The Winter Olympics is fast approaching and one of the biggest sports featured is Ice Hockey. The top players are huge celebrities both in their home countries as well as the countries of the league teams for which they play…basically move over football!

This years Mercury Music Prize Award winner James Blake, is NOT to be confused with James Blunt ( tut tut Lauren Lavern ) …

Luke first met Simon Costin a couple of years back, when Simon invited him to shoot his collection of masks…of which there were hundreds!

For Hole & Corner, Luke shot a portrait of Simon and also around Simons home which is packed full of weird and wonderful ephemera. As the article says, Simon has enough Folklore art start a museum, which is exactly what Simon has done, founding the Museum of British Folklore.

Celebrating all things British is a passion that both Luke and Simon seem to share, and long may it continue!


Santa's Grottos

Ph: Luke Stephenson
Ag: Fallon London

In 2010 Luke set off on one of his many personal projects, this one to capture the many Santa impersonators who don fake beards, & sometimes fake bellies (!), to ho ho ho their way through the UK, in shopping & garden centres alike.

Stepping into the grotto of as many Santas as he could find, Luke photographed them in an honest format to show off who they really are: normal men doing a job.

The project has now gone on show at Londons Fallon agency, along with a rather brilliant slide show, plus a little extra thats still to come …

This huge shoot was the creation of Luke and the wonderful set designer Hana Al Sayed. Using over 400 of John Lewis's products, the team created 2 amazing set builds to depict the JL Guarantee times.

5 Years for TV -, a beautiful display of TV screens, creating the number within our gallery space - and then the more complicated 2 build - using 100's of items from the tiniest iPod Nano, to the largest Range Cooker.

A mix of plinths, suspensio, and clever placement created the form with everything all shot in place, in camera, in one... nice work!
