I tell stories that reflect who you are and what you stand for by capturing your people, your assets and your values in action.


Visuals are essential to creating content that will help your business stand out and draw in an audience. Not only does imagery help make text-centric content more readable, digestible, and memorable, but it can be used to craft compelling messages that speak volumes without using a single word


If you’re marketing without images, you’re missing a huge opportunity to increase engagement, reach a wider audience, and maximize conversions. Adding images to an article can nearly double its views, and 67 percent of consumers say images are more important than product descriptions when making a purchase decision.


Brand imagery has always had a place in marketing, it’s undeniable that it now plays a much more important role because of social media. If properly used, images can deepen a customers, or potential customer’s attachment to your brand. Brand Imagery sets you apart from your competition

Marketing and content is about all about conveying a message to your customers. It involves emotions, wants, and desires.


Written content without images is like ice cream without toppings … it gets the job done but it doesn’t quite excite anyone, does it?


To invoke those strong feelings from clients, you need to add more than text to your marketing and advertising.

About Matt

I’m originally from the country and still hold those country values – I do what I say I’ll do and I show up on time.

I Grew up outside Singleton in the Hunter Valley. I worked as a mechanic, on cars and then bikes before shifting to earth moving equipment (Caterpillar) in the mining industry.

I’ve had a passion for photography since a young age and so I easily slipped into the role when I opened my first studio in 1996. Since then I’ve carried out endless projects and met plenty of awesome people.

In my first full year of business I shot over 200 portrait sessions and 35 weddings… And then things picked up. With a fresh and relaxed style and a rapidly growing list of clients work requests started coming from everywhere. I started multiple business including school photography, a modelling competition and even a Model agency.

In 2004 I switched to industrial photography and honestly felt like I was back home! It all felt so familiar.

I currently shoot mostly for clients who are involved in the mining industry. Most of the projects I shoot involve creating images capturing people and assets that show their purpose, vision and culture in action.

When I am not creating images for clients… I pretty much create them for me. My other passions are motorbikes and travel (Oh and two grown up kids that I don’t get to see enough of anymore), I very often get to combine all my passions, I have travelled by motorbike and created images all over the world. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Your image library should contain photography that specifically suits your needs. Images that align with the makeup of your team, the work you do, the values you hold and the way you interact with others.

Our Mission Statement

My mission is to help you tell your story… to create effective and captivating images that ensure you and your company realise its vision. I tell stories that reflect on who you are and what you stand for by capturing your people, your assets and your values in action.

Our Values

Value Driven

I don’t do this for the money. I know I do what I do well and I charge accordingly, but it’s not about the money. My reputation hinges upon the quality of images I create and the service I provide for every client.

The value of me includes two important parts 1. The value of the services I provide. 2. The value of what you become as a result. Every decision and measure is based on how well it serves my clients.

Creative Tenacity

I never rest on my last great image. I constantly improve myself so I can continue to innovate for my clients. I put high priority on my development so I am always growing, adapting, scaling, and creating.

Positivity and Transparent Collaboration

We absolutely love what we do and who we do it with. Enthusiasm and energy are two qualities we always bring to the table, and we look for clients who do the same. We collaborate transparently and share openly our processes and progress to ensure we are all focused on the same outcome. We know the success of any project is in the planning so successful collaboration is key.


I know that everything I do affects our community. I also know nothing is more important to me than my community, I live and breathe it, literally. I will never (ever) enter into any contract or agreement that negatively affect my community. It’s just not worth it

Corporate Branding Photography
