Welcome, I'm Matt David a photographer based in central Swansea.
I work on location or in my home studio.
My studio is small but well equipped with four Elinchrom professional studio strobes, two speedlights, beauty dish, 120cm octabox for soft light (absolutely love this modifier), two stripboxes with grids for low key work, 60x60 cm softbox, 3m x 6m seamless vinyl backdrop and several textured popup backdrops. I also have a range of zoom reflectors and grids since I also do product photography.
I'm particularly interested in exploring the following shoots in 2019....
Portrait and beauty.
Publicity shots for musicians / actors / performers / dancers etc.
Fashion - both men's and women's.
Sport and fitness - men and women.
Low key lighting body scape for both men and women.
Artistic nude / implied - particularly tattooed models.
Happy to consider TFP with a model if it benefits both our portfolios.
I do some professional work for youth sports clubs in South Wales and I hold a DBS certificate (formerly a CRB check).
Chaperone policy, please read ALL of it:
I do not accommodate chaperones in general. I have found them (especially partners and spouses) distracting and fidgety, and there is limited room in my studio when the equipment is all set up. If you don't feel comfortable shooting with me without a chaperone, I understand but I respectfully prefer you not to book with me. I take my photography and my reputation seriously and I need mutual trust for a successful shoot. I have a growing number of positive references and I have never been late nor failed to turn up.
Exceptions are models under 18 (in which case I will not shoot without an accompanying adult) and those who need assistance for medical or mobility issues.
Please get in touch, happy to discuss any sensible projects :)
