Rocker Bryan Adams persuaded pop punk Pink to pose topless for his new celebrity photo book.

The Run To You hitmaker is now an acclaimed photographer and fans can see his latest celebrity portraits in new tome Exposed, which features a foreword written by the Canadian's longtime pal Elton John.

The book features shots of Elton, Mick Jagger, Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson, Sting and Lindsay Lohan, but there's one saucy snap he's particularly proud of after persuading pink to strip down for a photo session.

He tells, "It was a nice day and it was kind of hot outside. I suggested it might be a good idea; she said to me, 'Not even my husband talks to me like that,' and then off came her T-shirt."

Shots from the book were recently exhibited at the Museum of Multi Media in Moscow, Russia and the show is now heading to Hamburg, Germany before moving on to Dallas, Texas in December (12).
