Pip the Gentleman

Just had a quick shoot with ‘Pip the Gentleman’ and wanted to share the results. Pip has quite a unique look about him and has a range of quality suits that make him stand out from the crowd. He is also heavily tattooed so offers a range of opportunities. The lighting set-up was fairly simple…
