Apple has published the latest in its ongoing series of profile reports into the work of leading creatives across multiple disciplines.

The latest report looks at the work of legendary music photographer, Andy Earl, who is responsible for some of the most iconic music images of the past 25 years.

Earl began his career shooting the well-known image used on the cover of Bow Wow Wow's debut album, ‘See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang, Yeah, City All Over! Go Ape Crazy!’, which featured a naked Annabella Lwin in a recreation of the famed Édouard Manet painting, Luncheon on the Grass.

The report reveals that Earl finally made a switch to using Aperture in his work 12 months ago, driving him to state: "Creatively speaking, digital photography and Aperture mean I have a much bigger palette to work with. There really aren't any limits to what is achievable."

The interesting retrospective look at Earl's career ends with the photographer stressing that using professional imaging software leaves him as an artist with more time to focus on ideas and taking better photos.
