Hard to reach places 8 of 28

Stretch on Long Rd, Napier, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand

 

I mainly shoot and post landscape photography on this page, but in my working life I am a commercial photographer shooting a wide variety of subjects.

 

One of my earliest proper photography gigs was taking photos of Stretch, to be used for the artwork for his upcoming debut album. So we met up one evening and I got him to walk up and down this road until we had some shots in the can. This was one of the 'rejects' from the shoot.

 

When I shot this I hardly knew this guy, but in the 3 years since he has become a very dear friend, and we have worked together on many things ( and had many coffee meetings ) since.

 

And like it is for most people in the music / entertainment industry things are pretty tough at the moment and especially for Stretch as he was planning to record his second album this month.
