Ray worked with Island Records and the art direction team at Form to capture the band’s quirky sense of humour in the artwork. Earlier we posted a shot of the boys mastering a human pyramid, and Ray’s shot of the group clambering around in a PanTower made it to the cover of Metro Scene.
Just in case you hadn’t seen the media and fan furore on every news post or twitter feed…The Stone Roses are reforming!? YES!! Ok so maybe we’re not the first but we’re equally excited and want to join in the frenzy!!
While these four lads were in their prime, SHOOT photographer Paul Rider was there to capture them mucking around and blowing like fish – it seemed like a good formula.

Now to get our hands on some tickets…
As many of you would already know, Shoot photographer, Pip, is also a very talented filmmaker and was recently commissioned to direct and shoot the official video for Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s new single ‘Shine’ – the third single taken from the debut album ‘Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm’.
Following up from some of the more conceptual videos Ben has done in the past, Pip decided to go for a much more organic approach, simply centred around ‘morning light’ (which is referenced in the lyrics of the song). The vast majority of the video was shot at sunrise in a little fishing town called Whitby in both Pip and Ben’s native North Yorkshire. We think it’s just beautiful – the song and video.

This week there’s much a buzz about iconic photographer Gavin Watson – ‘the man responsible for documenting so many facets of British youth culture’ – as quoted in the latest quarterly edition of urban fashion magazine, WAD, which features a profile piece on the man himself in addition to a 14 page spread. Entitled Council Estate of Mind, Gavin proves he’s still got the urban edge.
Then, coming from a completely different spectrum, we read that Henry Holland’s autumn/ winter collection, Pastel Punks, was inspired by Gavin Watson’s photographs of skindheads and punks…cool!
Lee Evans biography, The Life of Lee, features a portrait by Ray Burmiston on its cover. Ray has worked with Lee many times before but their efforts usually have Lee underwater, flying through the air or smashing through panes of glass. However, this portrait, as you can see, is an altogether calmer piece of work – simple, direct and touching on the inner Lee. Life of Lee is out now published by Penguin Books.
Noel Gallagher and Dean Chalkley, reunited once again, this time for the NME cover story – ahead of Noel’s new band and self titled debut album release, ‘High Flying Birds’.
