Photographer Alex Waterhouse-Hayward honoured for lifetime achievement by Western Magazine Awards

 Jan/Feb 2011 Vancouver magazine
The Western Magazine Awards has announced that its 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award winner is to be presented to Vancouver-based photographer, writer and artist Alex Waterhouse-Hayward.
"When one considers the range, depth and quality of his magazine photography, which is his overriding passion, and his persistent involvement in the industry since its formative years in Western Canada, no photographer is more deserving," said his nomination package.
A commercial photographer who's at home in art, editorial, portrait and commercial work, Waterhouse-Hayward (shown at right in behind and in front of the camera simultaneously in a story in the January/February 2011 issue of Vancouver) is best known in the magazine world for his detailed and specialized photo illustrations for magazines such as Vancouver magazine, Georgia Straight and Western Living as well as many American titles. 

His award will be presented at the 29th annual WMA gala  Friday June 17, 2011 at the Marriott Vancouver Hotel Harbourside.
