Welcome to my website.
I am Matt Ward. Although an Outlander (yes, I am a huge fan!), I have lived in Scotland for 3 years in rural Dumfries and Galloway with my wife and two sons.
I have been a photographer for nearly 10 years and a full time Landscape Photographer for nearly 3 years. During this time I have been running workshops and selling my landscape art in my own galleries as well as online and at shows, such as the Galloway Country Fair.
I also do commercial work such as corporate event days, as well as product photography for local and national businesses and organistations. My work has been featured in local and national press as well as on company websites and marketing materials promoting their goods and services.
Prior to this, I worked as a full time wedding and fine art portrait photographer. This job allowed me to meet some amazing people and make great contacts across the country, but I found that my passion lay in other areas of photography and, more recently, cinematography. Whilst I do not actively promote my portrait business or wedding photography, I do still receive and take commissions for fine art portrait photography - both in the studio and on location - and the occasional wedding. If this is something you are interested in and wish to see a portfolio, please contact me.
I have recently given up my studio to focus more on workshops and tutorials, as well as working on my fledgling YouTube channel which you can find just here - please check it out. It is routinely updated with Vlogs as well as useful hints and tips; both photography and editing.
If you have any questions for me, or would like to attend one of my workshops then please feel free to get in touch and I will be delighted to help you.
Thank you once again for visiting my website.
