Verizon Global Gentleman or the Sainthood of Garance Dore

I don't know if any of you have seen these Verizon Global Gentleman ads that began running in GQ back in September.

It was a really fun project that Garance and I shot over the Summer in Milan, Paris, Australia and London.

I have to admit I'm happy with how the shots turned out... but poor Garance.

No photographer ever wants to shoot another photographer. Let alone your boyfriend who is a photographer.

I couldn't help it, just as she was about to shoot I would keep saying... is that the angle you're going to take???..... back light, really??.... does my hair make my face look fat???

Local florists became quite wealthy after each of these shots.

Sorry G.

Scott, you are hilarious. No wonder Garance loves you. : )


Blogger junglesiren said ... (12:05 PM) : 

That poor girl. I know she probably wanted to smack you upside your head but it would mess up your hair for the shot.

Very nice ad. And they picked the right man for the job. Thanks for explaining Milan. I've never actually loved it and always want to be elsewhere when I'm there.... like Venice for Florance.

Lucky Garance...
If I had to shoot such a handsome subject, I'd make all kinds of excuses to take "bad-shots" so I could keep shooting all day! :)

'No, your hair doesn't makes you look fat.'

Any girl (any pearson really) should know this is the way to answer the question.

Thank you for the snapshots and peeks into style and romance, sometimes small and graceful other times overwhelming like and unexpected kiss.

Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (4:30 PM) : 

This was the most charming 'Sorry' post! She captured you beautifully; and the suit is sublime.


Anonymous Emily said ... (4:50 PM) : 

Well, if you don't have the right to be fussy about how you look when you're about to appear in a national ad campaign, when DO you have the right to be fussy about your appearance?
But she did a great job. You're hot. Just saying. :]


Blogger F said ... (5:15 PM) : 

She did an awsome job. Congratulations to the both of you. Cheers!


Blogger Montreal Street Views said ... (5:19 PM) : 

Too funny, she did a great job, you look great Scott and she deserved all the flowers! :--)
It really is true, photographers hate being photographed!

Hahah Anon "The movement of the jacket is practically divine intervention." amazing! & true.

The Sartorialist and Garance?? Why did I not know this?! Gotta love it :)


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (5:36 PM) : 

You two sound so adorable.

Great shot, Garance! You should have told Scott his face makes his hair look fat. He would have totally relaxed.


Blogger sugarxnspice said ... (5:51 PM) : 

Scott you look absolutely amazing here!

'Local florists became quite wealthy..'
awww... lucky G!


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:56 PM) : 

Garance did such a superb job (of course!). The final result is brilliant!


Anonymous what what said ... (6:00 PM) : 

but look at the shot and how the right flap of your jacket poofs up in an awkward position. a good shot otherwise.


Anonymous said ... (6:15 PM) : 

Great shot - you look fantastic! Having previously written Milan off as a place I "have to" go for business but nothing more, I'll give it another chance and explore more of the outskirts.



Blogger K'arhol said ... (6:33 PM) : 

u look so serious scottie , :) !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

Scott, you have to be pleased with this photo - you look yummy ! Bravo Garance!

I wish I could engage in such amusing quarrels. It's too bad I'm studying fashion and my boyfriend is studying engineering.... *sigh*

There is nothing amusing about machinery.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

Any know what sort of suit Scott is wearing? Solid black is one of those colours that either look really good or really cheap as a suit...the deep V in the chest make this one a winner!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:06 PM) : 

wait, garance and scott are an item?


Blogger Amber said ... (8:13 PM) : 

You look good :)

And I'm so happy for all the opportunities you've gotten. Truly deserving of each and every one of them.

At least you sent her flowers! LOL. Now you need to talk to my B/F over to Pole Hill Sanitarium and give him step to step instructions on that one!

Love the movement of the jacket as well! And I truly believe humor is the core to any relationship, which you both clearly have. Although flowers never go amiss no matter how many good laughs are shared :)

very double o7.


Blogger H said ... (12:21 AM) : 

Garance's capture is a very pleasing representation of you.
I'm not a pro and I still drive my husband crazy when I dare let him take a photo of me! but I guess one knows his/her angles best. funny.

Anonymous Benedicte said ... (6:29 AM) : 

Cute !


Blogger Figjam said ... (6:52 AM) : 

Great photo although it looks like you did get into 'a bit of a flap' over it.

I checked out Verizon's Global Gentleman site and burst out laughing when I read your essentials for London - "Willies and a brolly."


Blogger Martini said ... (7:43 AM) : 

so funny, 'does my hair make my face look fat.' thanks for keeping the humour going.

And I think she will have thanked you for being such a nice and relexed model!!!

I hadn't seen the ads ... but they are wonderful - even more so with the backstory. Very well done to both of you. :)


Blogger Unknown said ... (3:26 PM) : 

you are lucky you had such a talented photographer to shoot you! but then again, the shots you have posted of Garance are equally talented... you obviously make a perfect pair! love the shot, you remind me of james bond here. Hx

Great job, Garance and keep those flowers coming!
