Matt is an ambitious Sports and Editorial photographer based in Southampton. With a degree in Photojournalism he went straight into the fast paced, cut-throat world of press photography. Starting as a trainee photographer for a regional paper, he spent almost 7 years covering everything from hard news, sport and lifestyle, to food, travel, Royalty and Events. He was also nominated for the 2013 Press Photographer of The Year Award.
His love for photography spawned while practicing his favourite hobby – BMX riding. When not on his bike, Matt was taking pictures of his riding friends and other professionals. This still remains a solid passion and a driving force in his photography. Matt aims to capture movement and the raw emotion found in sports and extreme sports people. It is the concentration, focus and emotion of an athlete or sports person that he strives to show in his images. Moving on from local and national press, Matt now finds himself as the Club Photographer for Southampton FC. Football being his second sport (after BMX), he has managed to combine two of his greatest passions into his daily working life, something he is very proud of. Matt is continuously pushing the boundaries of his sport photography and, with the support of his club and Interfit Photographic, he is very much looking forward to showing what can be achieved.
