I did these photos at the Atwood Barber Shop for the Madison Magazine. I loved it. I loved all the minutes I was there. You should get your hairs cut there. I walk by the barber shop some and most days. It’s on the way to my coffee shop office where I do the clicks. I always would think someone should have me take photos there. I told the Madison Magazine my plan and they said. Yes. ok. Do it. I was stoked.
There are 4 barbers there. Terry, AJ, Eddie, and Jason. They are all a delight. I think Jason was the least impressed with me being there. and hey. That’s ok too. Terry is very popular. Bus drivers stop to say hi. Delivery drivers stop in. He waves to about 1 out of every 10th person that walks by. And he waves to me now. I like it.
When I was there one day Tory Miller (he’s got those Madison famous restaurants like Graze and Sujo) stopped in to get his hairs cut but left cause it was too busy. I told Josh about this and he told me his barber shop better not fill up with a bunch of damn hipsters now. 🙂
I love the barber shop. Everybody was really nice about letting me take their photo. And they didn’t over photo perform. That’s always the best. There was only one guy who grunted at me when I asked if I could take his photo. I think that meant no. So I didn’t take his photo. No problem.
Andi at the Madison Magazine wrote the words for this piece. She’s amazing. I want her to be at all my shoots.
