The GQ Style team were back in the BPS studio earlier this autumn — this time to shoot a cover story by Kai Z Feng, featuring Hao Yunxiang on the cover.
BPS was delighted to again work with fashion retailer SELECTED for a new seasonal catalogue. This time the team asked us to set up a product shoot, complimenting the fashion story photography done by Rasmus Skousen with models in the US.
Product photographer: Ben McMillan
Models photographer: Rasmus Skousen

Beijing shoot set build, photography equipment, and assistants: Beijing Photospace
Catalogue layout management: Sasha Alderson at BPS
BPS client SELECTED just brought out its Autumn 2011 catalogue, featuring product shots taken by Ben McMillan at our studio. BPS Production Manager Sasha Alderson organized sets and sourced props for the shoot and handled layout design. The sets were designed to match the feel of an on-model shoot in LA with high profile model, Tony Ward.
Vogue China called us in to find the perfect location for a romantic garden story featuring actress Maggie Q. Conde Nast brought in Dan Jackson and stylist Tiina Laakkonen from New York for the editorial.
BPS again worked with top fashion photographer KT Auleta this summer on a Vogue China feature, ‘Movers & Shakers of Chinese Fashion’. It was great to work with KT and her team.
A core role for BPS is our expertise in locations and we’re busier than ever helping clients find the right fit for their shoot. So people can quickly see options we’ve put up a new location board, ranging from iconic settings like The Great Wall to places you would never guess are in China! It’s a snapshot of our fast-growing portfolio and we really hope it’s useful! Check the new boards out on our Production page here
The new August edition of Vogue China is out featuring a five page Tom Ford editorial, entitled ‘Mr. Ford’, in which BPS provided lighting, set build and assistants. The legendary US designer is interviewed alongside a shoot featuring five ‘it’ lades from China’s elite social scene. Tom took the shots and then appears in the images alongside the ladies, shooting with a remote cable release.
BPS Director Ben McMillan was lucky enough to work directly with Tom and his long-term assistant Simon Perry, handling lighting for the technically tricky semi-self portrait shoot. The BPS team also provided set build based on Tom’s specific directions and sourced props. Great fun!
