Nice set of mono portraits with a feel of the 60's to me. The lighting and styling makes me think of James Bond film.

I have no experience of portrait photography, James, and so have no ability to comment productively, but all I would say is that this series I find delightful and to me seem very accomplished. Very well done.
Regards, Ronnie.
