AOP Photography Awards

Sunbeam is delighted to welcome back the AOP Photography Awards. For the second year we have curated a show of some of our favourite images from the prestigious awards show. This year we picked the theme of New World Order. We feel this selection of images together hold a mirror to the current social justice climate reflecting in part our sustainability values.  The show invokes memories of Choose Your Own Adventure novels by torchlight along with influences such as the 2015 election, Cloud Atlas, Mad Max and the tumult in the Ukraine ultimately offering a glimpse of the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come.

We invite you to get in touch with us at studio@sunbeamstudios.com if you’re interested in attending our Private View.31PAF_17880S_54109

Kensington & Chelsea Foundation Event

We were pleased to host recently a reception for the excellent K&C Foundation, a very worthwhile organisation that helps small local charities that might otherwise be overlooked to get funding and really make a difference to the borough’s residents. All too often the bigger national or international charities get people’s attention, so this was a great opportunity to refocus on our local community and its needs.

You can explore their work more here: http://www.thekandcfoundation.com

‘Thank you so much for all your help and support last night. We are really pleased with how the event went and can’t think of a better venue. Everyone absolutely loved the space and were so surprised by what they found inside. It was a brilliant opportunity for us to get our supporters together with some of the charities that we help….Please pass on our thanks to the rest of your team who were all so helpful and friendly. I think you run a very impressive organisation.’

Liberty Ross for The Outnet

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.

U2

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.

Arrive in style

Having your wedding at Sunbeam Studios is choosing to be in an historic building with a rich and exciting history.

Why not submerge yourself further into that history by arriving at your wedding in a unique classic car that was built at the very venue you are getting married in.

As the former Sunbeam-Talbot automobile works we can arrange the hire of two original Talbot cars manufactured here in the 1930′s for your big day. The car pictured here, a 1934 Talbot saloon has been completely restored including the finest burgundy-coloured Connolly leather and Wilton carpeting returning the car to its original standard of exceptional British luxury and comfort. Contact our events team to find out more.
