Matt Porteous

As a young boy, Matt showed an unusual interest in photography, his first yellow, underwater Minolta accompanied him everywhere. It was through that simple lens that he learnt to capture the sublime beauty of nature. Matt’s love and delight in his surroundings is evident in his work. He captures and reveals the expression and detail that is seldom evident to the naked eye. His images are alive with emotion and movement, he enters the world of that image and allows us a glimpse of his excitement, his humour, his soul.

‘I love shooting weddings, documenting moments, big ones, little ones and everything in-between. My style of photography is very relaxed and all about atmosphere, emotion and fun. I love to capture true magic between people in love, whether that be the bride and groom, family or guests. I want to create pictures you will love and cherish for years to come, and every time you look back at them, they will make you smile and cry.’

 

Becky Lee

‘To me, the best thing about photography is being able to find someone’s story and capture it in a single moment. That’s what truly inspires me. It’s hard to find another career that gives you such artistic freedom and enjoyment as dance. But to me, being a photographer is very close to the creative focus and energy you feel as a dancer. It’s essential to translate the raw beauty and emotive storytelling of a shoot through your lens, and be poised ready to capture that key moment. In dance it’s the climax of a performance, for example where the dancer jumps so high they look as if they’re never coming down.’
