Andrew Hickley 
Marketing & Communications Manager, Combined Universities in Cornwall

The most recent project Matt helped us with was the creation of 12 portraits to help communicate the ways in which higher education is changing lives and businesses in Cornwall. The timescale was impossibly tight and the brief quite vague and conceptual. I asked him to illustrate a very broad cross section of stories and create a coherent set of images. He was able to persuade the subjects to meet his deadlines and create compelling images from the often unpromising material. Clearly, his intimate knowledge of Cornwall’s businesses and the broader community stood him in very good stead, but his professionalism and experience gave me huge confidence during the process that the results would be good. Matt’s creativity, experience, professionalism and the ability to get on with the job without any help was perfect for the task. He succeeded spectacularly.

Matt is, quite simply, one of the best in town. Creative, professional, and above all, really understands client needs.


Martin Nixon
Managing Director, Nixon Design

We've worked with Matt on numerous occasions, but perhaps most notably when creating engaging imagery for Falmouth University which we have then featured in their various high profile communications. The Undergraduate Prospectus, which we have designed and produced for the past 5 years, is a good case in point. Matt has always consistently delivered images of exceptional quality very often under very demanding circumstances. Despite the pressure he remains cool headed and focused at all times. He is a proactive and enthusiastic professional who is very easy to work with, yet neatly combines this with an unerring ability to create images of the highest standards. We would highly recommend him to you.


Jo Downie
Director, Wolf Rock Marketing

Matt is by far one of the most professional and exciting photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. His understanding of diverse briefs is exceptional and his ability to stay calm, focused and creative during sometimes difficult and long photo sessions is second to none. Matt has worked with me on both leisure and lifestyle shoots that involved multiple locations and style of images as well as commercial products shot in a very technical studio setup. 

Tessa Gendall
Managing Director, Gendall Design 

We have had the pleasure of working with Matt for over eight years. Over this time we have commissioned him to work together with us on projects such as the Visit Cornwall Guides, University of Falmouth Prospectuses and the Trelowarren brochure. Our reasons for choosing Matt over other photographers, has been his evident professionalism and his ability to capture exactly the right mood, character and sense of place in an image. His photographs enable us to tell a unique story for our clients whether that is promoting Cornwall, attracting students or showcasing a holiday destination. We have built a strong relationship with Matt and we have always been able to work together well to achieve results for our clients that not only solve their brief but also delight and exceed their expectations. We would of course have no hesitation in recommending Matt.


Andrew Stone
Managing & Design Director, Oracle Design

We have worked with Matt on numerous projects and he has been the ideal photographer to recommend to work with our clients. He always delivers creative and stunning photography which follows the brief. It’s refreshing to work with someone who exceeds expectations on time and within budget. He is a great professional and a pleasure to work with.
