The National Portrait Gallery purchases Jay Brooks' photograph of champion cyclist, Sir Bradley Wiggins

The National Portrait Gallery in London has purchased this photograph of Sir Bradley Wiggins, by Jay Brooks, for their Photographs Collection.

Sir Bradley, whose career achievements include numerous titles from both track and road cycling, is the first British cyclist to gain a podium finish in Tour de France history.  Wiggins was awarded his knighthood as part of the 2013 New Year Honours.

The Gallery now has four of Jay’s photographs – including actress Hayley Atwell and The Other Boleyn Girl screenwriter, Peter Morgan.

See more of Jay’s portraits on the Shoot website.

This weeks NME cover starring the Marvelous Modfather shot by Dean Chalkley. A very wise man indeed.

This is one in a series of images of the central cast of Dr Who with Matt Smith portraying the great man in his latest incarnation, shot by the equally regenerative Adrian Green.

We are delighted to introduce Jesse Jenkins, the newest edition to our photography family. Formerly a professional skateboarder Jesse has cut his teeth assisting over the last couple of years and is now going it alone shooting for international record labels, fashion brands and publications. Welcome to the fold Jesse!

Adrian Greens’ cover shoot for Kultur Spiegel magazine with the delightful Edgar Ramirez. Charmingly fresh from a punishing whirlwind of international film festivals promoting his remarkable portrayal of Carlos the Jackal in the widely acclaimed Carlos.

His words, not ours mind….Amit & Naroop’s superb session with the ubiquitous, monumentally witty Ricky Gervais is gracing the cover of this weeks edition of The Big Issue.

The old boys are The Men in Scarlet, seven Chelsea Pensioners , and their album, released this week, is being tipped to be the Christmas number one.  Even though they have a combined age of over 500 years, the band’s music is long on spirit, humour and the occasional raucous chorus.

Paul shot the cover in the grounds of The Royal Hospital, Chelsea earlier this year.  “The ‘Men’ were brilliant to photograph. Great characters with great faces.  And very funny, subjecting everyone at the photo session to a barrage of comments and jokes, a lot of which involved viagra.”

All the proceeds from the record will go to The Royal Hospital’s restoration fund

Some special new work from Dean Chalkley for Tony Christie. Dean was recently asked to photograph Tony for his new album/single press, and jumped at the chance. Hear more on the Jukebox on Deans site http://www.deanchalkley.com

Gavin Watson’s exhibition “Neville” opened last night at 55DSL in Soho.  Neville himself, Gavin’s brother, muse and the subject of the giant prints that are the substance of the show, could not attend, he was DJing somewhere in Europe, but many others did and a fine time was had.  Gavin posed for photographs and adopted the Watson family’s trademark pose.

Shoot would like to thank everyone who came for coming and making it a great evening,  Metro for making the prints and the crew at 55DSL for organising the show and providing the space. Thank you all mmmmmwah!

The show runs until 21st November and a limited edition tee shirt featuring young Neville is on sale in the store.
