David began photographing TV Shows like ‘Ready Steady Go’ and ‘Thank Your Lucky Stars’ which were shot during the day. Here he made many of his now classic shots of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Dusty Springfield.
As his career developed, David shot many more luminaries, such as Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan.In 1980 He published his first book, Jazz Album, and took over from Terry O’Neill as tour photographer for Frank Sinatra.
