Alex Highton – I Left the City

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Very happy to finally be able to share this music video with you that we helped put together for very talented Alex Highton. Alex Highton’s debut album Woodditton Wives Club is packed full of witty, thoughtful songs. Simple, mellow acoustic guitar melodies paired with Alex’s charming vocals make this album really stand out. We love it and if you do too do yourself a favour and buy his album from his website or iTunes. A big shout out to Joe Marcantonio for helping us put this video together. Sit back and enjoy!

Tim Walker: Story Teller

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Somerset House is currently home to ‘Story Teller’, an exhibition focusing on the wonderful work of fashion photographer Tim Walker. I went at the weekend and loved it. We used some of his images for mood boards in the past. He really is a very talented and inspirational photographer.

Beside his photography on show there is a selection of his large props he used for his imagery including a giant doll, large insects playing instruments, and an almost life-size replica of a Spitfire fighter plane. It’s great being able to see the fantastical props alongside the final images.

The exhibition is beautifully put together and his photography amazing . Tim Walker Story Teller, runs from 18 October – 27 January 2013, daily 10am – 6pm, free admission, at Somerset House, London.

Tim Walker (born in England, 1970) is a British fashion photographer.

Tim Walker’s photographs have entranced the readers of Vogue, month by month, for over a decade. Extravagant staging and romantic motifs characterise his unmistakable style. After concentrating on the photographic still for 15 years, Walker is now also making moving film.
On graduation in 1994, Walker worked as a freelance photography assistant in London before moving to New York City as a full time assistant to Richard Avedon. On returning to England, he initially concentrated on portrait and documentary work for UK newspapers. At the age of 25, he shot his first fashion story for Vogue and has continued to work to much acclaim ever since.
The Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Portrait Gallery in London include the photographs of Tim Walker in their permanent collections.
