I had the distinctive honor of meeting Teddy Blackett of B. Free Paparazzi last summer. Teddy was immediately an influential young man. Standing some odd inches over 6 feet tall with a sexy bald head and a warm personality, I was amazed.

Teddy started B. Free Paparazzi originally as a movie group that would venture to local theaters as a group and even take a group photo once the movie let out. Now, his brand has grown significantly over the last year. You can find Teddy just about at any event snapping candid in color and in black and white with his Nikon DSLR. The photos are ready and posted on his website in less than 24 hours. Hell, it's the same night 9 times out of 10!

The first event I attended that Teddy coordinated was Simple Pleasures. This event was a break-the-ice/wine tasting event at the new upscale venue called The Inspot Dessert Bar and Lounge. A Stone Hill Winery Representative came out with delicious samples while music flowed and cups overflowed. It was one heck of a night. Most definitely a night to remember for sure!

Lately, Teddy has so busy with snapping events and building his brand. He has also been nominated to ALIVE Magazine's Sexy and Successful search for the most desirable movers and shakers in the St. Louis area. The Sexy and Successful candidate is young and professional with the total package of being sexy, savvy, and successful. And clearly Teddy is just that! So if you are reading this article, please take the time out to vote for Teddy at I have voted for him since I got wind of this and I am encouraging you to do the same!

I had the honor of requesting an eInterview May 30, 2009 to virtually catch up with Teddy and to see how things are going! Here's how the eInterview went!:


How did you come up with the name,logo and concept for B Free Paparazzi?

My name is Teddy Blackett, so I've always been Teddy B, always been a free spirit and after a difficult relationship I realized the importance of keeping that spirit alive. As far as the paparazzi I've always had a nack for taking candid photos that told a story. My friends started calling me the paparazzi cuz I'd always be the guy taking pictures when no one expected it.

How long have you been doing event photography?

My first class was in 1993. Then in college in 2001, bought my 1st DSLR (digital single lens reflex)in August of 2008.

Everyone that knows you knows that you also host opening movie nights at local movie theaters. How do you find the time for it all?

My friends!!!! Without there support I wouldn't be able to do any of it. Technology also helps, emails, credit cards, telephone transactions, and and the Internet make time management more manageable, LOL!
