From these humble beginnings he went on to become one of the highest paid and sort after photographers on Fleet Street, and now has a reputation as one of the greatest British photographers of the 20th century. His photographs cover historic rock albums, Hollywood movie posters and high end magazines and also hang in international art galleries and renowned private collections.
