I loved getting to work with stylist and writer, Kerri Bunn, on the June 2015 Men’s Fashion issue of Birmingham Magazine. Kerri and I have worked together before on editorial stories and it’s always a pleasure!
Because this story was about men’s beard grooming, I didn’t want the images to be about the clothes, or eye color, or hair color, but more about the styling and texture of the beards. So, I decided to edit the images as warm tone black and whites.
This was such a fun shoot because the guy models really bought into our vision. We wanted them to play to the camera with their personalities and that’s exactly what they did. We laughed a lot.
It was such a fun surprise that two of the images made it on the cover!
Styling and story by the beautiful and talented, Kerri Bunn.
