Hi, I'm trying to find out info about a key Beatles event

in 1967 when they met he Maharishi, a friend of mine (now deceased) was present with them, and was even in some of the photographs 

the problem is, he was mostly edited out of them. In one you can see his face, the drum he was carrying and his legs! But it would be nice to be able to track down a photo from a different angle if possible 

I'm looking for the date they met the Maharishi, I know 1967, but don't know when exactly 

and would any of you have other photos from the meeting that weren't published in the papers? Or know how I would begin to trace the photographer?

@iqmdublin The photograph you've included was taken at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London on 24 August 1967. There was a open photocall for the many press photographers present, which would mean photography agencies and newspapers might have more photographs. One photographer who was there is Philip Townsend, who now has a website where some images from his archive are available. It might be worth contacting him to see whether he has any images including your friend.

Thanks a lot Ron, I've sent him an email now to ask if he had any more info. 

I don't know anything about British Newspapers though, would there be any particular ones I should contact do you think? 

And do you know of any other photographers who were there? if not, no worries, hopefully mr.townsend might know a few as well

@iqmdublin 

There are a couple on Getty. One is by an agency stringer, but the other is credited to a C Maher. It's co-credited to the Daily Express so it's a fair guess s/he was working for them.

Here are two more, licensed by Rex Features. I think they're both the same picture, cropped differently, but different from the one you posted. I suspect they're by the same (uncredited) photographer.

Oh, and there are more on Alamy, though again your friend doesn't appear to be in them.
