Extract from the

"Bill Zygmant (b. 1939)
Bill Zygmant began his career at the London Star. He then went on to work at the News Chronicle
on Fleet Street,
first on the picture desk and then in the darkroom. In 1962 Zygmant joined Rex picture agency but in 1964 went freelance photographing music and show business stars including The Bee Gees, Jimi Hendrix,
Marc Boolean, Mary Hopkins and The Beatles. Zygmant took one of the first photographs of John Lennon and Yoko Ono seen together  at the 1968 opening of John Crittle's Apple Tailoring boutique, before the 0ficial
announcement of their relationship. Zygmant's work has been published in New Musical Express, Billboard,
Picture Post and several British national newspapers. He has since worked as a picture editor and lecturer
on film and television production. The Hard Day's Night Hotel in Liverpool
named its Zygmant Suite in the photographer's honour"

Culture Reporter
HE took one of the first pictures of John and Yoko together and once borrowed the Beatles' psychedelic Rolls Royce for a photo shoot.
Now veteran photographer Bill Zygmant is bringing his candid snaps of the Fab Four to
Liverpool for the Mathew street festival.
An exhibition of Zygmant's work is going on show at the Iconography gallery in Mathew Street.

Visitors will have a chance to buy copies of the pictures and on Saturday have them signed by the photographer himself.

During the 1960s, London-born Zygmant snapped some of the top stars, including the Stones, The Who and Hendrix.
He said: "Hendrix was a bit of a character. I don't think he really liked having his picture done." His first photo shoot with
The Beatles came shortly after
they released their first record.

He said: "I took them to Austin Reed's in Regent Street - they were in bowler hats, with walking sticks, as city gents really." The early photograph of John and Yoko was taken at the opening of Australian John Crittle's tailoring shop, before the official announcement of their relationship. Pictures of The Scaffold will be among other photos on show at Iconography. Stephen Bailey of The Beatles Shop, which has jointly organised the exhibition, said: "There are some great shots and some unusual images." Zygmant will also be at the Beatles convention in the Adelphi Hotel on Sunday. The exhibition runs from Thursday to Wednesday, August 30.
