Katie has a very ‘holistic’ approach to her work.  It is understandable as her CV includes both design and food blogging, as well as photography. As you can see from the behind the scenes pictures, she also art directed and styled all the images for the campaign.

Ray Burmiston has been hard at work shooting these very fine images of this year’s crop of X Factor hopefuls for Simon Cowell’s Syco TV, the show’s producers.

Pictured here in ‘no particular order’ but starting at the top left are Honey G, Bradley and Ottavio, 5 AM, Matt, Gifty and Emily who all hope to be warbling their way to stardom in the coming weeks.

Honey G is the ‘star’ of the show.  She has caused controversy since landing a place on the live finals mainly because no one can believe she is really is a rapper from the mean streets of ‘North Weezy’, or Harrow as it is more generally known, and is actually serious.

And now X Factor fans have claimed the show is a ‘fix’ after it was revealed that Honey G has been lined up for a personal appearance in Scotland, the same night as the Saturday night stalwart’s finale.

The opinion dividing rapper has been ‘confirmed’ to appear at a Kirkcaldy nightclub, Kitty’s & Kandy, on December 10th – the exact night the final four contestants will perform for the judges.

But apparently it’s ok because the club have only got her on a pencil, so if she’s still in the competition they will rearrange.  Good to see the good folk of Kirkcaldy being so forward looking and that Honey G’s post X Factor career is getting off to a flying start.

The Cronut lands in London.  Dominque Ansel, baker extraordinaire and the inventor of the Cronut, a delicious cross of croissant and doughnut, opened his London bakery last week and Scott Grummett was there to record the event. Dominique already has New York and Tokyo sites, and such is his fame among the cake cognoscente that hundreds queued, some from as early as five am, for the opening.

London highlights (see above) include the Banoffee Paella, “After The Rain” Mousse Cake (with flavours of pear, ginger, and jasmine, jasmine “raindrops” gelée and praliné feuilletine base), Salted Honey Tart, Eton Mess Lunchbox, and the Welsh Rarebit Croissant.

As something of a lover of the Burger in all its forms, Scott Grummett was excited to be invited to shoot some Byron Burgers. Along with their beef regulars they are also now offering some chicken specials too including the Clucky Balboa (see below) to take on their bovine counterparts. And there are of course, some incredible over the top and magnificently messy milkshakes to boot.

Last week Scott Grummett was back with one of his regular clients, All Star Lanes, tasked with shooting Sean Soon, head of all things bar related and mixologist supreme, making some of their brand new cocktails.

As Scott puts it, ‘I strapped on the macro lens and got into the details of Sean’s process, aiming to capture some of the drama around his creations.’

Job done.

The bakers Warburtons asked Scott Grummett to photograph some mega-sandwiches for the launch of their new improved Warburtons Thins range.

Scott has had to wait a while for the campaign to take off.  “As far back as January I was invited by Mr Jonathan Warburton to give his Thins and Thins bagels a fresh, tasty and appetising approach in a series of adverts and instore images. We wanted to stay true to the product but inspire mild levels of gluttony and a real sense of hunger.

What are you having for lunch?”

Jay Brooks was commissioned to picture Nadiya Hussain, the super bright – in every sense – winner of 2015’s Great British Bake Off, for the cover of You magazine.

JB-NadiyaHblog-2 JB-NadiyaHblog-3

Since winning Bake Off, the extraordinary Nadiya has had the most incredible year.  So remarkable in fact that the Daily Telegraph chose to list her achievements under the title ’10 Inspiring Things Nadiya Hussain has done since winning GBBO.  And here they are:

1 Written a cookbook.  And it’s not all cakes, it has Asian savouries too!

2 Written a children’s cookbook.  It features stories and child friendly recipes and is dedicated to Nadiya’s three children, Musa, Dawud and Maryam.  It features photographs of them throughout, is generally rather lovely by all accounts and is out soon.

3 Spoken out about racism.  Her comments about how she had come to “expect” racism highlighted just how horrifically ingrained such experiences can become. But she also displayed moving resilience, and a determination to focus on the positive.

“I don’t retaliate. I feel like there’s a dignity in silence, and I feel that if I retaliate to negativity with negativity then we’ve evened out,” she explained. “And I don’t need to even that out, because if somebody’s being negative I need to be the better person.”

4 Landed her own TV show.  New two part series The Chronicles of Nadiya starts tonight on BBC One, and will follow the Bake Off winner as she travels to Bangladesh, where her parents were born and where large parts of her extended family still reside. Part cookery show, part travel diary, Chronicles will see Nadiya travel to her family’s village and cook for a relative’s wedding feast.

5 She’s a magazine columnist.  She’s writing for The Times Magazine and is planning to revive the swiss roll!

6 She’s been reunited with the woman who taught her to bake.  Her secondary school home economics teacher Jean Marshall who got her “hooked” on baking, sparking a passion for traditional British puddings and sponges.

7 She’s baked a birthday cake for the Queen.

8 She’s been named as one of the most influential people in Britain by Debretts.

9 She’s getting remarried so that she can have a party – her first wedding in Bangladesh wasn’t a lot of fun

10  And she’s moving to Milton Keynes!  (Not entirely sure that is really inspiring)

And she has been on Desert Island Discs.

Quite a year!

 

Lurpak invited Scott Grummett to shoot their latest campaign focusing on the simplicity and naturalness of butter.SG-LURPAK-blog3SG-LURPAK-blog1SG-LURPAK-blog4SG-LURPAK-blog2

But what can you say about butter?  It’s lovely on fresh bread, it’s the making of toast and without it jacket potatoes are not edible are three things you can say.  Another thing is, as the Lurpak campaign says, that it never has more than three ingredients and they are all natural.

Katie Quinn Davies was commissioned by Tried and True Design in New Zealand to shoot for the packaging for the new range from the Christchurch based United Fish Company.

 

The Slide The Slide

Jay Brooks created the joyously hair raising images for the campaign to promote The Slide, the new thrill ride at the Orbit tower at the QE Olympic Park.  It is the ultimate helter-skelter twisting and turning around the tower,  dropping 178 meters in 40 seconds.  Time Out has already named it as their number one thing to do this year!

Here’s some more stuff about The Slide:

What to expect

Visitors will descend the world’s highest and, at 178m, the world’s longest tunnel slide, as they travel down the UK’s tallest public artwork, they’ll pass through light and dark sections with London’s dramatic skyscape whizzing by!

In the 40-second trip, visitors will circle around the ArcelorMittal Orbit 12 times as they weave their way through the famous loops and curves of the iconic structure, including a tight corkscrew section names the ‘bettfeder’ – after the German word for ‘bedspring’ – and end with a 50m straight run back down to earth!

Ride again!

The ArcelorMittal Orbit has been enthralling visitors since the London 2012 Games with it’s spectacular views of the London skyline and we know that you’ll love the new hair-raising slide experience so much that you’ll want to relive it, and you can! For just an additional £5 you can head straight back to the top and calm your nerves with the spectacular London skyline, before taking position and riding the slide once again! To be sure of your repeat descent, you can book an extra slide in advance once you’ve bought your initial combined ticket by calling 0333 800 8099 with your booking reference number.

About the design

The Slide was created by Belgian artist Carsten Höller at the invitation of Sir Anish Kapoor, designer of the ArcelorMittal Orbit. It is a unique collaboration between two of the world’s leading artists and a major new art installation for London, as well as yet another reason to visit Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – fast becoming London’s most exciting playground!

TBWA commissioned Liam Arthur to shoot this sensitive campaign on coping with illness for one of the agency’s major international pharmaceutical clients.

Ray Burmiston shot Euros behind the scenes at the BBC’s extravagant ‘Les Mis’ style shoot for the trailer to publicise the coverage of the Euros 2016 Championship in France.

As we said in a previous post, the shoot took place in the Painted Hall of the Royal Naval College at Greenwich, which with its gold and mural encrusted walls provided a suitably opulent background.  A dozen presenters, including Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand and Thierry Henry, and around one hundred of extras were all clad in period costume featuring fabulous frocks, powdered wigs and acres of brocade.

It was major feat for the costume and hair make up departments to create so many different looks.  Though some of them may not have been completely based on history. ‘Have you seen the lady the pink and blue wig?  She looks like a lollipop,” asked head make-up designer Wakana Yoshihara. “That was my inspiration!’

Ferrari Magazine (TOFM) flew Pip and crew to Valencia to shoot the fashion story for their spring edition.  They were drawn there by the location, the dramatic Palau de les Arts Reina Sofia, a cultural centre opened in 2005, which gives the shoot its futuristic backdrop.

The styling,  including pieces from Ferrari’s own range, was by Jess Punter with hair and make up by Annabel McCrory.  The models were Alissandre Martines at Milk Management and David Pascual from Mad Models in Madrid.  The shoot was overseen and art directed by Official Ferrari Magazine creative director Warren Jackson and the all important car is a California T.
