Thanks to Creative Taupo I have been able to put together a little project that started as an idea about a year ago. The Other Story has taken me back to some of the people I have met and photographed over the past year as a reporter at the Taupo Times and looks at local community member’s other stories.
The stories are emotional, funny and real and are accompanied by black and white photos lovingly printed by the lovely Jeremy at Grabb for Image Excellence.
I am blessed that the people involved have been so willing to share their stories with me as this is what has made the project really come to life.
Please feel free to come along and check it out if you’re in Taupo. The opening takes place on Saturday August 4 at 11am and all are welcome. (Please just rsvp to 0272042905 so we know how many bottle of bubbles to bring!) I’m also running an informal workshop at 11am on August 18 at the museum for anyone who might like to come along and chat about photojournalism and working in a community newspaper.
As part of the Erupt Lake Taupo Festival I got a few photos of Dylan Tahau getting a traditional tattoo created on his arm. I was lucky enough for him to let me get a few shots. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to get him crying as he’s too tough for that!
Isn’t word of mouth just lovely? Well I think it is, because it brought me to meet this lovely couple and their delightfully gorgeous son, Ryan.
Adele and Brent asked me to take photos of their wedding in Kinloch near Taupo after a mutual friend of ours had said I might have been keen. They got married in a beautiful house in front of family and friends before the rain came down and everyone scarpered inside. Thanks for letting me take photos of your special day, Adele and Brent!
Most days you can find me in the offices of the Taupo Times, a community paper in, you guessed it, Taupo where I have a tidy little job as a reporter.
As part of this job I get to take a few pictures as well which is one of the highlights of the role. I thought I’d put up a little selection of some of the shots I took in 2011 while out and about for the Taupo Times. (All photos copyright Taupo Times.)
My lovely friend and general manager of Erupt Events asked me to shoot some pictures of the Graffiato street art festival happening over Labour Weekend. Artists came from around New Zealand to share their talent with our small town and to brighten some public spaces at the same time. Here are a few snaps of them at work.
