The Top Boy shoot by Richard Pier Petit is wonderfully moody.

Pier Petit captured model/D.J. James in his first ever photo shoot for online publication TheOnes2Watch. Pier Petit masterfully uses lighting to create a crisp contrast and evoke the emotional complexity of the model's expression.

James has a refreshingly soft look. His big bright eyes and smooth jaw line give him extra depth and persona. Besides being well done on an artistic and technical level, the photos also showcase fun takes on everyday wearables. Clashing textures combine with the model's tattoos to give the whole theme of the shoot an extra kick.
