Celebrated industry photographer, Tony Le Britton from Newcastle, has been awarded the Best International Hair and Beauty Photographer at the TCT Awards 2019, which recognises talented international hairdressers and photographers.

Le Britton’s work has been seen in many publications not only in the UK but internationally, including on the front covers of top trade magazines. Le Britton has also worked with renowned international brands in hair and beauty shooting collections and global campaigns.

To enter the awards, Le Britton had to send a collection of four images relating to his area of expertise – beauty photography, as well as a link to his website and social media channels, along with a general portfolio for the year 2018/19. This was judged by a group of experts from the world of makeup and hairdressing fashion, to assess Tony’s versatility and proficiency of photography in the area of fashion hairdressing.

Le Britton was announced the winner of the category at the 2019 TCT Award Ceremony that took place during the Live 019 hairdressing event on the island of Gran Canaria in Spain on the 21st September, where more than 400 professionals came from different countries across the world for the announcement of the awards.

Le Britton commented: “To have won this award means a great deal to me. Photography is my passion and I love seeing the results that come from the imagery I help to create for the hairdressers and beauty professionals I work with. Winning this award being up against other talented photographers is an honour and I’m truly delighted.”
