... is a British born photographer who has made his home in Chile. He studied at the International Centre of Photography in N.Y. in the early nineties, going on to become a touring music photographer in the USA, working notably in the Hip Hop scene, with artists such as Mos Def, The Roots, Method Man, Redman, & Common.

After moving to Chile 14 years ago he began working in the wine industry, photographing vineyards, landscapes, wine personalities including many portraits of wine professionals, from workers to owners. In fact, though his landscapes, gastronomy, sports and travel photography are held in equal esteem, Matt likes to consider himself a portrait photographer above all else.

Matt's currently published books are: 'Chile Uncorked' which was published in 2007, following the highly successful exhibition of the same name; and 'Chile: Country of Wine and Mountains', published by Versant-Sud in Belgium (2009) - available on Amazon.
