the version I took the writing out of is from Japan I assume, a magazine or single or something, maybe they embellished them, or maybe he just had nice thick eyebrows :lol:

We've gotten some little updates here and there - obviously "the fool's" great photos he's been digging out from his massive magazine collection and 'Davide' gave us three names connected to the "Loving You" shoot, so thanks to everyone for all the help and support, still... we greatly appreciate it!

We're still looking for some proper answers regarding the photographers, though, so if anyone here (or someone looking in) can help out, feel free to post here or contact us through PM's.

First, 'Davide' provided us with three names for the "Loving You" photo shoot - Bud Fraker, Bill Avery and Mal Bulloch. Doing quick searches, we bumped into this little site, which may not be anything but could be that the infos have some ground to them; the description says (link below) - "This portrait was taken during a formal portrait session of Elvis by Bud Fraker after completion of major filming of Loving You. Bud had invited Bill to shoot candids while he was shooting 8x10."

--> http://www.rockpaperphoto.com/avery-bil ... is-presley

With that, we more or less came to the conclusion that Bud was the "main photographer" for the (whole?) shoot and Bill was basically helping him out by shooting Elvis "behind the scenes". IF this was really the case, we can pretty neatly say who took certain photos, although we could definitely use some more confirmation regarding that... and then again, the photo at the end of this post is credited to Avery but is it really a "candid"...?

We've also been searching for anything from Mal Bulloch but so far nothing Elvis related has popped up, anything that would be directly credited to him - could it be he was responsible for the co-star shots, which aren't many at the moment, but I'm sure there are plenty more on someone's archives?

And finally - Bud Fraker. We've bumped into a couple non-Elvis links where he's mentioned, for one, as "Paramount’s premier publicity photographer" (see HERE, the first comment) even as late as '65. Could this mean he's basically the man responsible for practically ALL of Elvis' studio photo shoots for his Paramount flicks?

According to Variety, Bud Fraker resigned from his position at Paramount in February, 1960.

However, he was brought back when requested by Audrey Hepburn for certain projects.

Yeah, that first one isn't on the site, but the second one is, I believe, the same as this one, just different quality and zoomed in of course:

Many thanks Hilton for the Harum Scarums shots. The first one is a great find and a new one for us
We've added it in here > http://elvicities.com/~epss/index.php/Harum-Scarum-1965

The other one you posted is the same one we already have as Greggers pointed out, thanks guys.

Honey TalkNelson, thanks for the info about Bud Fraker. Looks like it's back to the drawing board trying to find the photographers for some of these movie shoots. We didn't think they would be so hard to find, but we keep hitting a dead end whenever we think we may be getting somewhere.
Your friend that wrote this latest book " The Elvis Movies" would he have any info he'd be willing to share about dates or photographers for these shoots?"

You're most welcome.

I asked Mr. Neibaur but he had no information on the photographers.

Every studio had their own photographic department. Considering the Elvis films were big pictures, it's very likely the head of each department did the shoots or at least supervised them. Some stars, like Audrey Hepburn, liked the work of a certain photographer and would request them. I'm not sure Elvis was concerned enough to request a specific photographer.

One studio photographer that I believe has been overlooked is (Eugene N.) Gene Kornman.

He is best known for his stunning photographs of Marilyn Monroe, but he may well have been involved with the photo shoot for Love Me Tender (Aug 1, 1956). He worked with Frank Powolny. WELL worth checking out.

Many thanks for the upgrade Fool, it has been added in here > http://elvicities.com/~epss/index.php/D ... ouble-1966

MaryAnn, we haven't bumped into that name when it comes to Elvis photos but who's to say he wasn't involved? However, at the moment it seems he's not connected to Elvis shoots. Thanks anyway though.

HoneyTalkNelson, thanks for taking the time to ask Mr.Neibaur if he has any info on the photographers. That was appreciated
