GRAHAM RYE - Editor 007 MAGAZINE

GRAHAM RYE has been the driving force behind 007 MAGAZINE for over 25 years, and his fascination with the James Bond character began at the tender age of 11 when his father took him to see the first 007 film Dr. No on its original theatrical release in 1962. In 1964, with the release of the third Bond film, Goldfinger, he read Ian Fleming’s novels for the first time – and his interest in ‘all things Bond’ has persisted ever since.

After amassing myriad material over three decades during a career in design and photography, Rye opened 007 MAGAZINE & ARCHIVE as a commercial business in 1988. The following year he authored and designed the official book The James Bond Girls, which was successfully updated and reprinted for a decade. As one might imagine, after 45 years immersed in the world of James Bond, his knowledge of the subject is second to none.

On August 1st 2006, Rye launched the new 007 MAGAZINE OnLine in the subscribers’ area of the 007 MAGAZINE website, where Bond enthusiasts around the world can now gain access to literally everything anyone could ever want to see or read about their favourite secret agent – and all for less than .007 pence a day!

With the theatrical release of the 24th James Bond film SPECTRE starring Daniel Craig on 26th October 2015, the future looks set to continue as hectic as ever for Rye, with TV & Radio interviews and print media enquiries relating to the latest 007 actor and the classic retrospective Bonds – plus ongoing creative and archival content for the subscribers’ area of the 007 MAGAZINE website.

With Graham Rye at its creative head, 007 MAGAZINE & Archive has become THE definitive worldwide focal point for all enquiries relating to the James Bond phenomenon, providing the ultimate organisation for James Bond enthusiasts worldwide, and a unique picture agency and information centre for the world’s media.

Nobody does it better!
