We love the collection of photographs that Matthew has created for us! His photographs brought our restaurant to life, and showed us the true beauty of what we have created.

Sophie and Jake, Little Seeds Bar & Kitchen

You’ve dedicated years to learning your craft, spent countless hours refining products and services that you’re proud of, and now you want to show your customers what you’re about. Your business deserves imagery that is more than just a product- or head-shot; it deserves images that represent the spirit of what you do.

Whether you’re taking your first steps or have an established business, I work with local family run and artisan businesses – just like yours – to create lifestyle images that work hard for the business on your marketing platforms. My goal is to show your customers that they are buying into the craftsmanship, skill, and philosophy that goes into your product.

The key to reflecting the essence of your business starts with a story. By spending time with you and your staff, I’ll document the team supporting your business, the process behind the design, and the care, skill, and experience that results in the product that your customers love. You’ll be left with beautiful images that show your products in context and a business in it’s natural environment.
