Beatles photographer *Robert Freeman* has died at the age of 82, it has been confirmed.

The photographer developed a close association with the iconic group in the early 60s, shooting some of their most iconic album covers.

Indeed, his semaphore suggestion for the cover of 'Help!' resulted in some sublime Beatles trivia - unhappy with the results, he got them to spell 'NUJV'.

In all, Freeman would shoot artwork for 'Help!', 'Beatles for Sale', 'Rubber Soul', 'With the Beatles', and 'A Hard Day’s Night', while maintaining a career as a hugely in demand photographer for print press.

Closely associated with the Sunday Times, he would shoot major figures of the day, ranging from Muhammed Ali to Andy Warhol.

News of Robert Freeman's passing was confirmed on the Beatles' official social media - cause of death has not been revealed.
