Welcome to the blog of Wellington-based freelance press photographer and photojournalist Antony Kitchener.
Antony is a freelance photographer and photojournalist based in Wellington. He has a strong interest in documentary photography, focussing on social, humanitarian and environmental issues. In addition to commissioned work for local and national magazines he pursues self-directed projects he believes in, endeavouring to create images that scratch beyond the surface and explore the human condition.
His professional training as a photojournalist with the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) in the UK has given Antony a solid foundation to produce compelling visual stories and an eye for the extraordinary in every-day situations. A selection of his images won the Student Images of the Year for Excellence in Journalism award 2010. His images of the G20 protests in London in April 2009 were recently exhibited in Melbourne’s Federation Square as part of the 2011 Strip Billboard photojournalism exhibition.
His work has been published in the Derby Telegraph, Scarborough Evening News, and the South London Press. Recent work has been published through the New Zealand Press Association, Unlimited Magazine, Kapiti Observer, The Wellingtonian, The Dominion Post and regularly in Fishhead magazine. Antony has also worked for a number of commercial clients, including the New Zealand Red Cross, English Language Partners New Zealand, and Craft 2.0, among others.
