Liberty Ross for The Outnet

Posted on Oct 08 In - Fashion, Filming, News, Studio One

The Outnet recently came in to Studio One to shoot a video and produce stills for their recently launched, limited-edition Temperly London range. The 21 piece range features model Liberty Ross and is styled by Alice Temperly. The shoot made great use of the extensive range of props available from Sunbeam Sets and Studio One’s ceiling truss enabled the set team to create the stunning swing shots.

110 Years of Excellence at Sunbeam Studios

Posted on Sep 08 In - Cars, Catering, Events, Exclusive Hire, Fashion, Filming, Garden, History, Music, News, Photography, Production, Shows, Studio Four, Studio One, Studio Three, Studio Two, Suite A, Suite B, Suite C, Suite D, Suite E, Sunbeam's Own

A dozen pre-war Talbot motor cars with a combined age of over 1000 years returned home on Sunday 8th September to where they were made; our building, Ladbroke Hall.

Our building  was the first purpose built car factory and showroom in the UK, opening its doors in 1903 and impressively this year we celebrated the centenary of the 100 miles in 1 hour World Record, set in 1913 by a car built right here at Sunbeam’s Ladbroke Hall. Through this achievement the driver Percy Lambert became the fastest man ever over this distance – on land, sea, or air, for which he earned the status of celebrity and national hero.

With people like Winston Churchill using the building as his experimental warfare establishment in WW1, the famous Kings visit in 1918, and the long line of motoring heroes such as Percy Lambert’s achievements, our building’s history has certainly set a high bar for us to aim for.

Studio 1 showed off our photographic services with a modern studio photo-shoot of a 1933 Talbot AV105 Super Speed Brooklands Tourer, produced by Sunbeam and photographed by Mitch Payne.

Centrefold Magazine – A retrospective selection from 2003-2011

Posted on Sep 11 In - Events, Fashion, Filming, News, Photography, Shows, Studio One, Sunbeam's Own

Sunbeam Studios proudly presents the first in a series of intimate gallery shows at the studios in North Kensington. On the 1st of September 2011, Sunbeam launched a retrospective selection of Centrefold Magazine going back to the inception of the magazine in 2003 as well as including prints from the newest, yet unreleased, edition.

The inaugural installation in Sunbeam’s new show space, curated by Petek Sketcher and Andrew G Hobbs, includes images from KT Auleta, Mario Godlewski, Hans Feurer, Peter Hill, Andrew G. Hobbs, Iain McKell, Albert G. Richards, Clare Shilland, Adam Whitehead, Yelena Yemchuk.

The private view went without a hitch last week! Despite the torrential downpours, we had a great turnout and now we have some fantastic work on our walls. Check out the video below of every Centrefold edition – on the night we projected a giant version over our cove in studio one. Thanks to everyone that came, look out for the next Sunbeam Show!

Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model 2011 on SkyLiving

Posted on Jul 26 In - Exclusive Hire, Fashion, Filming, News, Photography, Studio Four, Studio One, Studio Three, Studio Two, Suite A, Suite B

Having Elle Macpherson back to Sunbeam along with BINTM to put us through our paces was great fun.
They may be promising the feistiest series yet but even 60 fledgling models, 4 judges and a crew of over 30 was no match for our studios!
Because all our studios interconnect the BINTM crew were able to utilise all of the spaces throughout their filming here while keeping judges, crew and models separate and together at all the right times.

We were exhausted just watching them but it was a very successful filming process and we were glad it went so smoothly.
BINTM made us our own special trailer, check it out!

Check out our little ode to Stanley Kubric here. Big thanks to all at Digital Pro!
We thought we’d put together this little film to help show how our studios are interconnected.

Range Rover enVogue

Posted on Nov 03 In - Cars, Fashion, Filming, News, Photography, Studio One

When Vogue asked us if they could drive the brand new Range Rover into our brand new Studio One we were excited. Since Direct Lighting, our partners here at Sunbeam, were doing all the lighting for the shoot we came up with the idea to photograph the week long shoot and create a time lapse video to show here on our new site. Check out the Vogue crew hard at work with their photographer Jason Pietra and set stylist Annette Masterman, along with the crew at Range Rover and Sunbeam.
