Gered toured with the Stones in 1965, and made the cover photographs to their 1965 Out of Our Heads (December’s Children) and 1966 Between the Buttons albums. He also worked with Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Marianne Faithfull and many others.

  • A variant of the 1966 album cover photograph. Gered recalls: "This photograph is an out-take from the "Between the Buttons" album cover session. It was taken very early on a beautiful morning after an all night recording session. The Stones always recorded through the night and I thought that their "look" after one of these gruelling sessions might capture an image that would be right for the time. The band's manager and producer Andrew Loog Oldham agreed, as did the band, and at about 5.30 a.m. we all set off in a procession of limousines for Primrose Hill. I had built a rather clumsy filter of black card, glass and Vaseline, which I hoped would create a strange, ethereal and slightly "stoned" look to the photos. In spite of Brian Jones being rather unhelpful some of the time, and all of us feeling the bitter early morning chill, the photos turned out better than I could have wished for and the cover image has become one of my most famous and enduring photos of the Stones".

Gered recalls: "This photograph is from my first shoot with Jimi and has become my most famous image of the great musician. He was very easy to work with, and would arrive at the studio looking perfect. He was a very quiet and gentle person, and he laughed a great deal."

Gered recalls: "This shot of Jimi smoking has become one of the most famous images of the great musician ever taken. Jimi laughed a great deal and had a great sense of humour; however the look of the time was for everybody to be sullen and moody, but in spite of that a lot of my favourite photos have caught Jimi smiling."
