Kazu Suwa, please remember me when you’re famous

You know the feeling you get when you meet someone who is not only super nice, but also super talented? The joy of knowing you’re not stuck with the task of entertaining the Loch Ness Monster, and that you might actually enjoy the day? That’s exactly the feeling the first time you meet Kazu Suwa. He’s a classical guitarist here in London, and if you don’t believe me when I say he’s ridiculously talented then you only need watch this:

We made that video with Kazu. He found that quaint little room over in Crystal Palace and he spent a couple of hours with our Creative One (of PIP PIX fame) and they put together that video for his YouTube channel. We’ve been working with Kazu for a while now. He makes a valiant effort to teach classical guitar to the boss, and we ensure to give him gorgeous, creative artwork to make up for it.

For example, late last year Kazu needed new photos in order to spruce up his website. These days it’s so important that your website is visually appealing. Especially as a musician, people want to see you and get to know you as a person, rather than just as an mp3. So we set up a shoot in Greenwich, and here are just a few of the images we ended up with:

London is my Valentine

Sometimes over the Summer months we get bored. Everyone has gone away on holiday, and sitting in an office full of machinery and printing can leave you hot and sticky in all the wrong places. So we threw the creative one out onto the streets and told him to come back with something pretty. And so PIP PIX was born. We ended up with thousands of beautiful photographs, starting with Mayfair and Marylebone but gradually we managed to cover most of Westminster and even some other corners of London.

With so many gorgeous photos, it would be a shame not to use them. Being the generous creatures we are, we stuck them all up on our Flickr account. They’re totally free for anyone to use when they indulge in some print or marketing with PIP Mayfair or Marylebone. So I’ve decided to put together a collection of my top ten PIP PIX. I’ll probably have a new top ten by next week, but at the moment these are really floating my boat.

What’s not to love about this? Clouds, sky, water, big circular tourist attraction. All the good stuff. Continue reading
