Art of Vision

”Vision is the art of ‘seeing’ what is invisible to others!”

Tony is a ‘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.

Tony’s career highlights feature over 200 state, national and international photography awards. In September 2013 Tony was awarded the prestigious title of Canon AIPP Australian Professional Photographer of the Year, and in the same year received the New Zealand Overseas Photographer of the Year, the Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year and the Western Australian Landscape Photographer of the Year. Tony was also invited to be a Core Artist at the 2013 Ballaratt International Foto Biennali. He was Western Australian Professional Photographer of the Year 2004 and also in 1994.

Tony Hewitt’s photographic journey has seen him explore the genres of Portrait, Landscape, Wedding and Fine Art Photography.  He has exhibited both within Australia and Overseas, and has been invited to judge both nationally and internationally since 1995.

With a passion for people, places and pictures, and an instinctive sense of the moment, Tony brings a unique combination of  creative skills, award winning photographic vision and simple creativity. ‘Something from nothing’ 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 ‘Abstract Landscapes’, &  ‘Altered Landscapes’, 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, these projects were outcomes of the travels of the ND5 collaboration. He is currently working with the same colleagues on several new projects for exhibition in 2013/14, including Shark Bay and Lord Howe Island.

As a professional speaker and presenter Tony has many years of experience. His innate philosophies on photography and vision, together with a broad skill set in the areas of personal and interpersonal communication make him an ideal presenter for almost any conference, photographic or other. He 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.
