Recently I was honoured to be approached to photograph the then leaders of the New Zealand Labour Party, Andrew Little and his deputy Jacinda Ardern. As they say, a week is a long time in politics, and it’s been a heck of a few weeks in The Beehive! Just as my billboard I shot for the Green Party co-leaders James Shaw and Metiria Turei became redundant very fast, so did my photos of Andrew and Jacinda together. I am pleased I am still allowed to share them as they make me smile.
Anyone who doesn’t reside under a rock will be aware that Andrew stepped down at the start of August and Jacinda is now Leader of the Opposition, with Kelvin Davis as her deputy. So I got to photograph Kelvin last week too. :) I very much enjoyed meeting them all – I think shooting politicians is my new favourite past-time….
