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."

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?
