With A Little Help From My Lens

Welcome to the Tommy Hanley Photography website, an insight to the photographer, his work, his lifetime image legacy, and now his special collector’s book, ‘With A Little Help From My Lens’.
Curated by his son Tony, and brought to fruition, as a labour of love, this unique publication, features over 300 glorious images (many of which are previously unseen), and is Tommy’s original story from behind the camera, charting his time with The Beatles, from 1963, taking the iconic ‘4 ties’ image at the Odeon Luton, UK, through to his final departure from Apple Corp as their ‘go to’ archivist in the mid 90’s.


Tommy Hanley captured some of the most unforgettable images of the biggest names in pop, rock and jazz. The Beatles were a part of his life and Tommy was a part of thiers.

‘With a Little Help From My Lens’ is a step back into the timeless era with Tommy’s own captivating narrative that unveils untold stories, rare photographs, and exclusive insights into the Fab Four’s iconic legacy. This one-of-a-kind book is a must-have for every music lover and history enthusiast.

Our website has been a long time coming and will be hosting sales and auctions for unique original vintage and limited edition prints of numerous artists that Tommy photographed over his massive career.
