I’m all about helping my friends out with their passion so I offered to help him get started with his blog by taking some before and after photos of his clients this past weekend.  There’s never a dull moment with Frank.  Also, it’s really interesting to meet new people who are very much different from each other.

Client #1:

Lives in a very Jewish Williamsburg community and pursuing his PhD in psychology.  He wants to be a therapist.  He wants to interpret dreams.  I’ve told him a few of my dreams to test him out and he really does know what he’s talking about.  No, really.  He’s a fellow Binghamton University alum except he breezed by with a 4.0 GPA and made it look easy.  You should give him a try before he starts charging for his services!

Other fun facts: really laid back, loves soccer, and sets his living room climate control to broil (maybe that’s how he stays to skinny!)

Client #2:

He and Frank go way back to junior high school.  It was my first time meeting his client/friend.  Cool guy and really down to earth.  He rescued his dog as a puppy when he found him in a dumpster.  His name isn’t Stitch for no reason.  Stitch was used as a punching bag by pitbulls.  His stitches run from his back all the way down to his front right leg.  I also noticed his right ear was torn.  When petting him, I can tell he was still traumatized from his past experiences.  I think I’d rather save a dog if I ever decide to get one.

I didn’t have a lot of time to get to know him because I was too busy successfully finding macarons from an Almondine Bakery in Park Slope.  I found their vanilla, coffee and pistachio flavored macarons to be the best.

Frank always dedicated time to hone his skills even as a full-time student.  He has been cutting hair way before I met him and I think he has come a long way in terms of skill.  Admittedly, I don’t know anything about the art of hair cutting but I definitely noticed consistently improved results and speed.  I am really happy to learn that he will be pursuing the next step towards becoming a professional barber/groomer.  He has big plans and a big heart.  The blog post title reads “Brooklyn Groomer” but I know you’ll be all over the world one day.  I’m glad to have been able to help him out especially since he has helped me out on numerous shoots already.  I hope I know you will succeed!  Go hard or go home.  It’s what you always tell me.

Here are some more photos from that day:
