Gotta tell ya, a week ago I would have been just too damn shy to waltz into a busy barber shop in the middle of the day and ask to snap a photo of everyone. I’ve been pining a photo of this neighbourhood barber shop for the past year but never had the courage to just go in and ask. But today that’s just what I did. I had a really successful morning of shooting people and storefronts for Local magazine and thought, what the hell. They all got a kick out of it and happily posed. I actually had to ask them not to pose so I could get one of the barber just working away. In the end, I like the posed shot best. And since this barber shop has been here for decades I thought it only fitting to do a black & white treatment.
I think after all these years I’ve finally figured out what I want to do with my life. This past week has been very hectic but one of the most enjoyable in years. I’ll post more photos from my various shoots in the coming days and weeks.
