Jimi Blue Smoke, 1967, Masons Yard Studio, London

This is another shot from my first session with Jimi at my Mason’s Yard studio in 1967 and is part of the famous Smoking series. This particular version was originally produced as a blue toned print for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine back in the 90s and was selected by them as one of the greatest rock portraits in their September 2004 50th Anniversary Of Rock issue!

Marianne Pub, 1964, The Salisbury Pub, London

I took this portrait of Marianne in a pub called the Salisbury Arms in St. Martins Lane in central London at the end of 1964 soon after we met. Decca records rejected this particular shot because they objected to the guy’s reflected in the mirror and chose a less interesting shot for the cover of Come My Way, Marianne’s first album.

Eurythmics ‘Revenge’, 1986, Paris

This is from my last shoot with Eurythmics.

I was asked to go to Paris to shoot a session that I thought was going to be the cover image for their new album. When I got there Dave told me that he was going to have a painting made from my portrait for the cover. I never really understood why as my photograph was so much better than the painting!
