Scott Grummett was commissioned in 2015 by Lurpak to create a series of images based around the tagline ‘A Taste of…’ as in A Taste of Mexico, A Taste of Israel and so on.

‘We were presented with a list of national dishes to create with recipes using Lurpak’ Scott said, ‘and then to shoot them looking tasty.’  Mission accomplished!  Including the finest picture of a churro we have ever seen.

Gavin Watson shot the Ski Special for the Style section in the January edition of Men’s Health which is in the shops now.

The story was styled by Eric Down, groomed by Oscar Alexander, modeled by Tyler @ AMCK and shot in the neo-alpine surroundings of Bodo’s Schloss, amidst the high peaks of London W8.

Les Liaisons Dangereuses

Jay Brooks shot the poster for the Donmar Warehouse production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses featuring its stars Elaine Cassidy, Janet McTeer and Dominic West.  The show opened in mid December but from January 28th it can be seen on the National Theatre’s Live service in a cinema near you.

Directed by Josie Rourke (Coriolanus) it is based on Choderlos de Laclos’ novel of sex, intrigue and betrayal in pre-revolutionary France which scandalised the world in 1782. Two hundred years later, Christopher Hampton’s irresistible adaptation swept the board, winning the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Play.  Josie Rourke’s revival now marks the play’s thirty year anniversary.

The Voice

The Voice is back for its fifth series.  To fire up audience anticipation, this week the BBC released this set of spectacular images from the lens of Ray Burmiston.  They feature this year’s cast of coaches: the ever present Will.i.am, the returning Kaiser Chief Ricky Wilson and two new recruits, the never under-dressed Paloma Faith and shy retiring Boy George.  Meet The Voice coaches on iPlayer here.

The photos set the tone – by staging a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party – for the series which promises some exciting and intriguing ‘inter-personal dynamics’ between the occupants of the revolving chairs but with less emphasis on being Welsh than in previous seasons.

If you click here you can see a completely all round 360° tour of The Voice photoshoot as it happened!  We especially like the orgasmic cry of ‘ yes, yes, yes’ from Ray at the end.

The Voice starts ‘its journey’ on BBC 1 at 7.30 on Saturday 9th January.

 

 

Jasper Conran

Vanity Fair asked Jay Brooks to photograph Jasper Conran in the technicolor glory of the re-vamped and re-launched Conran Shop.

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!

Billionaire Boy

Ray Burmiston shot the portraits for Billionaire Boy. Catherine Tate and Warwick Davies (above) were part of a stellar cast in this hour-long adaptation of David Walliams’ book shown on BBC One on New Year’s Day.

Billionaire Boy is the story of Len, who makes a billion from inventing a new toilet roll, and his 12 year-old son Joe, who appears to have everything he could want – but what he really needs is a friend.

The cast includes John Thomson (The Fast Show, Cold Feet) as Joe’s dad, Len, who invents a new toilet roll – Bumfresh – making him millions. Catherine Tate (Doctor Who, The Catherine Tate Show) is Sapphire Diamond, a 40-something hand model who still likes to pretend she’s 21 and is dating Len for his money.  Playing Joe’s shy and very nervous head teacher is James Fleet (Vicar Of Dibley, Partners In Crime), while Rebecca Front (The Thick Of It) plays Joe’s firm but fair opera-loving teacher.

Warwick Davis (Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi, Harry Potter, Life’s Too Short) plays himself, in the role of the family’s celebrity butler. Joe is played by Elliot Sprakes in his first major TV role.

David Walliams (Little Britain, Big School, Britain’s Got Talent) plays Mrs Trafe, a dinner lady at Joe’s school who is described as ‘dirty and old’ and ‘dreadful at cooking’.
