Clearwater Professional Photography :: Beards of Tampa Bay :: Chris

I am very excited to share another photo shoot I did for my Beards of Tampa Bay project. Chris was a lot of fun to work with and certainly had an epic beard. Name: Chris Baumaister  Where are you from? Long Island, New York Occupation: Owner of Ceramic Creations Inc How long have you been growing your beard? I've had some sort of facial hair for over 20 years but just over a year to its current condition. What started you on this path? Wanted to see how far I could take it. After the initial itchy phase passed it was all downhill from there. What is your end goal for your beard? Make me famous! Jk What is the funniest experience or comment that has happened to you because of your beard? This past Christmas I took my kids to the mall to see Santa, after the pictures where over Santa told my son to go with his mother while he has a talk with Dad.

Clearwater Photographer :: Beards of Tampa Bay :: Stephen Fox

I am very excited to share another photo shoot I did for my Beards of Tampa Bay project. Stephen was a lot of fun to work with and certainly had an epic beard. Name Stephen Fox Where are you from? Rio Grande, NJ Occupation: System Administrator How long have you been growing your beard? 13 months! I remember the exact date, March 15th, 2015, because my buddy Rick got married that day. What started you on this path? I'd been growing my beard since Movember 2014 but became frustrated with it so I decided the wedding was a good time to make a change. After I trimmed back to stubble, it seemed my beard had a will to live again and I embraced it. I think I had to trim it back to really appreciate and enjoy growing a substantial beard. I've sort of stumbled into something I'm really good at: growing facial hair. What is your end goal for your beard? I hope to be a World Beard Champion. As far as beard goals, I want to grow my beard to the floor and down the hall. [...]

Saint Petersburg Photographer :: Beards of Tampa Bay :: Corey Plummer

Below are a few of my favorites from this shoot along with links to more awesome beards... Enjoy! Brian Zak Jeffrey Adam Jeremy David Josh Ian If you or someone you know has an EPIC beard and would love to be apart of this project, please do not hesitate to reach out. Name Corey Plummer Where are you from? Winchester, Virginia Occupation Co-Founder of The Hip Lion, Coffee Co.  How long have you been growing your beard?  This beard has been since July 7th, 2015 What started you on this path? Well many reasons. One used to be an insecure thing, tbh. I didn't like the way I looked. There is also much of Virginia that is still apart of me. So being from near the Mountains, it only made sense. But now it's become something that I identify with. Kind of li[...]

Tampa Business Headshot Photography : CDS Tampa and West Elm Workspace

I had the pleasure of creating new business headshots for both CDS Tampa and West Elm Workspace. They were a great group to work with and have an epic show room! If you are in need of any office furniture, I highly recommend checking them out. This is what they had to say about working with us: "My company recently hired Jonathan Fanning for our Company Portraits. Not only was Jonathan extremely easy to coordinate with but he was also a joy to work with. He was able to help bring out everyone's individual personalities and the photos turned out amazing! We loved the entire process of working with him and will definitely be using him again in the future!"
