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

Amit and Naroop‘s Singh project is currently gracing the hallowed halls of Leo Burnett London.

Amit and Naroop launched The Singh Project in Autumn 2014 and it immediately caught the attention of the public and the press.  It was covered by BBC World News, The Huffington Post, The Guardian and The Hindustani Times to name but a few.  It is part of a wider change that is taking place in the way Sikhs are being perceived as Lauren Cochrane commented in The Guardian.

‘Including a sword-wielding man in his sixties, a smiling boy, a polo player and finger-clicking magician, the male Sikh subjects of The Singh Project are wildly different but they are also united by the signifiers of the religion – the turban. Photographers Amit and Naroop’s exhibition at the Framers Gallery also shows how the look now has a place on fashion’s radar. Dapper young Sikh men in sharp suits are now a mainstay of mainstream street style blogs and Sikh jewellery designer Waris Ahluwalia something of a figurehead starring in Gap adverts and Wes Anderson films.

Sikhs themselves are behind the shift. Along with Amit and Naroop, Pardeep Bahra, the 23-year-old fashion blogger – and Sikh – set up Singh Street Style in 2013, describing himself as the “Sikh sartorialist”. He has since scored himself nearly 35,000 followers on Instagram, modelling gigs with Adidas and Samsung and a line of sweatshirts with a cartoon Sikh character. Amit and Naroop have his seal of approval. “They have done an amazing job bringing out a sense of mystique, magic and beauty in their subjects,” says Bahra. “Coming from a similar line of work I feel this is an excellent way to not only celebrate the image of a Sikh, but to normalise the image of a turban and beard through the eyes of the west.” Normalised perhaps. Fashionable? Definitely.’

Ray Burmiston shot national treasure and national choirmaster, Gareth Malone, for Sunday’s Event magazine.

The idea of the shoot was clearly to cast off Gareth’s twinkly choirboy image and to release his inner Ziggy Stardust.  To this end he was pictured in one of Camden Town’s sweatier rock venues and the cover of the magazine promises revelations of what he gets up to on tour. Apparently he drinks white wine and wears a onesie!

But the ever dapper Gareth really cuts it.  He looks super sharp in the pictures and the Les Paul really suits him.  We especially like the houndstooth check suit!

Gareth Malone’s current TV series The Naked Choir, a competition to find Britain’s best amateur acapella singers, is on Tuesday nights on BBC2

The producers of #Strictly Come Dancing commissioned Ray Burmiston to produce these glittering and glamourous images of the couples contesting this year’s competition.  But as we know it is hell out there in the world of ballroom, no quarter asked or given, and some have already fallen.  It’s back on again this weekend of course.  Who will be for the drop this time?

We don’t know but less of our money is on Ainsley and more on Jay  ex-out of The Wanted.  We would like to point out that the pictures above are in no particular order!

Strictly Come Dancing – yes there’s more – sets off on its incredible ‘journey’ this Friday with a new cast of sequined and lycra-ed contestants.  See above captured by Ray Burmiston in all their hyper coloured glory.

Boyle whose extraordinary list of achievements includes Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and the opening of the 2012 London Olympics gave a typically down to earth but brilliant interview to coincide with the photoshoot, covering the whole of his career from the first film he ever saw to his up-coming bio-pic of the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

The final of  The Voice UK  took place on Saturday and the winner’s single came out on Monday so each of the finalists had a single cover ready to go all shot by our Ray Burmiston.  Chosen by the public, the finalists were Stevie McCrorie, Lucy O’Byrne, Emmanuel Nwamadi and Sahsa Simon.

Three judges Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and Will.i.am all had contestants in the final but not Rita Ora who was left ‘shame faced and devastated,’ that her first year on the panel ended without one of her acts in the grand finale.

The chosen track ‘Lost Stars’, was originally performed by The Voice US coach, Adam Levin, and the track was recently nominated for Best Original Song at the 2015 OSCARs where it was performed by the Maroon 5 front man to an American audience of over 36 million people. Proceeds from the single will go towards the BBC’s Performing Arts Fund, a BBC charity created to support and encourage the performing arts sector across the UK.

Stevie McCrorie walked away the winner and his shot by Ray was used on the cover of the winning single!

Ray shoots Billy Idol for Event MagazineBilly Idol by Ray BurmistonRay Burmiston for Event Magazine

Ray Burmiston recently photographed rock music legend Billy Idol for his interview with Event Magazine.  Idol spoke to the magazine about his recent performances, upcoming album, and the difficulty of writing an autobiography.

‘I had to look at myself dispassionately at times and confront addiction and my various demons. I really thought I was indestructible. When punk rock proclaimed, “There is no future”, I took that pretty seriously.’

The new album, Kings and Queens of the Underground, is set for release on the 20th of October.  Idol’s memoir, Dancing With Myself  is available here.

Of the dresses, Christina said “I enjoy this dress because I’m quite a woman of soft curves and I love these sharp little angles on me that contrast who I am.”

Rebecca previously shot a Vivienne Westwood dress for this couture fashion story.

Richard Attenborough 2000

‘I remember it as being one of the nicest photo shoots ever.  Richard Attenborough was a delightful man, he was concerned, warm, did everything we asked of him, told brilliant stories with casts of the ultra famous, charmed the pants off everyone concerned, called me darling and left after forty minutes in a haze of profuse apologies because he had to go to lunch.  I only met him once and not for long but it’s something I will always remember and be proud of.’  Paul Rider

RB_DrW-blogAs anticipation grows around the 50th anniversary, we are very excited to reveal these images from the new series of Dr Who by Ray Burmiston.

Starring Matt Smith and his latest companion, Jenna-Louise Coleman, Ray captured the duo for a hectic day at one of the final shoots in the famous B609 photographic studio deep in the basement of BBC TV Centre.

“It was actually a really exciting way to work, that of being put on the spot and having to represent the concept and dynamic for each episode from little strands of information regarding each of the story lines.

Refreshingly different from the way that most shoots are done” – Ray Burmiston
