Hi my name is Matt, and thank you for stopping by.
I've been doing photography properly as a hobby since 2006, but it was only 2017 that I started doing studio work and proper portrait photography, and haven't looked back since.
I love the interaction with people, making new contacts and friends. There's something about this type of photography that helps to build bonds with people. After all, the model and the photographer have to fully trust each other to get the best out of both of their work. Let's be honest, this type of photography is all about collaboration if you want to get the best results.
I also love meeting other togs, exchanging ideas and discussing various styles. Not to mention gaining the odd tip from those that I admire and aspire to. You know who you are!
I don't drive so my options are limited as to where I can take my shots, but I am very lucky to have a great studio 10 minutes walk from where I live, so I generally work out of Saturn Photographic Studios. But I have been known to travel a little further afield when the right opportunity arises. I also get got rail travel rates through my work, so where trains are an option, I can travel anywhere from Kings Cross to Edinburgh!
Wherever possible I like to work with props as I think it gives the model the opportunity to try something new and creatively devise something different from everybody else.
I enjoy doing horror themed shoots as you can always get something different with a little bit of imagination. But that doesn't mean I don't get something out of other forms of shoots.
I like to think that I am easy to work with, happy to let models express themselves, but like to give a bit of direction at times, especially when I have a particular project in mind. I respect boundaries as I feel that if everybody is happy you get better results. See my References below from some models that I have worked with.
This is the greatest hobby in the world in my opinion, so take a look at my portfolio below and if you like what you see and want to collaborate then drop me a line, or Follow me to see what I can come up with next.
The next shoot is always a mystery waiting to be discovered!
