ABOUT ME

I’m a photographer based in Geelong, and working primarily in the Geelong and Melbourne areas. My photographic areas of interest are photojournalism, documentary, live performance and production stills photography. Broadly speaking, I take a photojournalistic approach to my photography work.

My Photography Showcase

My photography work covers a range of different themes and subject matter, and my style across all of my work can be broadly described as photojournalistic – capturing people and scenes in the moment and as the action is unfolding. My work can be viewed below.

 

I shoot using the Sony A99 II and A-mount lenses.

Landscapes and Locations

This is my personal portfolio. Some of these are purchasable on Redbubble. Like something below but it’s not available for purchase? Get in touch.

Unit Stills and Live Performances

My photojournalistic style also extends to how I capture stills on set and behind the scenes of productions, as well as the energy of live performances. View more.

Photojournalism and Documentary Photography

I cover many different events and actions in and around Melbourne, Geelong and regional Victoria. Whether it’s related to workers rights, the environment and climate change, refugees, First Australians’ justice, or anything in between. View more.

Testimonials

“We have hired Matt as an on set and stills photographer on many of our film sets. He is a delight and his work is of an exceptional quality.”

– Dia Taylor, Managing Director of Taymaynari Productions.

“Matt produced a series of short video clips for social media during my council election campaign. He produced a professional product with minimal direction, and a quick turnaround time. He was also really easy to work with, very responsive to queries and minor change requests. I’m really happy to recommend Matt’s work.”

– Melissa Cadwell, 2020 City of Greater Geelong Council Candidate.
