I'm fortunate to have been working professionally in image production for almost all of my working life. I've been a television cameraman for twenty-one years working for the UK's biggest broadcasters and on some of the country's largest events, including the Diamond Jubilee, royal weddings and funerals and also the Olympics. But whether it's for moving images or stills, the love of creatively framing and lighting a subject has always been there for me.
Now my first love of photography has once again given me the chance to create beautiful, timeless images that capture a moment, whether it's a serene landscape, the hustle and bustle of a city at night, my varied work for commercial clients or the joy of a wedding day.
My approach is always one of quality, professionalism and planning, drawing on my experience to get the right message across for a client. I love to collaborate directly with those who commission me to create stand-out images that help to sell for a company, depict the majesty and drama of a landscape or capture the very essence and character of people.

"Matt fully understood our needs and produced a shoot which exceeded our (already high) expectations. He clearly has a strong eye for people. I was really impressed by his composition; little details I barely noticed whilst we were on the shoot are evident in the images and just add finesse to the final photos. Matt is flexible, hard-working, professional, creative and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him."
Digital Marketing Manager, Travel Nation
"We would enthusiastically recommend Matt who has worked with Bateaux London on several occasions. He demonstrated great skills and versatility, equally adept at taking room photographs, event-style photography and headshots. He was also responsive to changes on the shoot and good at working with models to get naturalistic expressions."
Marketing Manager, Bateaux London

Office Manager, George Baxter Associates
"We were absolutely delighted with the pictures Matt took for us. He has a real eye for people and places, and the quality of his work speaks for itself. Matt is very professional and easy to work with. He took what was a complex brief and really over-delivered. I'd highly recommend working with him."
