This one was a pleasure.

I first met Brian Hurson briefly when he was a barber at Crows Nest Barbershop. Like any good barber, he had this air about him. Passionate. Dedicated. Mustachioed. And, from what I heard, was damn skilled with a straight razor. Trained in Dublin at the prestigious Waldorf Barbershop, Brian recently resurrected the original Nite Owl Barber Shop in Toronto.

I had the pleasure of catching up with Brian and his team to take some shots of his beauty shop. See for yourself, but it harkens to days long past.
