Simon Westlake

Simon leads the photographic team with the same passion and creativity that has made the Illustrations name legendary. The four times Canon Professional Photographer of the Year is as comfortable getting results harnessed to a scaffold tower in freezing rain as he is in a studio environment.

Simon’s passion is capturing moments of human joy, frailty or strength and loves being a fly on the wall. He also loves a technical challenge and thrives on getting great results from difficult circumstances.

Simon’s craft and dedication has earned him many accolades including multiple Gold and Silver awards at the Perth Advertising & Design Club Awards, the national Canon Professional Photographer of the Year Awards and the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers Awards.
