Shooting Stars: Behind the scenes at Ealing Studios

June 4July 11

In a new outdoor exhibition, Gunnersbury Park Museum celebrates the life and work of Ealing Studios stills photographer Roy Gough.

Roy Gough’s archive was donated to Gunnersbury Park Museum in 2016, after the death of Roy’s wife, Beryl Booth. Both long-time Ealing residents, Roy and Beryl worked for decades in film and television – Roy as a Stills Photographer and Beryl as a Continuity Girl.

A Stills Photographer had the important role of photographing film sets, studio shoots or portraits that could be used to create the press and publicity for up-and-coming films. Many of the photographs that Roy Gough took at Ealing Studios were included on film posters, billboards, and other promotional materials.

In 2020, Gunnersbury Park Museum was granted funding to work with this unique and valuable collection. Throughout the project the museum has worked to repackage, digitise and catalogue Roy’s photographs and make them available online.

This exhibition showcases some favourites from the 2000+ prints we hold in Gunnersbury Park Museum’s Archive and explores Roy Gough’s career at Ealing Studios and beyond.

The exhibition is free to visit, and will be open every week, 7am – dusk. It is located by the Round Pond
