John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Encouraged by his uncle, Michael Putland began shooting at age nine in hometown Harrow-on-the-Hill. Upon leaving school at sixteen he started work for a London based studio, studying under Louis Klementaski, the legendary motor racing photographer, and Walter Curtain, for Time/Life. His first private assignment on Mick Jagger for ‘Disc & Music Echo’ paved the way for Putland to photograph almost all of the biggest names in music for a vast majority of record companies, especially CBS, Warner, Atlantic and EMI. Putland formed his own photo agency ‘Retna’ while in New York, creating a branch in London upon his return in the early eighties.
