Alan Colella has a fascinating life! He cuts hair by day and snaps celebrity photos at night! Alan has been taking celebrity shots for over 30 years and most recently released a photo book titled Alan Colella’s Sexy Women: A Photo collection of Hollywood’s Most Desirable Divas.
The 50-page book includes photos of Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Ladd, Tanya Roberts, Jaclyn Smith, Lynda Carter, Pamela Anderson, Barbi Benton, Catherine Bach, Whitney Houston, Natalie Wood, Barbara Eden, and Elizabeth Taylor, just to name a few.
Alan has tons of Hollywood stories. Most recently he was taking shots of Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer from TNT's Franklin & Bash. He went up to them and asked if he could take their photo together. They agreed. As he was taking his shots, paparazzi suddenly came running over to get the same photo.
He fondly remembers being on location with Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith on the set of Charlie’s Angels. His wife even brought homemade cookies to the heavenly creatures. He laughs a bit when telling stories about giving gifts to Farrah & Jaclyn. He would bring Farrah & Jaclyn gifts and they both would compete with each other who had the better gift.
The cover image of his book featuring Tanya Roberts was shot at the Japanese garden in Los Angeles where she was appearing to promote her film “Sheena”. If you look closely, as Roberts is feeding the fish, you can also see why she was Queen of the Jungle! The book also features some nudity.
One thing Alan gets a kick out of is asking celebrities to take a picture with their TV or movie themed lunchboxes! He recently asked Jaclyn Smith to take a picture with the Charlie’s Angels lunchbox which she did as she was hopping in her car to leave a restaurant. Then she rolled down the window and handed Alan his lunchbox back.
Although Natalie Wood was one of the Alan’s most favorite people to photograph, Alan stated, “Farrah was my #1 favorite!”
