3 days, 12 locations, 36 models, 54 scenarios – Iain worked across the city to create an image bank of spontaneous, bright and contemporary images for the banking giant. The concept of the shoot was to capture everyday moments, as if shot on an iPhone for Instagram. Iain says ‘the ambitious shoot was possible because of a great team working together from the art director (Hsu-Ying Fullick), art buyer (Claire Arroyo), producers (Jonathon Nixon in the UK, Gavin Schneider in South Africa) to stylists, hair and make-up, drivers and assistants’.
Shooting an array of gravity defying facial fuzz, Iain’s clean and crisp portraits are a real love letter to eccentricity and personal style. Definitely worth the trip to Austria.

Creating bespoke beard oils, waxes and other great products, Captain Fawcett teamed up with model Ricki Hall to create his own signature scent, Booze and Baccy. Rather than cigarette butts, think ‘honeyed fresh tobacco leaves, dusty aromatic frankincense, maple-like benzoin, woody oak moss and warm exotic vanilla bean, layered with mid notes of fresh hops and sweet bog myrtle finished with the top notes of spice from the bay rum tree and zesty orange’. We love the product and this great promotional shot Iain took with Ricki at LASSCO in Bermondsey.
