The collecting/buying/selling of autographed photos. Wanting to work with actors/models musos in the field.
I am a Canadian born Aussie who has been living a great life in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney since age thirteen.
I am a serious collector covering autographs, books, old movies and various other collectibles. I have been dabbling in various fields from antique silver and porcelain, to War medals, coins and banknotes since childhood, but have made my home collecting and dealing in autographed items, mainly 10x8 photos relating to film and TV 1930 to the present with a mix of models and musos and the odd sports person.
I have also enjoyed playing a lot of tournament bridge over the years and really enjoy playing good tough matches especially playing teams style bridge.
Who I'd like to meet:
I like meeting all sorts of people and have lots of great friends of all ages and from all countries, however please note that I am mainly here to "network" with actors, models, bands and singers for photograph signings and interviews. It doesn't matter if you are a young actor, singer or model or a well established star, I am interested in discussing photo signings. I am after glamour, bikini, band shots, tastefully topless, artful and humorous shots, sci fi and cult style photos from movies.
Simply email me if you are interested in working with me. I have the facilities to have photos professionally made on high quality Fuji paper and I can supply you with photos for your own use too. Fees etc will vary from person to person and are always negotiable. If you receive an email from me about doing a signing and are not interested then simply say no or delete my email. I rarely approach a person twice. I also seeking interviews for a book I am working on, and to put on my websites, with more established models and actors and Musos. This usually involves a 10 question Q&A and I can link your official and/or MySpace sites to give you added exposure on the Net. The interviews are very much feel good and humour based upon your experiences while working and meeting fans. You can read numerous interviews on my website to get a feel for what I try to create.
And remember that many of the non-reputable dealers on sites like eBay sell fakes and forgeries ripping off both you and your fans. They are also hurting the dealers who do the right thing.
I want to provide my clients with the real deal and at a price they can afford. And do not hesitate to email me questions or ask for assistance. Check out my website: www.dpriol.com

Autograph collecting and dealing, writing short stories and doing interviews with interesting celebrities, reading, writing poetry, playing tournament and club bridge, film and TV, music and my life in general... having fun with people and laughing whenever possible and always seeing what is over the next midnight...and being so in love with my lady that it hurts when she is not in my arms.....
1930-1955 Film Noir and Screwball Comedy to Western European Cinema, Modern Crime, Period pieces and anything that takes my fancy or mood.
Crime & Thrillers, Biographies, Hollywood Legends... Emma Goldman's "My Life" is the type of book which haunts the mind and spirit. Ayn Rand to Bruce Dawe, WH Auden to Ogden Nash...
The ones who are rarely famous... The many amazing diggers from WWI & WWII, Korea & Vietnam whom I met as a teenager and the hours I spent hearing their stories and experiences (and hearing how the other bloke was always the hero)... The accidentally heroic... Those who temper toughness with compassion... Those who laugh at adversity and those who dare to be whatever they want to be.... without destroying others in the process....people who achieve things for other people because they feel the driving need, and have the knack of achieving great things without fuss or favour...
