Twelve famous Aussie faces are pledging to Mo this Movember.

I Pledge to Mo
Twelve famous Aussie faces, showcased in a photo series by internationally renowned fashion and portrait photographer Simon Upton, are pledging to grow a Mo and encourage everyone around Australia to sign up as the countdown to the hairiest month of the year draws closer.
The ‘I Pledge To Mo’ series features well known faces sporting top lips decked with shaving foam, to demonstrate how men around the country commence their hairy missions:
  • Olympic swimmer James Magnussen
  • Dual international cricketer and soccer star Ellyse Perry
  • Australian T20 cricket captain Aaron Finch
  • Channel V host and DJ Danny Clayton
  • Bondi Rescue stars Trent Maxwell, Jesse Pollock and Ryan Clark
  • AFL players Nathan Fyfe and Drew Petrie
  • Professional rugby league and rugby union player Timana Tahu
  • My Kitchen Rules star Scott Gooding 
  • Masterchef 2014 winner Brent Owens
The result is a fun, striking series of individual images and an impressive group shot all captured by Australian photographer Simon Upton, who has snapped the likes of Cindy Crawford, Eva Longoria and Miranda Kerr amongst other high-profile stars.  
“When I was approached with the idea of the simple yet powerful shaving foam Mo’s, in combination with the stylish suits that’s similar to this year’s Made in Movember campaign, I knew we could have a lot of fun with the concept,” Upton said.  
“Photography can be a powerful medium for storytelling and I hope the images we’ve created inspire people to find out more about men’s health issues and get involved with Movember,” he added.
