Images from Shoot’s trip to Hong Kong and Beijing last week, ‘ part of a continuing series’.
The idea was to blog as we went but China was too exciting and there were just too many pictures to take, too many places and too many people to meet for that to happen. It’s also taken a day or two to edit the 1000 or so images and here’s the first taste. There’ll be more on the blog later as well as galleries on the Shoot and the Paul Rider web sites.
Check out the Farah Vintage lookbook for Spring / Summer 2011. The photos are shot by our very own in house living legend – Gavin Watson, working with stylist Way Perry to create this 50s Ivy League prep meets 80s mod collection.
We are in Beijing and clearly it’s just become the year of the rabbit. Not entirely sure what this means but we are having a very brilliant time. Meetings have been great and positive and everyone we meet is warm friendly and hospitable. So hospitable that the only real hazard is over eating and one or two of the ‘delicacies’ have been a bit challenging. Duck tongues are not going to feature on the menu at home any time soon. Today we managed to fit in a visit to the amazing Forbidden City and tomorrow we have more meetings.
And here is a picture of a poodle in trainers, the second one we saw in one afternoon!
Adele and Paul have embarked on their Chinese expedition. No….not a tour of North Londons finest local eating establishments, but a sojourn east to Hong Kong and Beijing to meet the finest creatives in all the land. The Riders will no doubt be updating us with snaps and news from the trip along the way. Watch this space.
Pip recently visited Bristol to spend the day shooting the newest dysfunctional pupils of Roundview College. These beauties are only some of the 3rd Generation cast of the BAFTA winning teen drama Skins – including Sebastian De Souza, Laya Lewis and Freya Mavor – which is currently in the first few weeks of what will undoubtedly be another brilliant run for the E4 team.
Whilst most of us have the natural urge to hibernate during the dark days of January & February those lovely lively people at Gymbox are a never ending source of active inspiration. This is just one uplifting image in a series; shot by Adrian Green with creative by Zip Design and props by Propped Up.
The imminent release from the beautiful, & immensely talented young Dionne Bromfield, captured here in early January by Amit & Naroop. The great news is that the girl doesn’t just look this good; she also has a voice that will knock your socks off.
