About MeHi! I'm Matt. I'm 22 and studying photography at the Queensland College of Art in Southbank.
I love all kinds of photography! In addition to portraiture I shoot landscapes, documentary, artistic and abstract. I joined MM primarily to develop my portraiture work. However, I believe that all photography overlaps in some way; elements of one type of photography can be used to complement another. I don't want to limit myself to one specific genre and I hope that this will make me a more well-rounded photographer. I am always working on new projects and am looking for people to work with who share my interests.
My favourite thing about portraiture is the way an image can tell you so much about a person.
What really excites me is using images as a way to portray thoughts, emotions and feelings. I think that anyone can be a model and anyone can be a photographer but the best images are made when the model and photographer both let their guard down and allow their real personality to show. I really believe that this kind of connection comes across in an image and makes the final result so much more captivating.
At the moment I am shooting primarily with black and white film. I have fallen in love with black and white; I love its look and the amazing image quality it is capable of. Digital is convenient but it cannot match the brilliance of film. I still do shoot digital, but I am most passionate about film, and I believe this comes across in my images.
