Uli Weber – Goodwood Revival

Following on from the success of his book “Portraits”, a 20 year retrospective of his celebrity portraiture that features the likes of Daniel Radcliffe, Sting, Bruce Willis and Kylie Minogue, Uli Weber has now turned his lens to the magic of the Goodwood Revival.

The Goodwood Revival Exhibition private view fundraiser was held in Sunbeam Studio’s grand Talbot Hall, a magical step back in time, as seen through a selection of images from Uli’s book. This show was in aid of Second Chance, a charity offering help to children from disadvantaged backgrounds or with histories of abuse with all profits stemming from the show going to the charity.

For more info please visit : www.second-chance.org.uk

Every year Goodwood stages a highly competitive race meeting featuring the kind of cars and motorcycles that would have been at this historic circuit during the period of 1948-1966.  It offers visitors the opportunity to leave the “modern world” behind and see motor sport luminaries such as Sir Stirling Moss, Nick Mason, John Surtees, Jean Alesi and Sir Jackie Stewart racing.

Sunbeam was proud to host such a beautiful and appropriate show, bringing cars back into this former car showroom.

‘Thank you Sunbeam Studios for allowing us to exhibit in such a spectacular space, Ladbroke Hall being one of the fist purpose built car factories in Britain.’ Uli Weber

The exhibition continues in our reception gallery until the end of March

A short film for Loquet London by Academy award winning director Alfonso Cuarón

The minute-and-a-half-long fashion film for boutique fine jewellery brand Loquet features among others model-actress Gala Gordon, entrepreneur and art director Ooooota Adepo, Game of Thrones’s Nathalie Emmanuel, and the young daughters of Sheherazade Goldsmith and Cuarón. Shot in an elaborate split-screen sequence it required multiple “clapping choreographers” and precise synchronisation and the editing took about six months. “It was a bit of a Rubik’s Cube,” explains the director, who enlisted the same crew he has used for such films as Gravity and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. “If you pay attention to all of the different frames, it’s quite easy to get lost.”

New World Orders – A Sunbeam curation of the 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.
