#50 - Mike McCartney

Peter Michael McCartney , known professionally as Mike McGear, is an English performing artist and photographer who was a member of the groups The Scaffold and Grimms. 


McCartney was a photographer during his entire musical career and has continued with photography since then. Beatles' manager Brian Epstein nicknamed him "Flash Harry" in the early 1960s because he was always taking pictures with a flashgun.


He has published books of pictures that he took of the Beatles backstage and on tour, and in 2008 brought out a limited edition book of photos he took spontaneously backstage at Live8. In 2005, McCartney premiered and exhibited a collection of photographs that he had taken in the 1960s, called "Mike McCartney's Liverpool Life", both in Liverpool and other venues, such as The Provincial Museum of Alberta.
