Lee says, “Press photographers don’t stalk people, we don’t do stake-outs, and we don’t shoot through bushes or over fences. Press photographers are part of the Hollywood publicity machine, invited by the studios and publicists to cover their events for magazines, newspapers, television shows and online use around the world. It is a privilege to be a member of the Hollywood press corps, and I am honored to be among them.”
