife. And hobbling around on his crutch.
It was great catching up with an old colleague.
