Gered Mankowitz is regarded as one of the greatest rock photographers of the last 50 years. During the Rolling Stones' formative years from 1965-1967, he was their photographer and friend, not only responsible for some of the band's most memorable and candid photographs, but for shooting the covers of their Between the Buttons and December Children albums. He also has photographed such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Marianne Faithfull, Billy Idol, Gary Glitter, Dave Edmunds, Annie Lennox, Slade, Duran Duran, Traffic, Free, The Small Faces, Soft Machine, Slade, Suzi Quatro, Sweet, Elton John, Kate Bush, Eurythmics, ABC, The Yardbirds, and Jimi Hendrix. His portraits of Jimi Hendrix were later used for the cover of his 1993 compilation album The Ultimate Experience.
Today Gered Makowitz is based at his North London studio, taking pictures for the advertising and music industry. He contributes regularly to Mojo magazine, and continues to photograph bands for album covers such as Oasis, The Verve, Catatonia, Kula Shaker and more. Mankowitz continues to gain world-wide fame for his contributions to pop-culture. His work is sold worldwide.
