Right Under Your Sydney Nose - The Treasure Trove Of Hugh Stewart On Instagram

If you were to walk past Hugh Stewart in the street you would think nothing of it. 

He is rather laid back and somewhat dishevelled in appearance but it masks a very gifted and unique human being who has been behind some of the most famous portraits and branded images you will see in magazines or on film posters. The New Zealand born Sydney residing photographer is one of those mysteries of antipodean life where they manage to succeed and break through on a global stage and yet remain completely comfortable in their own skin and very unaffected. And what is even more surprising is that you can often can meet him on any other weekend in Sydney when Stewart takes portraits for the public in Sydney's Paddington. 

Within Stewart's oeuvre are portraits of Johnny Cash, Judy Davis, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood and Michael Caine to name but a few. His list of celebrities that he has shot is as long as his arm but it was his recent flower portraits that caught my eye because they had a certain Margaret Olley appeal about them.
Hugh Stewart's work is as organic and natural as his own personal style. His use of light is rustic and natural and he captures the essence of the person as comfortably as we might see them if  were to sit down and have a cup of tea with them one on one on any given Tuesday in June. Perhaps this is why he is so in demand because there is nothing manufactured about his work. It is as real as the man behind the camera.

My suggestion is to take advantage of Stewart's wonderful Instagram account where you can see his work condensed.
