Shoulder up portrait of Luke Whittall leaning on a wooden bar with a glass of red wine in hand and a bottle resting on the counter. Luke is a white man with short cropped brown hair, he is wearing thin wire glasses, a chunky ring on his right hand, and a burgundy red oxford shirt with the first button undone. His head is slightly tilted down as he looks directly into the camera without smiling. Photo credit: Jen Jensen.
