In Every Frame
From a starting point in ceramics as a creative practise, Matt later became increasingly intrigued in the medium of photography. Beginning with a 35mm lens, he moved through medium format film cameras before arriving at digital, technology just emerging at the time. This was something that begun as a further means of exploration during his travels, but quickly went on to become a subject of consuming interest. He spent a year in both Australia and New Zealand, travelling in two campervans, decked out for the open road. He spent time in South East Asia where he developed a love for not only the culture but also the cooking and sampling of Asian food. These trips were packed full of happy memories and experiences, from skydiving, white water rafting and general extreme madness in New Zealand, to fishing trips and sand dune racing in Australia. The photo documentation series of his overseas trips compelled Matt to venture into photography as a profession.
‘What excites me about photography is the ability to deliver a powerful message in not only a series of images but also within a single frame. With every single shot I strive to deliver imagery that is both striking and timeless.’
