Lord Snowdon offers portraits for 5000 pounds
The ''selected customers''
Even though he remains close to his former sister-in-law, the Queen, Lord Snowdon would appear not to be immune to the effects of the global credit crunch.

Mandrake hears that the distinguished photographer is offering his services to hoi polloi for 5,000 a time.

It is all done very discreetly through a St James's art gallery run by Lord Archer's old pal Chris Beetles which has lately sent out a card advertising the service to 'selected customers'.

The card is illustrated by a portrait by Snowdon of the late Princess Margaret, his former wife.

'We were put in touch by Lord Snowdon's old friend, the photographer Terry O'Neill,' says Giles Huxley-Parlour at the gallery.

'About 20 people have requested his services so far and he has photographed them at his studio in Kensington.

'It's good value: he provides each with six prints of tremendous quality. I'm only surprised he hasn't done it before.'

Unfortunately, Lord Snowdon, 78, is presently out of action.

He is holed up at the King Edward VII Hospital, after breaking a leg at his home in west London.
