With over twenty five years in media, Matthew worked initially in design and advertising, latterly as head of design at agency Maher Bird, working on integrated campaigns for Nike and Mercedes. Inspired by his father's love of film and involvement in television as a producer and director for the government's Foreign and Commonwealth office and the COI, Matthew left advertising to pursue a career behind the camera, re-training as director of photography.

Studying part time at the National Film School short course unit, he started shooting and directing documentaries for Channel 4, Discovery Channel, UKTV, US network AMC, with six months working across Africa working for the United Nations and Bill Gates Foundation. In 2007 his first feature documentary as cinematographer for Fulwell73 'In the Hands of the Gods' was released by Lionsgate and opened in Leicester Square and nationwide to critical acclaim and a record number of screens for a UK feature doc. Matthew has since embraced a broad spectrum of work, from documentary to feature, commercial and content.

Matt also directs as well as shoots and amongst numerous promos, documentary and corporates, directing work has included 'Keep Discovering' digital campaign for Emirates airlines and LMFM shot in Sao Paulo, New York, Mumbai, Kenya and the UK for which he won a Cannes Silver Lion, Webby and Campaign Digital Awards, as well as cinema and digital content for the launch of the last three films in the Star Wars franchise, Rogue One and the Last Jedi for Lucasfilm, Disney, GREAT and Feref. Matthew has worked as Director of Photography on commercial work for Adidas, Barclays, Kellogg's, Landrover, Mclaren, Sony, Star Alliance and documentary for BBC and ITV.

Matthew has shot all over world, working in Australia, Africa, North, Central and South America, India, China and most of Europe and holds both UK and Canadian passports.
