About me
Matt has experience in many different facets of photography including drone (aerial), portrait, event, wedding, documentary, fashion and lifestyle, as well as video creation. Matt is engaged primarily with capturing moments that naturally reflect people in their environments, their relationships with each other and their wider roles and functions in a community. He is also intrigued by perception; how every depiction of an object or space can be altered radically and portrayed so differently after a slight change of angle or point-of-view, particularly from an aerial perspective. Alongside that, using mostly aerial footage, Matt endeavours to elicit emotion through moving image and cinematography, with each short focusing on a specific location or a collection of moments accompanying music or sound with the aim to evoke emotion. Matt has had exhibitions of work documenting social housing in Hong Kong, has showcased selected images and video of Vietnam exhibited at a Ted X event in Ho Chi Minh and has had an exhibition displaying street art and gentrification recently undertaken in Hackney Wick, London. He has also had many publications in different outlets through a variety of briefs throughout his career.
