Guy Hebblewhite at the Trans Tasman Series in 1990

  • Vale Guy Hebblewhite, the great rowing photographer whose work is exhibited throughout this website. He was a great character of the sport and loved by all. He leaves a great legacy to us all through his work. Together with business partner Cynthia Judd, Guy co-founded Hebfotos in the 1970's specialising in rowing photography. They photographed 5 Olympic regattas from 1988 to 2004, many FISA World Championships, and countless regattas in Australia and New Zealand. Guy spent 3 months in Sydney before, during and after the 2000 Olympics as the manager of the rowing media venue for the photographers. Hebfotos sponsored and supplied photos and articles for every edition of the Australian Rowing Magazine from its foundation in 1977 until its demise.
  • Thanks always to Steve Roll who continues to find vital information for the site such as full names and corrections.
