For the last three years Jasper has been the Chairman and Chief Creative Director of The Conran Shops and has propelled the stores into the new century giving them back the energy and allure they had in their 1980’s heyday. As he told Vanity Fair’s Alice B-B he enjoys his role, as he says, ‘I like the theatre of a shop. Turns out I am a retailer!
Pip recently photographed The Hunger Games, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Bridge to Terabithia star Josh Hutcherson for British GQ Magazine. Josh spoke the magazine about his current role as Peeta Mellark, and his mother’s mysterious surname…
Here’s a sneak peak of the shoot which took place across the rooftops of The Cafe Royal Hotel in London’s Trafalgar Square. Josh’s sports luxe looks were styled by Anders Solvsten Thomsen, with grooming by Paul Donovan.
Check out the December issue of GQ for the rest of Pip’s images and the interview.
Food and still life photographer Scott Grummett was commissioned to photograph the heroes of the new Honest Burgers breakfast menu – the Honest Muffin, Breakfast Bun and Rosti Muffin.
Honest also celebrated the opening of their new restaurant on Liverpool Street by giving away 100 free burgers everyday this week – all gone in a matter of minutes!
Below are Scott’s images of the stark tiled face and cosy interiors of the new Liverpool Street restaurant.
If you haven’t read Scott’s discussion on food and restaurant photography, you can find it on our blog. In it he discusses the method behind what he does for clients just like Honest.
Jay Brooks photographed actress Rebecca Front for the cover of her book, Curious, a collection of autobiographical stories, memories and personal anxieties. Front is currently touring literary festivals with the book, which has received critical acclaim since it’s release.
By turns poignant, comic and uplifting, CURIOUS is a book of stories, all of them true, though sometimes perhaps a little bent out of shape in the telling. We learn, among other things, why a Mexican wave is a symbol of oppression, how to navigate a conversational cul-de-sac with a French vegan train driver, and why keeping a pet rabbit on a lead is perfectly normal.
Pip photographed Olympic super heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua for the December issue of Men’s Health magazine. The shoot was part of the magazine’s 100 page watch pull out, ‘Synchronised’.
In 2011 Joshua won the silver medal at the World Amateur Boxing Championships, securing his place on Great Britain’s 2012 London Olympic team, where he won gold. Since beginning his professional career Joshua stands undefeated, claiming the WBO International Heavyweight title in October.
