The Groomed Man was established in 2011, their mission is to “Provide a one stop shop for all your traditional shaving and beard care needs”. The Groomed Man is the brainchild of Denise Peasgood and I was asked to photograph their top selling products in a retro style and also to show their products being used by men with quite spectacular beards!
The shoot took place at a thatched cottage in Kilsby. Packed with character, it was the perfect location for the shoot and we took full advantage of the grounds. Plus, their wonderful Bull Mastif, Bella, was more than happy to model for me.
For those that don’t know, The Beard Club was founded in Rugby for Gentlemen and Ladies who appreciate the beard. Denise Peasgood ran a competition in The Beard Club to find handsome bearded chaps who could model for The Groomed Man. A big thank you to the winners (and models) including, Luke Phillips, Graham Smith and Stephen L Williams.
Some of the products that our bearded models used included ………….
The Groomed Man beard combs are all made from animal horn as this reduces static in the beard. Check out Denise’s blog which tells you the whole story.
I would like to extend my thanks to Denise Peasgood at The Groomed Man, thanks to Sarah & Clive Thompson, owners of web design company Itsezze for the use of their wonderful cottage and to Malcom Freeman at Oxygen Design for the website and promotional material design for The Groomed Man.
