Elvis Movie/Publicity Photo Shoots

Post by Deleted User 9846 »

We're now located on a completely NEW site (Thanks Jordan!).

First, the idea of the 'project' quickly once more; we've all seen all those 'official' photos of Elvis that are scattered literally everywhere - they're gracing the LP/45 single/EP/CD/DVD etc. covers/sleeves, posters, books, all kinds of merchandise and what not. We decided to try to collect as much of these 'photo shoot' photos together to give you a better idea of how many different ones there actually are.

As you'll also see on the link below, there were quite a few of these 'sessions' during Elvis' career - basically one for each movie and some extras in-between. Seeing all of them together with as many as possible photos from each shoot in their 'proper places', it gives a whole new appreciation for the photos and a much better idea of how much work might've gone in a session like this.


Now that we don't have to use Photobucket anymore, we also added another "feature" for the project - you can use the search bar to quickly find which shots were used in which album/single covers (at the moment, only US releases (released during Elvis' time)) ... just type in either the catalog number or the title of the LP/EP/45rpm single and it should find the shots just fine.

Other than that, feel free to browse through now well over 2000 photos of Elvis, and as always, all feedback and help (better quality versions, mistakes etc.) are more than welcome.


Enjoy the all new "EPSS".

Thanks for this site. Love the idea!


You know, that version of "Dixie" and uh, the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," it's so beautiful!
The band he's put together is so over-the-top, and only Elvis would have that kinda spending power, and just audacious craziness. Choirs, and orchestras, and a great rhythm section, maybe another gospel group on the side. None of it makes sense until you suddenly hear something like that, and they're all playing a role in that, and it's very moving music. That's the pure joy of music in the man. You know, that's when I see everything stop.

Within the last week or two a good dozen or more new shots and around the same amount of upgrades have been added to various folders. Some cool finds among them as well, like an 'alternate' shot of Elvis wearing the cool shades he briefly wore during the Double Trouble shoot.

Also, the "Easy Come, Easy Go" folder has been deleted as it's more than likely no photo shoot was done for the movie... and it seems like it was the only one.


Hope you've been enjoying the new EPSS so far... more to come...
