Pamela Anderson.....shot with a ring flash, as per her request.

Yup, she asked for the ring flash. Late the night before the shoot the producer called me and said "do I have a ring flash"? Nope! I used to, but not now. Long story short.....I hired one early the next day and made the shoot with minutes to spare. Artists sometimes will request/demand particular lighting. Barbra Streisand famously brought her lighting cameraman when she was a guest on a chat show here in the UK.  Pamela had also asked the video guys to light her with a ring light around the lens of the video camera.
