This job has been a door that continually opens to opportunities that I don’t deserve, but will always be grateful for. One such opportunity presented itself when I showed interest in Movember.
I was talking with the marketing team at Maurice Lacroix, and they told me that they were thinking of partnering with Movember this year, and if they did, wondered if I had interest in photographing the CEO of Movember, Adam Garone.
… Now this is a situation that scares me sometimes. You see, Adam is, by all research I had done, a cool guy that down to his core is a damn good person. I often worry about this because photoshoots often show me the real person that is my subject and sometimes they are product of great PR, and not so much character. However, I can proudly say that Adam is the real deal, a legit guy that everyone should have a beer with… especially the thousands of men who’s lives have benefited by his cause, Movember.
Beyond the photoshoot, he and I did video interviews (of which you will see soon) to talk about both Maurice Lacroix watches and what Movember meant to us. On camera we kept things serious, but I have to admit, there are more outtakes of us laughing and joking than there is usable footage from the interviews. This probably should not come as a surprise though, for watching the first couple minutes of his Ted Talk will show you that his company began when he and his friends had too many beers.

Nonetheless, he is the example of someone that had talent, an idea and a beer, and with that made the world better.
