Max Browne

In 1967 Max borrowed his dad’s Pentax and took the only shots of Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood debuting at the Marquee Club and Fleetwood Mac at their Windsor Festival debut a few months later. The following year he played his one and only gig as lead guitar in a school music competition – in spite of the phenomenal audience reaction they weren’t allowed to win as ‘it was only a blues improvisation!'

Turning to photographing his heroes at gigs again, Max contributed to the predominantly monochrome music press at the time for the next decade and a half. Shots appeared in Beat Instrumental, Melody Maker, New Musical Express, Sounds and Record Mirror. Soon after this, whilst occasional gig coverage was maintained, a new road opened up in the form of documentary filming and so Max resigned himself to a career as a video-cameraman despite his slightly epic start in rock stills.

With an equally intense devotion to Romantic Art, Max has written books and articles on artists from William Blake to the Pre-Raphaelites and beyond as a specialist art-historian
