About Matt

Photographer, Writer & Author

Photography ... is about being there ... at the right time

Photography ... It’s about finding something special ...

In an ordinary place

Hello, my interest in photography started at school as I learned to develop and print black & white films in the school ‘home-made’ dark room, inspired by a teacher. It was on leaving school, I purchased my first ‘real camera’ a basic 35mm range-finder, as photography continued to interest me.

Soon after leaving the Army, I fully returned to my photography working hard and long hours to established myself as a freelance photographer and with time acquiring a range of clients, including national newspapers, magazines, public relation and press agencies.  I soon established a reputation for reliability, being able to contribute to a team, plus working to tight deadlines with the minimum of guidance and direction, which I put down to my military ethos and training.

Photography was a life choice … not a career choice …

Over three decades later, my photography and writing have an ever-growing client list as I travel extensively supporting them with a fully digital operation that interacts with the Internet for client proofing and the high-speed delivery of image files.

Having grown up on a farm I have always maintained my love of the outdoors, the British countryside, plus its heritage and traditions.  Today, I have a growing number of commissions in a wide range of activities and industries, along with written articles and books being published.

Living in Lincolnshire, I was made an OBE in 2004, and live with my wife, Karen, who shares my interests of the countryside, good food, travel and real ale; plus our team of English Springer Spaniels which we both enjoy training.
