Kent Blechynden

New Zealand photographer Kent Blechynden has spent most of his career as a staff photographer at New Zealand’s leading newspapers.

He was New Zealand’s premier music and concert photographer in the 90’s and 00’s, photographing many local Kiwi and international groups during that period. He has won national and international awards for his work.

Also a musician, he has played with many bands as a singer and blues harmonica player. Due to the current climate with photography, and the decline of newspapers, he is about to embark on a new career, but hasn’t yet made up his mind yet what that might be.
