Welcome to my website
I am Matt - a professional landscape photographer, photography trainer and occasional vlogger with several years experience working within the photography industry. I have photographed many of the UK’s beautiful places and specialise in the landscapes of Scotland and Cumbria.
I am also a commercial photographer in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dumfries and Cumbria and the surrounding areas.
I would love to help you learn to take and edit better photos, whether that is for your own personal pleasure, a desire to become a professional photographer or for your own business or organisation.
Please feel free to have a look around my site and check out my gallery. My images are available to purchase as prints or wall art.
If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you so please get in touch.
For a number of years I was a wedding photographer which was great, but it was never my passion. Landscape photography was and still is. Even though it can be the most frustrating and maddening thing, there is nothing quite like the buzz of seeing one of my landscape photos on my wall or selling one to someone else to put on their wall.
As with most types of photography and art, landscape photography is subjective. My style can often involve a fair amount of post-processing. Capturing the image with the camera is just the first part of the process, although it is still 100% definitely the most important part. The second part, editing, is where the magic happens! I want my images to reflect how I felt when I was there; be that uplifted, intimidated, cold, irrelevant, small, reverent, relaxed, calm - whatever it was that made me want to capture the image. From standing on the wild coast of a Hebridean island to the serenity of a late evening sunset on a still day in the Lakes, each of my photos should hopefully evoke an emotion or feeling.
It is a real privilege to be a professional landscape photographer and one of my greatest joys is to provide landscape photography workshops. I do this across Scotland and also in the beautiful, if rather busy, Lake District in Cumbria. Using my local knowledge plus the years of experience I have, I have tailored these courses to provide the perfect balance of tuition coupled with the best chance to get some truly spectacular photos.
