Portrait of my Barber

Dom Campana is a man's man. When you walk into his Hairdressers, as I have been doing every month for the past 15 years, he's always bent over a customer with scissors in hand, engaged in lively conversation with a smile on his face. Most of the clientele he knows by name, and it's due to this friendly demeanor and his skill with the shears that almost everyone in there is a regular. When I asked him to pose for a portrait, he was more than happy to oblige:


This portrait was lit with two softboxes at 45 degrees behind the subject, camera left and right, and a gridded beauty dish directly in front and above him. If you're the owner or manager of a small business, I'd love to hear from you - get in touch by email at ravphotography@live.co.uk, through the facebook page, or by using the contact page
