I am a professional photographer based in the UK and I love what I do!! I have been lucky enough to work with companies such as New Balance, Anita Lingerie, Netball Scotland, Lisa Shepherd Salons, London Fashion Week, Cross Fit Coventry, Carmen Hair Products, BBC Scotland, Birmingham Knights Basketball, Tim Scott Wright Salons to name a few. I have also worked with celebrities/personalities including Tom Parker, Zoe Salmon, Louisa Lytton, The Mac Twins, The Stanton Warriors DJs and UFC fighter Paul Taylor, as well many model agencies, to create individual profile raising portfolios.
My work has been featured in Creative Head Magazine, Professional Hairdresser, HJI (Hairdressers Journal International), Hair, Mixmag, The Salon, Underlines, Obstacle Race Magazine, The Edge and Touchbase Magazine, B-Authentique Magazine, Skyn Magazine, Cherry Beauty Magazine, Shuba Magazine.
I always think that other people are a better judge than me so here are some testimonials from some of my clients...
They say " A picture paints a thousand words" with that in mind I am always very aware of the importance of the visual images that we use to promote Anita products. In a highly competitive world it becomes harder and harder to stand out in the crowd , so every penny we invest must generate the most impact possible and really make people take notice.
Achieving this means having the right person to take photographs to ensure that the thousand words each photograph speaks are the ones you want your consumer to hear.
Working With Matt always gives me the confidence that we will achieve everything we want and more ; the image will be strong and the message will be clear. His photo's can tell stories , stir emotions and attract attention, not just because of his technical ability and his constant drive for perfection , but also because of his ideas, imagination, flair and careful planning to prepare everything in advance to ensure the best results on the day.
Vision and creative flair is only half the battle when it comes to getting it right - you also need the practicalities of a well organised , timely and professional person , who ensures everything runs smoothly and to deadline, Matt delivers on all counts.

I have now been working with Matt Wilson for over 4 years and I can truly say that he is a joy to work with. His professionalism, skills as a photographer and general style makes him one of the best people I have ever worked with. Matt is laid back but at the same time gets the job done with no hassle. I would recommend Matt as a photographer to anyone that needs one.
