How does The Hollywood Fix find celebrities?
One thing Dixie asked Fletcher was something he admitted he had been “asked a lot”: how is he able to find and hunt down celebrities? “By seeing the same people over and over again and being entwined in society, you get a sense of where they like to hang out,” he said. He gave the example of Saddle Ranch, a popular LA restaurant frequented by TikTokers.
But it’s not just intuition that helps her find celebrities. He told Dixie that many fans would message him informing him of the celebrity locations and, to D’Amelio’s visible shock, admitted he had a “massive database of license plates. “on his phone to help him identify and follow celebrities.
Later in the interview, Fletcher took D’Amelio out on the road so she could see the process for herself.

As part of D’Amelio’s interview with the papparazo, we learned more about Fletcher, the founder of The Hollywood Fix. The 38-year-old told Dixie that before he soaked up celebrity culture he was a musician until the carpal tunnel prevented him from playing.
He explained how he became a paparazzi almost by accident. As a Los Angeles local, he explained that he “would meet so many different famous people.” Greene told Dixie he got his first glimpse of life as a celebrity photographer after meeting Chris Brown’s Lamborghinis in the driveway of Karrueche Tran, who lived down the street from his house.
After taking pictures of the cars on his phone, he contacted TMZ and got a payment of $ 1,000. From that point on he got a taste of life as a photographer and switched to a camera, selling many of his shots to outlets like The Daily Mail.
