Admit it, you've taken a selfie or two. But if you haven't, congratulations. In any case, no matter how hard you try, you could never match the collection of self-taken photos amassed by Vanessa Sky Ellis. Over the years, the 26-year-old New York native has taken what she estimates to be about 10,000 photos with celebrities running the gamut of entertainment. Among the stars featured in some of her favorites are Matt Damon, Tom Cruise, and Mariah Carey. But she says her favorite is Johnny Depp. "He might be 50, but he's beautiful," she says. Ellis says she has sometimes spent 12 hours in a single day searching for celebrities on the streets of New York City. Her mother, who died of a heart attack in 2007, passed the hobby on to Ellis, and it's obvious that her daughter has perfected the technique. In her spare time, Ellis works as a bartender, which keeps her father from worrying that she spends too much time taking photos. But maybe he should be concerned about her bedtime. She said, "Sometimes you have to go with just two hours sleep — but you know what, you're still doing what you love."
