Rock Music Photographers, A-Z, Linda McCartney

Linda McCartney has always been a special person inside the music of our heart. We love her artistry, her devout vegetarianism, and her deep sense of person we felt her to be.

We especially love Linda McCartney’s photography, which is always warm and reflective of those she captured in her lens.

“My big break was in June 1966 with the Rolling Stones. This was a session which came about more of less by accident, as did so many good things at that time.” Linda McCartney

She next became the house photographer at the Fillmore East concert hall. She had a close friendship with Jimi Hendrix who trusted her explicitly. It was always easy to see why that was the case as Linda McCartney came across as a very caring and genuine person.

She photographed Eric Clapton for Rolling Stone magazine, becoming the first woman to have a photo featured on the front cover. Linda and Paul McCartney also appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone, making her the only person both to have taken a photo, and to have been photographed, for the front cover of the magazine.[1] A collection of photographs from that time, Linda McCartney’s Sixties: Portrait of an Era, was published in 1992. We own this lovely book of portraits. My wife and I also attended the museum exhibit of Linda McCartney’s Sixties: Portrait of an Era at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich in April of 1999.
