Photography and media production, with a social conscience. I care about people, I care about our planet and natural environment and I care about creating a better and fairer society for all. I stand up for the underdog and I fight for the oppressed. It’s the right thing to do.

This sense of social responsibility also extends to my work and who I work with. As a client, whether it’s providing photography coverage for your event or producing a video or short film – the product you receive will be handled with accuracy and with ethics top of mind. Doing otherwise would be detrimental to my own reputation.

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.

Over the years, I’ve worked with numerous grassroots groups, collectives and organisations to cover their events and help bring publicity to their causes.

I shoot using the Sony A99 II and a7 IV. My work can be viewed below.

My Work

My photography style can be broadly defined as photojournalistic.


From functions, to coverage of public events and live performances, to portraits and headshots and more. I’ve also won a few awards along the way.


For me, ‘clients’ are merely people or groups I work with. I’ve worked with many people and organisations over the years and all have been very pleased with the results I’ve been able to deliver for them.


This is my personal portfolio. Prints of many of these images can be purchased in the print shop.

Events and functions

I have several years of experience in capturing the energy of events and functions. From parties, to exhibitions, to book launches.

Unit Stills

My photojournalistic photography style is perfect for capturing behind the scenes (BTS) production stills. Whether it’s for feature films, short films, television shows, music videos or any sort of other productions.

Live Performances

My photohjournalistic photography style is also perfect for capturing the energy of live performances – both of the performance, as well as the audience. From bands to theatre performances.

Headshots and Portraits

From candidates standing for election to actors and even social media and dating profile photos. A great headshot makes a massive difference.

Photojournalism and Documentary

I have several years of experience providing photojournalistic coverage of events of newsworthy and public interest.

Films, Video and Digital Media

In addition to photography, I also work with grassroots groups, not for profits and other ethical entities to produce video and other digital media content to help promote their events and causes. This body of work, which often involves more people than just me to produce, is done and published under the MH Media brand name.

I’ve directed one short film so far, Locked On, a documentary on climate activism and direct action targeting ExxonMobil. The full film can be watched below:

What people say

We’ve 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, Taymaynari Productions

Matt is brilliant to deal with: smart, punctual, with a fantastic eye. He took photos for my book launch and I couldn’t be happier with the quality.
Joan Fleming


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.
