When Robbie Williams shot the video for his new single, Scarlet Page, who regularly plays the fly on the wall in Williams’ world, was commissioned to record the event, the outfits, the extras and everything.  The video, directed by Robbie’s long time collaborator Vaughn Arnell, he did ‘Angels’ amongst other things, is an opulent extravaganza going under the title of ‘Party Like a Russian’.

The song has proved controversial. It has already upset quite a lot of Russians who feel that the clip stereotypes them as evil oligarchs, while other people have accused it of being sexist.  Robbie, on the other hand, as you see in the pictures, seems to have enjoyed the whole thing a lot.

The band, who come from Denver Colorado, are touring at the moment and play London’s Brixton Academy on 24th April.

Resonators-cover1

ResonatorsScarlet Page‘s project to create a portrait gallery of the world’s greatest rock guitarists – is about to be launched.  The fruits of a two year project, Resonators features Brian May, Paul Weller, Jeff Beck, Graham Coxon, Jimmy Page and many more, all presented in high quality black and white

The book, beautifully designed by former GQ art director Warren Jackson, goes on sale on 1st December and this week, on 26th November, the Resonators exhibition opens at Proud’s Camden gallery.

Scarlet has been hard at work promoting the launch and there has been plenty of press interest in the project.  She even made it on to the famous red sofa for an interview on BBC Breakfast this morning.  See below

Scarlet Page shot the pictures for Q magazine’s feature on the Stereophonics to tie in with the release of the band’s new album ‘Keep the Village Alive’ later this month.

Scarlet has history with the Stereophonics and has worked with them many times over the last 15 years.  Amongst other things she created the image for the cover of their second album ‘Performance and Cocktails’ and recently photographed the band’s frontman Kelly Jones for inclusion in her ‘Resonators’ – guitar legends – project.

The pictures and the interview by eminent journalist and Scot Tom Doyle are to be found in the October issue of Q which is out now.

Scarlet Page‘s crowdfunding campaign to finance the publication of her book ‘Resonators’, portraits of the greatest guitar players of the age, finished on 7th August and we are pleased to announce it was a resounding success.

Scarlet Page has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publication of her Resonators project in book form.  Resonators, first seen as an exhibition at the Royal Albert Hall fund raising for Teenage Cancer Trust, is Scarlet’s collection of portraits of legendary guitar players including Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller, Slash, Peter Green and Jimmy Page.

The book is looking fabulous and will feature the Resonators images in beautiful, and rock appropriate, black and white.  It is designed by GQ’s Warren Jackson with words by the award winning novelist Ben Myers.

To find out more about the Kickstarter and the pledges on offer click here.  And here for the Resonators on Facebook.

Scarlet Page was invited to join Robbie Williams ‘Let Me Entertain You’ tour to shoot the show and the man they call ‘the Robster’ backstage.

As you can see the show was the usual ‘low-key’ Williams affair – an all out, laser-lit, no-holds barred stadium extravaganza with all the elements you’d expect plus an appearance by Robbie’s dad Pete Conway!  (see above)

Scarlet has worked with Robbie a lot in the past, amongst other things she worked on the book ‘Somebody Someday’,  so this was something of a reunion.  As you can see in the pictures they seem to have been entertained.

Chrissie Hynde

Scarlet Page adds a new female guitar hero to her Resonators project – punk rock royalty Chrissie Hynde, guitarist and lead singer of 80’s rock band The Pretenders.

Hynde moved from the US to the UK at the start of the punk era, and founded The Pretenders in 1978. Members have come and gone but she remained the front woman throughout the band’s history, a phenomenal personality, songwriter and musician.

The Sex PistolsJohn Lydon described her as “a tough old bird” and Morrissey writes in his Autobiography that she is “the funniest person I have ever met.”

And here at Shoot we think Hynde is a superb addition to the Resonators project – a visual celebration of the musicians that created the sound we call rock. Previous portraits of the rock elite include:  Brian May, Slash, Paul Weller, Sir Paul McCartney and guitarists from bands like: The Stone Roses, Sex Pistols , Oasis, and The Eagles.

Scarlet has been longing for a female subject to add to the project and with Hynde’s rock history and musical talent she fits the bill perfectly…some added rock chick for Resonators!

Chrissie’s portrait can be found on the Shoot website along with all Resonators prints www.shootgroup.com/photographers/scarlet-page/resonators/ (print sales in aid of teenage cancer trust.)​

Scarlet Page music photography: Scarlet shoots Canadian singer Kiesza for Q MagazineCanadian singer Kiesza and Scarlet Page trekked around London for their Q Magazine shoot 'Hideaway' singer Kiesza poses for Scarlet Page

Scarlet’s portraits of Canadian musician Kiesza were in last month’s issue of Q Magazine!

The singer and dancer exploded onto the UK music scene this year with her number one single ‘Hideaway’, which was premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The album, Sound of a Woman, was released in October on indie label Lokal Legend.

Scarlet said, “in a swish new Shepherds Bush hotel shooting a talented lady named Keisza. I love photographing true performers, she can sing, dance and is amazingly photogenic.  We do a whole press sessions worth in 30 minutes.  She is bringing 90′s music back too, awesome!”

Scarlet Page’s new exhibition – ‘Resonators’ – is about guitar heroes.  It is a stellar collection of portraits featuring some of the biggest names and most famous faces in music.

The epic project saw Scarlet travel far and wide to capture the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Slash, Brian May, Wilko Johnson, John Squire, and, of course, her father Jimmy Page.

It’s been a while but The Darkness are officially back. As you can imagine it was an interesting and colourful day on set for photographer Scarlet Page who has worked with the band extensively and spent the most of 2004 as the Darkness’ official photographer.

More photos to be revealed as the August release date of the new album approaches, but don’t miss the opportunity to see the boys squeezing into their usual leathers and catsuit to support the Queen of costumes, Lady Gaga, for her European tour.
