Bryan Adams has been unveiled as the photographer who will shoot the 2022 Pirelli calendar.

The Summer of 69 songwriter and snapper wrote: “I’m proud to have been chosen as the photographer of the Pirelli Calendar 2022. Combining photography and music for ‘The Cal’ is very exciting and it will of course feature some extraordinary people.”

The 61-year-old rocker said he would begin shooting the iconic fashion calendar in a few weeks with more details on models to be announced in coming months.

In the 2020 edition Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart and Claire Foy starred in a shoot inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet reimagining the heroine of Shakespeare’s tragedy.

Adams is best known for songs like “Summer of ‘69”, “Heaven” and chart-topping ballad “(Everything I Do) I Do It for You”, which featured on the soundtrack of 1991 film “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves”.

As a photographer, he has snapped pictures of celebrities including actor Mads Mikkelsen, rocker Mick Jagger, model Naomi Campbell as well as Britain’s Queen Elizabeth. He has also published books of his photos, including one on injured British soldiers.

First published in the 1960s, the Pirelli calendar has a limited run and is usually gifted to the company’s clients. In recent years, it has moved away from featuring images of scantily-dressed models to more artistic themes, featuring various celebrities.


The calendar has featured some of the world’s biggest supermodels, including Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid and Gisele and after calls for more diversity actresses like Helen Mirren and Amy Schumer.

The 2021 edition was suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
