And just like that, 2017 is gone. I can still remember vividly every key moment of my work on Cuts for Him like it just happened. From my trips to the middle east to having a key meeting with one of my favorite grooming brand, Elemis. The sketches I make before a shoot, to waiting for the golden hour to shoot the perfect pictures. Oh, the memories. 2017 was a great year for Cuts for Him. I may need a couple of months to properly label 2017 but I know for sure that it was a key year in the life of Cuts for Him. A year of creative expansion and opened opportunities. Opportunities to work with bigger brands and better creatives.
To help me articulate, here are photos of key work and places I went to in 2017:
The above shot was taken for a piece I did on identity. The piece itself is called Cultured in Culture and can be found here if you fancy reading it. One of my most personal pieces.
Like the first photo, this one just above is a personal one. In fact, it started the Cultured in Culture series. This series looks at being born in one culture but growing up in another. The crossroads these cultures brought into my life. Have a read here.

So over the summer, I was able to secure what I used to call a notepad. In fact, I am absolutely sure everyone else including the brand manufacturers (Eddie Handmade) calls it a notepad. And you must be saying to yourself why would I call it anything else, right?
First of all, it is important to recognize the impact this rather “minor” accessory has made in my creative life. As a content creator, I always document in the form writing or other means the process of capturing images both still and videos before implementation. Imagine sitting up at night writing down steps and processes for a shoot the next day so you can go out there and just execute flawlessly. It’s a beautiful feeling when I am able to execute dues to planning especially when managing clients expectations combined with other creatives such as photographers, stylists, makeup artists etc.
