Profile // About Tony
Tony is a â€˜Grand Master of Photography’ of the prestigious Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP). He is an Honorary Fellow of the AIPP and a Fellow of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography.
Tonyâ€™s career highlights feature over 150 state, national and international photography awards. He was Western Australian Professional Photographer of the Year 2004 and also in 1994.
Tony Hewittâ€™s photographic journey has seen him explore the genres of Portrait, Landscape, Wedding and Fine Art Photography.Â He has exhibited both within Australia and Overseas, and has been invited to judge both nationally and internationally since 1995.
With a passion for visual expression, and an instinctive sense of the moment, Tony brings a unique combination of award winning photographic vision and simple creativity. Creating â€˜something from nothingâ€™ is a common theme behind images such as those in his Concrete Series, and his Portrait images often look to present the person, within the context of their environment, in simple but revealing ways. In some more recent explorations Tony has enjoyed capturing â€˜Altered Landscapesâ€™, which seek to illustrate the hand of man and its’ impact on his surroundings. In 2010 he exhibited jointly in the exhibition “52 weeks on – the Pilbara Project”, and featured in the publication of the same name. More recently he was an integral part of the South West Light Project and Exhibitions. He is currently collaborating with the same colleagues on several new projects for exhibition in 2013/14.
As a professional speaker and presenter Tony also has a broad skill set in the areas of personal and interpersonal communication and presents on subjects as diverse as repoire and personal awareness, often utilising his amazing images to illustrate various aspects of his message. A qualified Master Practitioner of NLP, (Neuro Linguistic Programming), he has also co-authored a series of 9 books, which stimulate and service the growing demand for information in the area of lifestyle and well-being.
