About Six Shooters
Six Shooters is an exclusive photographic portrait of the contemporary music scene by a collaboration of the UK’s six leading music photographers: Andrew Cotterill,
Andy Fallon, Paul Harries, Mick Hutson, Roger Sargent and Andy Willsher.
The collective represents the culmination of many years of photography and friendship. 1999 saw six of the UK’s best music photographers head to Reading Festival, each separately undertaking assignments to document the festival’s performers. Three days later, after much equipment sharing and lens cap finding, the group departed having forged what was to be lasting friendships. Today this group of photographers is the most sought after in the business, having between them shot every notable band and musician you can think of, toured with the very best and published in almost every major publication both nationally and across the world. Individually they each represent one sixth of a group of the most internationally recognised, leading figures in the photographic industry.
What is more, in a competitive and cutthroat business, these six photographers remain firmly in it together – creating a working co-op that offers a cast-iron guarantee of great photography as well as artistic integrity. As Serge Pizzorno of Kasabian puts it, “These are the nice guys of Rock ‘n’ Roll”.
In 2011 they produced the largest scale exhibition in London’s ‘Proud Gallery’ history.
The Six Shooters portfolio reads like a who’s who of music’s most influential, critically acclaimed and commercially successful individuals: Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Paul Weller, Björk, Green Day, Lily Allen, Pete Doherty, The White Stripes; U2, Chris Martin, Dave Grohl, Kasabian, Razorlight, Killers, Jay Z, Jarvis Cocker, Ian Brown, Oasis, Morrissey, REM, Eminem, Marilyn Manson, The Kooks, Libertines, The Clash, Bobby Gillespie, Blur, Kings of Leon, Metallic and Motorhead to name a mere fraction.
We are looking forward to taking the exhibition on tour in 2012.
