Growing up I always used to see GQ magazine and try get a copy as much as I could and now I read a lot of the articles that range from style, fitness etc. GQ magazine is the epitome of what the Modern Gentleman should aspire to be. I definitely try to get at least a few issues they release. It’s a magazine I one day hope to contribute to and feature in (One can dream right)! My good friend Darren (Amazing photographer and all round inspirational gent) and I were hanging out on a roof top terrace at a friend’s penthouse apartment when an opportunity struck. We decided why not do an GQ inspired shoot since we were both massive fans of the Magazine. Enter Chance the Quacker and thus a slick GQ inspired test shoot occurred.
Below is the full collection of the photos and what I feel like my GQ shoot would look like if I was tasked to do one. Hope you like the photos and can see the vision we were going for. Now someone get me in touch with Dylan Jones of Brisith GQ or GQ South Africa’s Nkosiyati Khumalo so we can work on something cool. As I said one can only dream!
