From long-time friend and WA colleague, Des Birt APPL HonLM:
There is great sadness with the passing of Peter Hasson, one of the legends of professional photography in Western Australia and Australia.
Originally from the bush, Pete was a rough-cut diamond of special qualities. His willingness to give to others as a colleague, a mentor and as an AIPP Member was only matched by his commitment to creative insight and professional qualities of his outstanding imagery.
Pete has many, many friends throughout the photographic industry over many decades who will mourn his passing and acknowledge his exceptional achievements and contribution.
Farewell dear colleague and friend.
