Studio Two became home to rock royalty earlier this year when musical legends U2 came to Sunbeam for their feature in major US title the Hollywood reporter.u2
Taking time out from promoting their upcoming album to meet photographer Joe Pugliese they produce some striking imagery of the band around our studios.

The shoot also made use of the Sunbeam facilities outside of the studio setting as well as inside, as can be seen from these head-shots where our grounds make a great backdrop in these eye-catching black and white images.

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.

Gary Barlow: The Sexy One

Posted on Oct 30 In - Fashion, Garden, Music, News, Photography, Studio One, Studio Three

When Gary Barlow needed the flexibility to have two separate shoots and a breakaway interview space we were happy to help. Studio One housed  The Guardian , who also made great use of the garden for a few shots and a quiet place for the interview. Read the full interview here.

Hamish Brown shot Gary for the Radio Times in our Studio Three, making use of the fantastic period detailing in the room as well as the goal post set up that comes as standard with the space. See their interview here.

We have the X – Factor

Posted on Dec 13 In - Fashion, Music, News, Photography, Studio Four, Studio One, Suite A

With 28 people in shot you need a studio with great capacity, not just for those 28 but for the 50-strong crew that comes with them. Combine that with needing to be top secret and wanting to indulge your clients and crew then there’s really only one place in London to shoot; Our Suite A is just that space.

Combining our Studios 1 and 4 means that you can have a huge shooting space, a great client area, a hair and make up room and an additional space for an extended dressing room or a production office.

The shoot went off without a hitch!

Pringles & Glee Mash Up Party

Posted on Nov 27 In - Events, Music, News, Studio Three, Studio Two, Suite B

To celebrate the release of the Glee Season 1 DVD boxset, Pringles and Fox teamed up to bring a day of Glee mania to 100 competition winners. Sunbeam’s Main Hall was transformed into a high school auditorium, the competition winners were spoilt with singing and dancing lessons as well as American themed food courtesy of Purple Grape. The gleeks got to dress up in lots of fun costumes and at the end of the day Eliza Doolittle hosted the final performances by the gleeks who got to relive their favourite scenes on their very own Glee stage. Everyone went home with glee bags crammed full of goodies and a big smile on their gleek faces.

Record Collection

Mark Ronson has that quality to him that could be the definition of je ne sais quoi and the shoot that Esquire recently did with him has that same feel to it. Great props, great clothes, and gorgeous lighting all alluded to that certain mystery that Ronson seems to carry with him.

Kate Moss & Bryan Ferry get together

Posted on Sep 09 In - Fashion, Music, News, Photography, Studio Two

Bryan Ferry new album

One of the best things about the photographic industry is that every job is a good job. That said, there are some amazing gems where a magic group get together, get creative, and have a great time. Having Adam Whitehead in our Studio Two to shoot the cover of Bryan Ferry’s new cover, was one of these gems. Gracing this cover was none other than the magnificent Kate Moss. The Studio was big enough to house the multiple sets that they brought in but also created an ambiance that could have only added to this glamorous, intimate and decadent shoot.

Nina Ricci Product Launch

Posted on Jul 15 In - Events, Fashion, Music, News, Studio One, Studio Three, Studio Two, Suite E

Nina Ricci’s release of their new perfume was marked with an elegant and sophisticated product launch at Sunbeam Studios in collaboration with Velvet Living. Guests arrived for a canapé and drinks reception in Talbot Hall and moved into our Main Hall for a presentation by a Nina Ricci representative. Guests were then invited into our brand new Rootes Hall for a special performance set to a backdrop of Nina Ricci trademark red apples and a red forest setting. As the first event to take place in the new studio this was a very elegant start to what we’re sure will be an exciting event filled-year in our new space.
