Bio

Matt grew up in the beachside town of New Plymouth, on the rugged West Coast of New Zealand’s North Island. From a young age, he developed
a strong sense of visual aesthetic, delving into photography, painting, design and architecture, all of which led him to cultivate an appreciation
for the finer details in his surrounding environment.

After his secondary education, Matt ventured south to study photography at Massey University’s prestigious School of Design in Wellington.
In 2009 he graduated with a Bachelor of Design with 1st Class Honours and then immediately plunged himself into the commercial world,
where he has been operating both locally and internationally in the industry ever since.

Matt’s main focus is shooting creative advertising and design-based projects in a variety of disciplines such as studio and environmental portraiture,
landscape, and still life. Moving image also forms part of his skill set and continues to grow as another real passion.

Matt shoots for a range of clients and strives to deliver meticulous detail to each and every one of them.
He currently splits his time between Auckland, New Zealand and Vancouver, Canada.

Outside of work, Matt loves being on the water, surfing in the ocean or fly-fishing  backcountry streams and rivers. He also enjoys
off-piste skiing in the winter months and most of all spending quality time with his beautiful wife Ashlee.
