Harry Potter actor Hugh Mitchell may be more familiar to fans as the adorable muggle-born Gryffindor photographer, Colin Creevey, primarily featuring in the spectacular Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Unfortunately, Mitchell's character was sort-of replaced and recast in the remaining movies, and (spoiler alert) faced a melancholic death in the books, but that hasn't stopped the actor achieving fame and success as a professional photographer – using a suitably old school Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the original 6D.
