Hendley is such a cool guy! We seriously had such a great time working with him. Firstly, from the first picture, he was a breeze to photograph. He was a natural in front of the camera! If we told him to make a serious face, he nailed it on the first try. If we told him to do a certain pose, he did it better than we could demonstrate ourselves. We felt like we were working with a model, not a senior in high school!
Besides being great to photograph, Hendley is also extremely talented and well rounded. He has played soccer and tennis for quite a while, and is great at both, was homecoming king at his school, and is great at math and science and talked about possibly doing something with one of those in college! And to top it all off, he has played guitar for 7 years, is mostly self taught, and is pretty fantastic. We loved being able to photograph him in his element; in his room, playing guitar. It was so much fun watching him play that we sometimes got distracted and stopped photographing for a minute just to listen to him! Could this kid be any cooler? Oh, and the fact that he is a huge movie buff and quoted movies like Monty Python throughout the shoot?? Yep, awesome.
Hendley, we had so much fun working with you, and really appreciated your awesome yet mature personality. I know that whichever direction you go in life, you’re bound to succeed! We wish you all the best!
