Beatles London Photoshoot

WEST HAMPSTEAD, 1965 AND SOME CRAZY PHOTOSHOOTS OCCURRED

Towards the end of 1965, in West Hampstead, London, the Beatles participated in a photo shoot. Photographer Robert Whitaker had prepared an elaborate set. It comprised of mirrors, silver foil, polythene sheets and polystyrene. Assisting Robert in the session were Stuart Brisley and theatre designer Carol Russell.

A photograph from the session served as the cover of the BritIsh EP Yesterday which was released on March 4th 1966. It was a very convenient location for The Beatles as it was in London near Abbey Road Studios.
