Haven't done a formal portrait shot in some time and was very taken by this beard on this very nice fellow.

Ruggedly handsome fellow. And yes, I agree that the dark hair and a red beard together are a striking combination.

Thank you for sharing, $makepictures.

While I can't seem to find the name of this photographer that made this fantastic series of formal portraits of bearded men, I found a few samples here [link]
Very nice and honest portrait!

Thanks for the comment. There are competitions for facial hair and I suspect many of the pictures you linked me to were taken at those types of events.

This picture serves a very important mission. It shows a completely ordinary man, not the kind of picture you usually see today. While most pictures today present supernaturally good-looking top models, this picture serves as a much-needed counter-point to all that superficial, holier than thou portrayal.

Thank you so much for this comment. Yes, you understand it completely. But I am also very interested in the fact that he has dark hair and a red beard!
