A word about my site
I hope that you enjoy viewing these images as much as I have enjoyed photographing them. Here is a brief guide on where to find things.
Limited Edition Photographs. You can see what I consider to be my best work, taken over a 60 year period, in my limited editions gallery .
Vintage Photographs. The remaining original prints from the analogue period of my career, that is, up to 2000, are displayed in vintage photographs gallery
Open Edition Photographs. These Open Edition Photographs have been selected from all the collections in my archives. They were taken on assignments, personal projects and travels.
Blog. As well as airing my likes and dislikes, I will be doing more "How to " articles in my blog. I would also welcome your thoughts; there is a "contact us" form at the foot of every page.
Hobbs Point Cottage. I couldn't resist the opportunity to show off our guest cottage. Your chance to talk photography (with me), drink wine (with Brian) and take in the tranquility and incredible views of forest and inlet.
"Heide Smith has become Australia's most important female photographer of recent times. Of course, this also makes her one of Australia's most important contemporary photographers, but women have particularly struggled to be seen in this country, and history will, one day, record the true value of Heide's contribution to our visual history"
