So for the last month I have been in Auckland doing work for a local orchestra and taking it easy in general. Throughout my stay I got a chance to hang out with some people I knew and some people I did not know as well. I felt as though I should be doing something productive, something for my portfolio on my down time, when I wasn’t doing work for the orchestra or spending time with Alanna, so I approached a number of friends and friends of friends and asked if I could take their portraits. I wanted to take a bit of an editorial approach to them, some of them turned out that way and some of them didn’t. I was not paid for any of these photos, it was something I wanted to do for myself. Some of the people I photographed had never had their picture taken professionally and were thrilled at this. Others were nervous but after we chatted for a bit (or after I bought them a drink) we nabbed some great photos.
I’ve been in Auckland New Zealand for the past week and a half on vacation with girlfriend Alanna and all has been well.
I know I’ve been promising a new article (And it’s coming, soon) but at the moment I decided to share a few photos with you instead.
We all need a break from the things we love weather it’s a hobby or a family member or a job. The last week and a half I’ve had that break, and I was starting to get photography with-drawls.
Last night around 8PM we decided to ascend Mt. Eden for a picnic. Considering the time, it was very bright due to the city lights and cloudy sky.
I will need to be doing something much more formal soon… Lots of stuff coming, stay tuned!
