Behind the lens
I'm Matthew, and I'm thrilled to invite you to explore my world of imagery through this website. Here, I curate and showcase the photographs I've captured on my extraordinary journey through the world of photography. This platform is not only a window into my adventures but also a way to share my evolving story with you all.
My journey into the captivating world of photography began when I was just 14 years old. The catalyst for this lifelong passion was a simple but profound gesture from my dad. He handed me his camera to capture the cherished moments of my nan and grandad's golden wedding anniversary. Those early snapshots were imbued with love, and little did I know that this moment would serve as the genesis of my photographic voyage.
As I ventured deeper into the realm of photography, my horizons expanded when I started capturing the energy and vibrancy of a friend's band during their gigs and rehearsals. The thrill of encapsulating the spirit of live music and receiving positive feedback from those images ignited my passion for photography, and I couldn't resist the urge to explore this art form further.
My photography journey has led me to explore a variety of styles, from the enchanting landscapes of Travel and Landscape photography to the mystical world of Long Exposures, the adrenaline rush of Sports photography, and the intriguing realm of Studio work where I've had the privilege of working with talented models to create unique and captivating frames.
Beyond styles, my camera has also been my passport to the world. I've been fortunate to embark on incredible adventures, which include navigating the bustling streets of New York, admiring the timeless beauty of Rome, conquering the awe-inspiring Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, witnessing the natural wonders of Monument Valley in Utah, and exploring the mesmerizing depths of Antelope Canyons in Page, Arizona. Most recently, in 2022, I embarked on a journey that took me to the serene Gokyo Lakes and the iconic Everest Base Camp in Nepal, all while soaking in the rich cultural tapestry of Kathmandu.
Through my lens, I aim to transport you to the far corners of our world, providing a visual narrative that conveys the magnificence of the places I've been and the stories I've encountered. It's my hope that my photography will inspire you to explore, appreciate, and fall in love with the beauty of our planet, just as I have.
Thank you for joining me on this photographic adventure. I encourage you to delve into my portfolio, follow my blog, and engage with me as we celebrate the art of photography together. Let's embark on this visual expedition, one frame at a time.
