    Default New places in Hamilton (aka the Tron)

    ...or in the general Waikato area.
    I love the gardens but am sorta getting sick of it being my 'only' option.

    I live in the Waikato but most people want me to meet them in the Tron...

    I want some sort of country places and some grungy urban places... can anyone give me a heads up to some cool places?

    TIA.

    Check out the alleyways around the city.. theres a lot of textures and various weird doorways etc to pose in.

    These well all taken in alleyways one evening/night

    I found a nice old tagged warehouse at the southern end of tramway road.. but i drove past it the following week to see it being knocked down :-(

    The graffiti wall was/is across the road from the warehouse in town.. in the wintec carpark bit.. but its had the top part chopped off.. and not sure what else is remaining.
    I have seen another few walls around, I really need to start noting them down.

    Ah, thanks, I have used that wall, but it seems the bit you used has gone. I plan to use the music shop wall in Hamilton, and some of the doors (some great ones around the Southern End). I found a great graffiti/art wall in Raglan on the weekend - awesome with Pohutukawa behind it at the moment. It's down the track to the ramp where the rescue wave runner is launched.

    Am just in the Waikato area for the next 2 weeks.

    I'm into most types of photography.

    Any suggestions for excursions/events/landscapes to photo would be much appreciated.

    I don't do weekly shoots but I have a facebook group for Hamilton models and photographers meet-ups . We haven't done anything for about a month but you could feel free to join it and post a message there when you are free to do a shoot and a few of us could get together .
    This is from our last shoot in Raglan .
