They have created countless enduring images which capture the essence of their subjects. The list of artists they have worked with is a who’s who of rock stars over the last 50 years.

Knight is one of the world’s greatest rock photographers having shot music legends since the late 60s, working with everyone from Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, BB King, Joe Perry and Buddy Guy to modern guitarist’s like John Mayer, Slash, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Joe Bonamassa and Steve Vai.

New Zealand born Bilham is an award-winning photographer best known for subjects including rock ‘n’ roll musicians, celebrities, high-end advertising campaigns, fashion and personal fine art pieces. She has over 35 years of international experience working with entertainment companies and musicians including Carlos Santana, Def Leppard, John Lee Hooker, John 5, Heart, Cyndi Lauper, The Go Go’s, Sheryl Crow, Garbage and Sick Puppies.
