Meet Matt

My Dad exposed me to photography as a young boy, he always loved taking photos. For him, it was a hobby and a passion; he even photographed a few friends’ weddings. I’m grateful that I’ve been able to turn my passion for photography into my career.

As a child, I was captivated by the concept of photography – of snapping an image and then eventually seeing and smelling it in print. I was naturally inquisitive and loved exploring Dad’s old boxes of trinkets; one afternoon, I hit the motherload. Beneath a pile of old photos, I found a handful of SLR cameras that I would pretend to shoot with in the backyard, but that’s as far as my ‘photography’ went until about a decade later when I was studying Illustration at Art School. 

My love of the ocean had lead me to become a surf photographer, which is where I mastered all the basics. I slowly upgraded my equipment, began shooting people and other landscapes, and my photography world expanded. Today, I specialise in Travel and Lifestyle photography.

Over the years I’ve dabbled in various styles product photography, real estate, family portraits, events, newborn shoots and more – but I’m always happiest when I am working out in the field and capturing the beauty in each place that I visit and bringing it to life through my images and for my clients.

I’m based out of the Gold Coast, where I live with my wife Danni and our three kids, two boys and a girl and I’m happy to travel anywhere in Australia or overseas on assignment. I work with marketing agencies, tourism operators and developers and any one who needs my services. Take a look at my style, please make contact and I hope we can work together.  

“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
