MBP showreel 2016/17


A digital Hasselblad

It is exactly 1 week since I got a new camera whoooo

Now I need to make a confession- I like cameras, I like everything to do with cameras, I like new kit, lenses, lights, tripods, I mean i even get excited about a new lens cloth so when I finally got a chance to buy a Hassy I got very excited to say the least!

Now this particular camera is more than just another camera for me, since i first started taking images Hasselblad as a company represented the very best in camera systems and I never thought I would actually be able to shoot with one yet alone own one. It was something to strive towards and hope one day to borrow!

So after many years I finally have one! Now its not the newest version (aka the £30k version!!) but its still EPIC!!! And here are a few example images whooooooo:

So to begin with was an epic journey to ffordes photographic just outside Inverness a short 6 hour round trip!!!!
And I ended up with this: 


And this is next to my canon 7dmk2:




And here are a few images from the camera, they have been tweaked in photoshop and lightroom: 







So basically this is the most fun camera I have ever worked with And I cannot wait to see what other epic shots I can get with it!!! Oh and to check out my other work go to: http://www.mattsphotosuk.com/

fashion and production

So anyone that knows me knows that I split my time between my senior producer role at MBP and shooting fashion - here's my fashion page: click here

This year has been a great year for MBP in fact our best ever year since we started yey, we have diversified out and found some great new clients, incredibly cool new industry sectors and we are soon launching a whole new arm of MBP - more info will follow shortly (gasps welcome now)

Our all new super exciting showreel will be online very soon as well yey!

And with my photography it has been a great year too and its just going to get better and better - 2 new books are in the planning stages and some new equipment will be arriving in the next few weeks and then lots and lots of pics will follow!!

But in the meantime I got to create something really cool recently with a great team. Mairi Mcqueen was part of the mastered hair program and she was set a brief for Johnnie Walker whisky she asked me to shoot this for her and it was great! for the first time in years I got to develop a script with an incredible script writer called Kelly Pierce which was amazing for me because usually I shy away from anything like that, I usually either pull the team together or shoot but getting the opportunity to help shape the concept (with the input from the rest of the team) was incredibly rewarding! And getting to work with Karen Bowen who is such a great Make up Artist and my old friend and ridiculously talented stylist Ian Tod just made it even more fun. But the stand out awesome moment for me was when Patricia, a wonderful model from colours agency first started delivering the monologue and it was perfect it was exactly how i imagined it should sound was just sooo cool haha! So here it is:
