Carl Hewlett is a professional photographer based in Gloucestershire in the south west of England and is the director of Stand Out Studio Ltd. Having studied photography at City of Westminster College and at the University of Westminster, Carl considers himself to have a wide technical understanding of the medium. He began his photographic career by volunteering his spare time for local events, music and commissioned portraiture.
These experiences along with a young, yet vibrant portfolio enabled Carl to secure his first professional role as the staff photographer at the Stroud News & Journal in September 2010. He spent three years with the SNJ covering an array of different news stories, events and sporting fixtures. In August 2013 Carl made the move to TWM, a well established photographic agency where he could hone his skills covering events, PR, news stories and sporting fixtures on a national scale.
During his photographic career so far Carl's images have appeared in national media including: The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Racing Post, The Sun, The Radio Times and online with BBC, ITV News and BT Sport and regularly in regional publications such as: Cotswold Life, Business & Innovation Magazine, Business & Professional Life, Western Daily Press, Cotswold Essence, Gloucester Citizen, Gloucestershire Echo, Stroud Life and the Stroud News & Journal
In the summer of 2017 Carl set up Stand Out Studio Ltd to use the whole gamut of his skills in a new way. With a studio as his base he now has the opportunity to provide a full service to both commercial and private clients. While still spending time out on the road photographing customers at their business premises or homes, Stand Out Studio offers photographic services that can only be created in the controlled environment of a professional photographic studio space.
Carl Hewlett of Stand Out Studio Ltd has achieved the standard required and has been enrolled as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain since January 2011.
