Please support this worthy cause, just in the UK one man dies from Prostate cancer EVERY HOUR. My grandfather died from it and my Uncle has it. Last year we raised just under £10,000 for The Prostate Cancer Charity through my team “Bloom ‘Tache”.

Anyone who donates £10 or more gets entered into an amazing gear draw too! HUGE PRIZES. Check it out here. 

I will be doing Video blogs every few days charting the epic progress of my mo! Check back to this page to watch them.

Below are the films I have made last year charting the progress of my Mo which are being shown on Bravo in the UK

  1. “What if small children scream?!”

    That is a line, destined to echo through the halls of greatness, and eternity!

    Haha, I laugh everytime!

  2. Ok… I’m convinced. After a similar psychological struggle I decided to join. Count me in.

    Bye bye razor.

    1. Hey, since I see nobody has answered this question for you yet…

      It’s the 100mm 2.8 Macro lens that Canon makes. Brilliant lens, my absolute favorite lens that I own, super sharp and fantastic macro shots. I fell in love the instant I put it on my camera.

      There is an “L” version of this lens. I have found that there really isn’t THAT much of a difference. It’s hardly visible unless you’re pixel peeping the background blur. Non-L version is about half the price. Not sure which Bloom uses, but I’d wager it was the non-L (am I right?).

      You can get one new for around 500 I think (non-L). I found one for 350 used. Best 350 I’ve ever spent.

      1. Oh. I see I’m a bit late to the party. That’s what being in Wisconsin without internet for a month will do to you…

  3. Great Cause. Great Video. My tache is just like the one that appears on the art work above Philip’s video. Been on my face for over 25 years now!

  4. Hey Philip, is it possible to share what kind of lights and what lenses did you use on your video?

    Looked awesome.

  5. I just got a Mohawk,does that count?within ten minutes of leaving the barber in the mall a woman pulled her daughter out of the way and said get out of the way of the scary man,ill shave it off in support no problem.

    1. YES! The Chopper ‘tache is the best. If bloom rocked that and maybe got some gold fronts for his teeth, he’d look amazing.

  6. Happy Movember Mr Bloom, just got set up for my Movember (girlfriends not to happy) and i have joined Team Bloom!
    I am just wondering how you want us to send the picture a day?.

    Here’s the shave enjoy.
