About Matt Wilson

“The moment someone recognises
I have a style is the moment
I know I need to change it!”
Matt Wilson

He manages to capture peoples peronality in his studio or on location. Though Matt is a serious photographer he often brings humor into his work. He often works with liquids such as wine and believes liquids should be photographed very fast or very slow.
