Baz Ledwidge is an Australian photographer based in the Northern Territory.
Born in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, seventeen-year-old Ledwidge began his career in photography at the Wagga Daily Advertiser. After travelling to work odd jobs in London and Papua New Guinea, he arrived in Darwin in 1974 to take up a position with the federal Australian Information Service.
Ledwidge was one of the first photographers to document the devastation in Darwin after Cyclone Tracy. “Myself and another photographer got photos in Smith Street first thing in the morning, before the bulldozers got down there. It was eerie." he said when interviewed for Territory Day [n.d.].
Ledwidge worked for 22 years as University photographer at the Northern Territory University (now Charles Darwin University) and co-founded Darwin’s Star newspaper.
