Our Ambassadors

Cam Yates aka southpawslinger_

I’ve been barbering since 2017! I started my career working in walk in shops, learning a more traditional style of barbering, before transitioning into more of, what I like to call, a modern barber, incorporating more precision scissor work into my cutting style. I’ve been working at an appointment based barbershop in Brisbane since 2021 and am very lucky to be able to work side by side with my talented co workers! I love cutting a wide range of styles. My favourite trims to do at the moment are crops and slick backs as I think they capture the essence of modern barbering really well and allow me to combine my love of clipper work with some scissor work. My favourite Gamma+ tool is the Boosted clipper. I use it in the shop every single day, it’s an absolute work horse and is an absolute weapon when it comes to fade work! (Ryan Co. Barbership, Fortitude Valley, Brisbane QLD)

Binga Thompson aka tebarbershack

I have been in the industry going on 12 years, working both in New Zealand and Perth WA for the last 10 years. In this time, I have amalgamated a vast skillset on the clippers,

allowing me to become a leader in my craft. Barbering has taken me on a journey that I never thought possible, and have made many great friendships along the way.

My greatest attribute would have to be the banter i bring to work. Without that the workplace would be a dull place. (Te Barber Schack – Joondalup, Perth, WA)
