Money-can’t-buy gifts don’t often come up for sale – but we’ve found one that is sure to fly straight to the top of everyone’s Christmas list.

If you’ve ever wondered how it’d feel to get the kind of star treatment experienced by the likes of Kate Moss, Cara Delavigne and Kylie, now’s your chance to find out.

The Rankin photoshoot

Celeb photographer Rankin, the most famous – and probably best – popular photographer in the world today – is offering a photo shoot at the world-famous Rankin Studios in North London, where you’ll get the full Rolls Royce treatment.

Walk down corridors lined with stunning shots of top models and stars and be transformed by two makeup artists while 15 assistants get ready for your shoot in the studio next door. They’ll set the lights, backdrops and cameras to capture you at your absolute best.

Rankin will arrive on set just before the shoot – he’s a master at putting his models at ease and will chat easily with you while snapping away for the perfect shots.

It’d be impossible not to feel absolutely fabulous over the course of the experience – you’re the star and everyone is there to make you look and feel your best, whether you’re celebrating a pregnancy, an anniversary or just life itself.

After the shoot, a team of professionals will retouch the images to make them look exactly how Rankin wants them.

How to get it

Unfortunately, this extraordinary experience doesn’t come cheap: you’ll need £10,000 to bag your day with Rankin and all the glitz and glamour that go with it.

The money will go to a crowdfunding campaign to launch a photographic exhibition and book celebrating the work of family farmers around the world.

Through We Feed the World, a body of world-renowned photographers will take portraits of the farmers who are responsible for feeding 70% of the global population.

Picture of sustainability

Award-winning British photographers Marcus Bleasdale and Jane Hilton, Magnum photographers Alec Soth, Jim Goldberg and Alessandra Sanguinetti, celebrated Brazilian photojournalist Sebastaio Selgado and, or course, Rankin, are just some of the star photographers brought together for the project by Cheryl Newman, ex-picture editor of the Daily Telegraph Magazine.

Each of the photographers will take portraits of farmers in a country they are familiar with – where they were born, live or work. The goal is to showcase the positive impact sustainable agriculture has on our health, environment, culture and society.

‘We Feed the World is an amazing opportunity for everyone in this country to engage with a healthier, more climate-friendly and more democratic food system. We have to speak out against the giant monopolies and government policies that are currently trying to dominate the food that we eat.

‘Farmers must come before Profit! The Earth is not dispensable! Lets use the power of social media to share this campaign with as many people as we can and start a revolution in our food supply.’
