Photography by Stretch

Hello, and welcome to my web site. I”m Wendell “Stretch” Clendennen, and I’ve been interested in photography since I first took a class in high school where I learned to the basics of photography, along with how to develop film and prints in the lab. Photography was a hobby and eventually a side hustle for many years. In the early 2000’s I began working to improve and utilize my skills in photography. I earned my certificate as a “Professional Photographer” from the New York Institute of Photography, and I am constantly working to improve my skills in photography and photo processing. 


When the COVID pandemic virtually shut down my entertainment business in 2019, I shifted my focus more to photography and began contracting as a real estate photographer.Photography is not just something I do, it’s a big part of my life and something that I enjoy doing at every opportunity.


I am available for real estate photos, family and pet portraits, commercial product photography, event photography, and more. Contact me to find how I can use my skills to be of service to you.

Real Estate Photos

I’ve photographed all types of homes and properties, and understand how to capture the marketable parts of a home to help it sell or rent. I use bracketed photography that combines multiple images into one to bring out all the beauty and details of each space.

Event Photography

I’ve been an entertainer working at parties and events since 1989. This event experience can help me to understand the flow of your event and capture both special and candid moments as they unfold.
