Stephen photographed The Smiths live across 1984-87. He photographed them  at several concerts which led to the session in November 1985. He shot them at the Salford Lads for The Queen is Dead album sleeve and later shot the sign for the back sleeve of the Strangeways, Here We Come album – he sells limited edition photographs of the Smiths.These photographs of the Smiths and other artists have been used numerous times in magazines,newspapers and books. The album sleeve photograph from the Queen is dead sleeve is the the collections of the National Portrait Gallery London, the Manchester Art Gallery and the Salford Art Gallery.

Over the past thirty years, thousands of fans of the band have made the pilgrimage to recreate the photo outside the stunning red brick Edwardian building.More recently, the image of the band shivering in mid winter outside the hallowed façade of the Salford Lads Club was back in the news for rather happier reasons. Just before Christmas, the club  launched a new promotional T -shirt bearing the famous image which raised some £60,000 in a year. Stephen gave the image from the session to the Lads club to raise funds for a trip for teenagers from the Salford Lads Club to visit Native Indians in South Dakota.
