In June 2011 Lee was commissioned by Industria magazine to photograph a portrait session with British rapper and TV presenter Tinie Tempah.
Thinking back Lee says 'the start of this shoot wasnt going too well, with a rather busy PR person getting in the way and even threatening to cancel the shoot before we got going! I had a quiet moment with Tinie, we shared a few English stories, where we grew up etc and we seemed to bond, i had his trust and from then on the shoot went smoothly. Thank you Tinie! You were awesome.'
Another portrait of Tinie from the session can be found here.
The shoot took place in a photography studio in Brooklyn, NYC and was captured using a Canon EOS5D MKii with Adobe Photoshop used for post production.
