Ian Wright began his career as a photographer as a teenager working for The Northern Echo, a newspaper in the Northeast of England. Through this job, he was granted access to all the up and coming rock groups in the 60s including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Animals and The Dave Clark Five.
He has compiled his photos (many never before seen) in a new book called "On the Brink of Fame: Pop Stars in the Swinging '60s".
Ian went on to an illustrious career working for The Sunday Times in London photographing the Royal Family (including the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana), film stars, celebrities and politicians.
