I have been visiting and photographing the Tiwi Indigenous Australian inhabitants of Bathurst and Melville Islands, 60 kilometres north of Darwin, since 1987. Two books have resulted from those visits, the latest "Portrait of a People" is available in my online bookshop.
If you would like to know more about the Tiwi, Indigenous Australians from Northern Australia, you can read an extract from the introduction to my book; Introduction to the Tiwi
The gallery contains over 250 photographs of Indigenous Australians, including aboriginal culture and village life, plus a full explanation of what Limited Edition Photographs are all about, including sizes, presentation and print prices
The vintage print gallery consists of original single edition silver gelatin and cibachrome vintage photographs of Indigenous Australians, for collectors and lovers of good photography. See Vintage Photographs
Currently available books including "Portrait of a People", and collectables, are shown in the Heide Smith Bookshop.

As you may know, Heide has been photographing Canberra for a very long time, in fact for 34 years. She has already published 4 books of photographs of Canberra (a total of 25,000 books, all of which have sold), but to honour the centenary of Canberra, she has published another. ‘A Portrait of Canberra and of Canberrans 1979-2013′ which was launched at the Canberra Museum and Galleries (CMAG), on London Circuit by Robyn Archer on 20 September 2012. It is a 220 page hard cover book, 270 x 250 mm, containing approx 230 black and white and colour images of landscapes and portraits, and will be available from all leading bookshops, and online. We have been very fortunate to have Canberra Airport as our sponsor and this has enabled us to produce an extremely high quality book which retails for under $50.
After a brief sabbatical publishing books, we are reintroducing photography tuition at Hobbs Point. An absolute must for all aspiring and serious photographers - one on one tuition with Heide Smith.
