After having a solo adventure to Cuba four years ago and selling his first image to Hallmark for their 2008 calendar from that trip (among 2 others) Matthew Smith’s passion for photography and nature is deeply engrained.
Matthew has had work exhibited in his hometown of Leicester England during which time one piece was sold and appeared on a TV show called 'Come Dine With Me'. On top of selling three images to Hallmark for their 2008 Calendar, Matthew had an abstract brussels card purchased and sold during the 2007 Christmas period for charity 'Help The Aged'. Thirteen images have been published as greeting cards with UK company 'Images & Editions. Matthew has recently expanded into the US as he works with the Florida based agency 'Out of the Blue'. Here he has over 65 images on a successful license.
"The world around us is my inspiration. We have so much to learn from just sitting still, slowing down, and observing for at least just a few minutes from our fast paced lives, everything nature has to offer us. Be it the flowers in a meadow or something as simple as watching the sunrise through the clouds. We all get caught up in our modern day lives and taking time to slow down again and returning back to the way nature intended us to be helps us remember we are only human. My aim is to bring a little peace in to peoples lives and to share my interpretation of Natures many wonders".
Matthew is available for new commissions & projects, if you want to get in touch about new work or his existing collections you can email him at: firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out more about Matthew or to view more of his beautiful collections you can visit his website
