Recently, I had the opportunity to work with celebrity barber Derek ‘Buck’ Williams, owner of Groom My Style Mens salon in Annapolis MD.

In fact, we were there to capture that presence through branding photography. For this reasons, we wanted to infuse as much of Derek’s presence as possible into his new salon. In addition to working inside the mens salon, we captured as many branded images as possible to showcase Groom my style’s vast array of salon services

Groom My Style has been in business for 18 years. In detail, the salon started in Maryland, then relocated to Los Angeles to work with celebrities in show business. Eventually returning his business Maryland.  Not long after, on Friday April 13, 2018, Williams hosted a red ribbing cutting ceremony welcoming his clients to the new full service mens salon located in Annapolis Maryland. The salon services offers haircuts, straight blade shaved, men’s facials, massages, manicure and pedicure, custom quarterly suit fittings, style accessories along with face and hair products.

Durning his branding photo shoot, we photographed his, business headshots, business portraits, and branded stock photography for use on his website as well as promotional materials and social media. Lastly, It was wonderful to work with Derek, he was so prepared for his photo session bringing a variety of outfits and was very professional.

Event Photography Williams said “I had Simone come out to shoot my red ribbon cutting ceremony in Annapolis, Maryland.  Simone communicated with my guest on how to stand for the perfect shot, by the end, people wanted her business card. From start to finish, she was a true professional.  Matter-of-fact we did professional headshoots and a branding session at my salon. I tell everybody about Simone, she gets 5 stars in my book”.  It was a pleasure to work with Derek and I wish him all the best. Check out his salon at
