Bill Zygmant
Bill Zygmant Lennon Suite 2010 (Hard Days Night Hotel)

Bill's passion for Photography started at an early age seeing press photographers on newsreels photographing film stars. Bill got a job as a paper boy to enable him to purchase his first camera and spent most of his leisure hours looking for good photo opportunities, local rock & roll groups and interesting people before beginning his career at the London Star. He then went on to work at the News Chronicle in Fleet Street - first on the picture desk and then in the darkroom.

In 1962 he joined a Fleet Street picture agency where he soon made lots of contacts, then in 1966 he went freelance, photographing music and show business stars including the BeeGees, Jimi Hendrix, Marc Bolan, Mary Hopkins and the Beatles, with his work being regularly published in the Musical Express, Billboard, Picture Post as well as british national newspapers and magazines. Bill took the first pictures of John Lennon and Yoko Ono seen together months before the official announcement of their relationship in public at the opening of John Crittles Apple Tailoring Boutique. He has since worked as picture editor and a lecturer on film and television production.

The Hard Daysnighthotel in Liverpool named a suite the Bill's honour. "The ZYGMANT SUITE" is in recognition of his many iconic Beatle pictures. Two of his pictures displayed in the John Lennon Suite gracing the white Grand Piano.

In 2009 Bills pictures were exhibited in the National
