b.1939 - d.2019
One of the early innovators of rock-and-roll photography, renowned photographer Guy Webster spanned the worlds of music, films and politics in a stellar 40+-year career. While shooting album covers and billboards for groups that included the Rolling Stones, Mamas and the Papas, Beach Boys, Byrds, Doors, Simon & Garfunkel and Chicago, he also photographed such film legends as Rita Hayworth, Dean Martin and Natalie Wood.
As the primary celebrity photographer for hundreds of worldwide magazines, Webster's artistry has captured a vast range of talent and luminaries from Igor Stravinski, Truman Capote and Zubin Mehta to Barbara Streisand, Jack Nicholson, Candice Bergen, Michelle Pfeiffer and Ted Danson. Presidential subjects have included Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.
His life's work is collected in the award-winning book Big Shots: The Photography of Guy Webster published in 2014 and his photographs have been exhibited in galleries and in private collections all over the world.
In his later years Webster continued to work in his studio in Venice, California, while pursuing his passions for family and vintage motorcycles. Sadly, he passed away due to cancer in February, 2019.
We hope to have more details on any remaining signed photographs in his archive and the potential for future availability of his work very soon. Please contact us for more information on any specific pieces.
