December 1936, was born, photographed, among other things, the Cover of the second album "With the Beatles" (1963), on which the four band members are seen on a Black-and-White photo with half-illuminated faces.
Many would have thought that this photo was taken in a photo Studio, wrote McCartney on his website. "In fact, Robert took it down pretty quickly in the hallway of a hotel in which we stayed, where natural light from the Windows came at the end of the corridor. I think it lasted not longer than half an hour." In addition to the "With the Beatles" shot Freeman also the photos for the Cover of the album "Beatles for Sale" (1964), "Help" (1965) and "Rubber Soul" (1965).
