50 years on and the Beatles are still big news in Liverpool. Thousands of tourists and millions of pounds are spent as visitors come to the city to pinpoint all the locations that have a link to the band’s history or are currently running cultural events linked to them.
A University of Liverpool study published in Feb. 2016 suggested that impact of Beatles specific activities was calculated to be a £39m turnover and 690 jobs in 2014. While indirect impact - the degree to which Beatles-related business benefits local suppliers – was calculated to be a total of £15.64m turnover and 276 jobs in the city in 2014. Overall the researchers suggested the net impact of the Beatles legacy in 2014 was £81.9m turnover and 2,335 jobs. Which is pretty impressive!
Of course I am a fan of their music and have a big archive of Beatles related images. I sell these directly but also through picture libraries. Doing a quick review, I’ve sold quite a few in the last year – here they all are.
Don't hesitate to get in touch if you are after Beatles related images from Liverpool - if I don't have something already, I can head out and shoot exactly what you need.

"As a new business, it was very important to me to get the right publicity photographs for my marketing materials. When I met David, he listened carefully to what I was trying to achieve with my brand, and then produced fabulous photographs that were exactly what I needed. He was extremely professional throughout but also nice and friendly. Myself and my clients found it easy to relax with him, which was essential to create the right vibe for the shoot. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone."
