This year I'm doing things differently.
I’ve changed the way I print my images and the paper I print them on. My photograph's are fine art prints. I print each image on archival fine art paper, which is designed to last a life time.
Each print is individual. Signed, with the boat name, the event and the year below the image. I can emboss the word “CREW MEMBER”, “OWNERS EDITON” or “SPONSORS EDITION” into the paper. I can also include your name if you wish. The print will be as unique as your experience. It is finished with an embossed studio seal - a mark of authenticity.
I'm also photographing the race from a helicopter this year instead of a fixed wing aircraft, for the first time in 42 years. This is for reasons outside my control. Its more expensive to capture the race this way. But I’m committed to continuing to capture this incredible race, for as long as I am able. I hope you continue to support me to do so.

Tasmanian Photographer Richard Bennett, has photographed the Sydney to Hobart yacht race for 40 years. He has developed a unique style as a yacht race photographer, incorporating the rugged Tasmanian coastline, the ever-changing seascape and the yacht in its element.
Richard’s career as a photographer was sparked by his love of the Tasmanian landscape, adventure and yachts. Richard started walking in and photographing the Tasmanian landscape at just 17 years of age. From climbing the highest peaks in the South West Tasmanian wilderness, to making first ascents on the first Australian Andean Expedition, Richard became a photographer to share these remote landscapes with others.
Richard conducts photographic workshops for enthusiast and professional photographers in the remote Tasmanian landscape. He also conducts keynote presentations for conferences on building a career around the things that you love, featuring beautiful Tasmanian photography and interesting stories such as the 1998 Sydney to Hobart yacht race storm. Richard is an AIPP Master of Photography.
This photography is a work of art.
