Meet Matthew

Matthew is a London-based photographer and filmmaker, specialising wildlife and travel. His personal work has received recognition in Travel Photographer of the Year and Wildlife Photographer of the Year on numerous occasions.

Matthew has an upcoming solo wildlife photography exhibition titled 'Individuals' from 22 June to 2 July 2023. The exhibition focuses on telling the personal stories of the animals he spent time with in the Maasai Mara. By highlighting these unique, personal stories and showing animals to be emotional individuals rather than just an anonymous statistic in a wider population, Matthew hopes to promote a desire to protect and care for this precious wildlife. You can read more about the exhibition here.

As well as exhibiting and selling prints, Matthew also undertakes commissions, with clients include the likes of Talisker Whisky, Visit Wales, Stena Line and Nikon. When he isn’t photographing, he loves teaching others to do so, running photography workshops and holidays, and giving talks to photography societies, schools and at travel shows.

Matthew’s images regularly appear in international publications such as National Geographic Traveler Magazine, Conde Nast and Lonely Planet. His collection of travel, wildlife, landscape and documentary photography comprises over 25,000 images from 50 countries and covers a diverse range of subjects; from lions hunting in Kenya and portraits of remote tribes in Myanmar, to skiing adventures in Scotland and remote landscapes of the Atacama Desert.

“Nothing gives me more satisfaction that capturing unique, inimitable moments with dynamic and creative visuals. I will go to any length to get those once in a lifetime shots and make your project stand out, whether that means spending multiple days with the same animal in search of an intimate portrait, taking on -40 degree temperatures inside the arctic circle, capturing photos while simultaneously stand up paddle boarding on the Thames, or flying my drone through ‘that little gap over there’.”
