I met up with Hunter and his family recently in downtown Lake Charles, La. to shoot a documentary photo session with him and his two shiny loves - an Acoustic Guitar and an Electric Guitar. As we mingled about, in and out of some historic buildings, we were able to connect and he shared his story of his love for music with me...
Years have now passed since Hunter first picked up a guitar and established his core knowledge of strumming and singing. In the recent (past) year he has separated his dependency from his home town to become a mature young man and begin building the essentials to take his gifted talents to the highest level. After strenuous auditioning and endless applications to one of the TOP music schools, Hunter was accepted to the Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music in 2014. Music has become a priority to his lifestyle and everyday seems to evolve around what "could be" the next greatest and largest blessing he will ever receive.
Alongside the streets of downtown, just about the end of our photo session, Hunter found a post to prop a sit on and began performing his talent with me. He shared a beautiful song as he played his guitar. Needless to say, he attracted a small street audience!
