When asked what he likes to photograph, Girard tells OUT he likes to shoot people.
"My favorite, though, is people in nature," he adds.
"Most people I work with I've booked because I put myself out there and ask them point blank, 'Can I photo you?'" Girard says. "About 30% say yes, and the rest probably think I'm nutty."
"Adam had the idea of climbing onto the building next to my house for his shoot," Girard says of this shoot with the bearded musician.
"For me, body hair goes back to my fixation on all things graphically interesting," Girard says. "What someone does with their facial hair illustrates so much of their personality. The possibilities are endless, truly."
"As a recently baby-faced man, I can safely say that I absolutely am fixated on facial hair," Girard says. "Stubble is no fun."
"Brian is my coworker, and obviously there are no boundaries with that one," Girard says of this shoot.
