Stranger #11 - Jack, Aspiring musician

Saw Jack coming out of a shop in Henley & his bohemian appearance just screamed out to be photographed.
When chatting to him I discovered that he is currently earning his living as a gardener, but aspires to a career in music as a guitarist. When I mentioned that my eldest son is also 20, plays guitar & that we lived locally he seemed keen to hook up with him for some jam sessions. I passed him my card so he could see his photo and perhaps contact Nathaniel through me.

This is the first night photo I've taken for my strangers project. (A fast lens is really essential). Really pleased with the view behind him of Henley town hall with the bokeh lights and the reflections on the wet pavement.

Jack was happy enough to do a couple of different poses. Alternate in comments.

This picture is #11 in my 100 strangers project. Find out more about the project and see pictures taken by other photographers at
