    This and the following lot were used by Dennis Constantine, FIIP. Dennis Constantine was for many years thought of as the portrait photographers' photographer. He had studios in Mayfair and Birmingham and held Royal Warrants of appointment to both HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. He established an unequalled reputation in Asia where he photographed many of the continent's leading business and political figures; one of his portraits of Queen Sirikit of Thailand fetched a world record sum at auction. He also set-up a pioneering laboratory in the Midlands producing large canvas-mounted colour portraits; the first of their kind outside the U.S.A. He was honoured by the British Institute of Photography and by the Professional Photographers of America, was a founder member of Europhot; (the organisation for professional photographers in Europe) and lectured widely."
