At just 22-years-old, London-based photographer Pip has already worked with some of the biggest and best music labels around. They include Atlantic Records, Mercury Records, Columbia/Sony BMG, and Universal Music among others. What makes his work stand out from the crowd is that he finds an artistic way to capture his musicians’ personalities. You can tell that he puts a lot of thought into each one of his photos, carefully planning and choosing a backdrop that he thinks makes the most sense for these bands or solo artists. Whether it’s a lone rock in the middle of a vast ocean or golden wheat fields that look like something out of a surreal dream, Pip has a way of not only making us feel connected to these new and emerging artists, he makes us appreciate the art of modern-day music photography.
It’s hard to believe that Pip started photographing only four years ago. When asked how he would describe his own style, here is what Pip told us, “Essentially I love to photograph people. Professionally this takes form in my music and fashion work, but personally I also enjoy documenting people that I’m surrounded by. My style is generally quite story-based. I like photographs with depth; imagery that raises questions and provokes thought. Visually I’m a lover of big cinematic moments.”
Outside of music, Pip also enjoys shooting fashion photography and has worked with INDIE magazine, Sport & Street and FHM.
