BIO - Tommy Hatwell

Born in Devon England, I have travelled, lived, worked and photographed all over the globe. My camera has been intrinsic to this journey as I explore the environment around me. 

People feature heavily in my work, I love to share time, knowledge and energy with passionate people, either on assignment for both local and international organization or personal projects, always aiming to honestly and carefully capture images which share a story of authenticity, trust, and relationship.

In 2017 my image 'NightSchool' was selected and exhibited for the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize at the National Portrait Gallery in London. I also reached the final selections for two of the Association of photographers exhibitions in London during the same year.

I share my passion with others through inspiring and insightful workshops and visiting clubs, colleges, and universities speaking about my work and my photographic journey.

2018 saw me direct my first solo exhibition, held throughout December exhibiting, 17 portraits and stories from my ongoing series Faces from Far-off Places, this was accompanied by my talk 'Around the world and back again" and attended by 130 people. 

Uganda is like a second home to me, I return each year for personal and professional projects, including capturing the 4 day Nile River festival. This is also a time to reflect on the previous year and set goals for the coming 12 months. 

Uganda 2020 is set to be quite the adventure, keep an eye out around April 2019 for more details...

Bringing a world of experience to any project, I work across the southwest and wider UK alongside clients to bring their vision, brand, products, services, and events to life, creating a visual presence through high-quality photography, video and social media content for their Business, Leisure or Pleasure.
