This is a composite shot of GB Basketball Captain Drew Sullivan. I contacted him via twitter and he was up for a shoot. A couple of assistants and I drove a couple of hours to meet him where he was running a basketball camp. Originally we were promised an hour so we got there nice and early to set up. He ended up arriving half an hour early and said we only had half an hour!

Even though we weren't completely ready we shot a three light set up on a grey background and got this expression. I then cut it out and put it on a grungy background. Turned out ok :)
