Let's time travel back to that unforgettable photo shoot for Pet Sounds at the San Diego Zoo, February 10, 1966.
This particular shot, featuring The Boys amidst the giraffes, was a strong contender for the album cover - and it's not hard to see why.
The boys, hanging out with some of the zoo's larger residents, gave the series of outtakes a unique, reportage-style flair. But this wasn't just about getting some cool shots with giraffes. It was about signaling a sea change. Their neat haircuts, striped and plaid shirts began to fade into the background, making way for a fresh, contemporary look - a reflection of their transition from surf rock to the pioneers of the burgeoning California music sound. All these moments were expertly caught in George Jerman's lens.
So, ready to capture a piece of music history that reflects a transformative moment for The Beach Boys? With this shot, you're not just viewing an image; you're embracing a turning point in the band's evolution.
