WEN HUGHES was born at St. Marys, Tasmania, on the 8th of March, 1940. He was raised on a small East Coast farm and developed a great love of nature and people. Owen began photography as a hobby, but faced by the rural depression of the 1960s he gambled on a full-time career. He established a business in Launceston in 1969 but was forced to photograph his subjects in natural surroundings because he could not afford a studio. Owen now believes this was a blessing in disguise because he developed an innovative style. It is not surprising that he has become well known for his landscapes which have earned national acclaim. Owen Hughes is clearly Tasmania's premier photographer. His accolades include:
This site presents Owen's work in the two areas for which he is best known:
Of all Owen's varied work, his favourite is wedding photography. As a person with a great love for Tasmania and Tasmanians, he values the unique opportunity that his work as a wedding photographer provides to create a record of that special day in the lives of the people who make up his community.
