Just found these pictures photographer Jack Symes shot behind the scenes at a Sserpress video shoot here last Summer. I really loved director Gabriel Pryce's stripped back, simple set. The chimp on toilet with cigar poster was a nice touch.

Directors Sam Renwick and Thomas Bryant were in the studio shooting this earlier in the month.

Dazed Digital premiered the film online on Friday and did a  little write up too, which you can read by clicking here!

Gabriel Green shot this Wavves cover feature for Loud And Quiet last summer. It was one of the last shoots at the old studio, and I love that these photos show it a bit more like a location. I also love that it's Wavves, because they're wicked. Below is the cover and a couple of spreads from the magazine, and also a couple of Gabriel's unpublished photos.

Back Yard Recordings have been using the studio for lots of their artists' photo shoots and video shoots over the years. Art director and illustrator Jayne Helliwell shot a couple of those videos, including this one for Hounds Of Hate. Jayne was tragically killed last year in a road accident. She is a dearly missed friend.

Here are a few tear-sheets from another of my fave Vice shoots. This one was shot by photographer David Titlow and styled by Mischa Notcutt. Vice Editor-in-Chief and overlord-in-general Andy Capper was in attendance on this one advising on the finer nuances of Riot Grrl. Big <3 to Andy not only for this, but also for his huge support for the studio over the last couple of years.

A couple of years ago, XL Recordings came over with The xx to shoot their video for Crystalised. Directed by Alex Flick and Masato Riesser and art directed by Arthur De Borman, the video has currently had over 12 million Youtube views and counting. It was also one of the nicest shoots ever with a lovely team, amazing band, and a celebratory Tayyabs afterwards (thanks Caius)!

Over the past couple of years, Vice have been been shooting here pretty regularly. Below are a couple of my favourite shoots from the old Whitechapel studio. Both were shot by photographer Claudia Grassl, art directed by Tabitha Denholm and styled by Aldene Johnson. Aldene is currently flying all over the world styling the incredible Florence And The Machine, and Tabitha has co-directed a few of Florence's videos, alongside photographer Tom Beard. Tom also shot the additional landscape photography for the All At Sea story.
