Matthew was born and raised in England and grew up on the stunning coastline of Cornwall with his parents and 5 brothers. He discovered photography after his Grandfather passed away and left him all of his camera equipment. Matt learned on a fully manual 35mm film camera, developing his own negatives in a homemade darkroom. He was lucky enough to get a jump start on the digital era during his time in college, followed by an honors degree in photojournalism and art photography at university.
Post university, he started his own business as a professional wedding photographer in England. He became a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, and the British Professional Photographers Association. He has photographed luxury yachts, Formula 1 Racing, PGA Tour, Women’s World Cup Soccer.
