One of the iconic photographers and film producers ("Only When I Laugh" (1967-68), "Oh What a Lovely War" (1968-69)) of the 1960s in Britain along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan. One of his seminal projects was the portrait of David Bowie for "Aladdin Sane" (1973). He took powerful fashion and commercial photography including campaigns for Benson & Hedges (1977) and Smirnoff (1978). He was noted for his temper and impulsive nature perhaps best demonstrated by his burning of his negatives in 1979 after an assistant told him they had no toilet paper.
There is a BBC documentary "The Man Who Shot the 60s" (2009) about his career.
