My photographic story starts at the age of eleven with a spur of the moment trip into Birmingham to a used camera shop and the subsequent purchase of a Praktica BMS, a camera still with me today. I was lucky to attend a school with a darkroom and with this trusty manual camera, I managed to capture stunning images of anything I could think to shoot, while learning how to develop the film and prints. That sparked a love of photography that has stayed with me ever since, but one pursued purely as a hobby until my thirtieth birthday when I received a real Nikon digital SLR. That was the camera that took me into the professional realm and with early efforts looking promising, I decided to utilise some unused space in the family firm's factory to put together a studio.
That was in 2012 and since then I have been through numerous cameras, lighting setups and photographic theories to come to the methods I now use. My studio is perfect for product photography, packshots, portraits and corporate headshots while outside of the studio I am known to do well at parties, weddings and enjoy the composition of architectural/interior shots as well as landscapes.
This is true for videography too, with exceptionally high quality product videos supplied with original music should the need arise. Matt has also found a particular skill for wedding videos, bringing his editing and filming skills together with his passion for music and sound production.
Please explore my site to find out a little about my technique and see examples of my work, as well as the contact section of you would like to make an enquiry or book me for a session. Many thanks for visiting.
