Elmar Ludwig, Edmund Nägele
& David Noble are the photographers who made the photographs featured in the
book. Recruited by John Hinde because of their technical abilities, they were
supervised by Hinde making photographs to his very specific house style…bright

Butlin’s photographers are all living and working professionally today.
