About

“The World of Beards” is a passion project I have been photographing since 2010 capturing the progression of the uprising popularity of beard culture.  Inspired by the ornate and outlandish spectacle of characters that make up what beard culture has come to represent, this body of work focuses on the resurgence of facial hair in mainstream culture. 

The World of Beards on display

          I have been competing in beard competitions for over a decade and have been documenting them ever since my first competition back in 2009.  Traveling around the country and World has opened up an immeasurable body of work covering these events and the people who partake.  It has been nearly a decade in the making and narrowing down from tens of thousands of images has been a challenge to say the least.

        I am overwhelmed from the support from everyone contributing and am so excited to make this project a reality!  Thank you so much for your support and I can't wait to share this book with the World!

Risks and challenges

I have already self funded, shot and edited the entire project, now the hard part of funding the publishing is here. Publishing photo books is a costly process and I am looking for you, my friends and support group to invest in a copy of this project to cover the expenses of production and support a hard working artist.
