FINE ART AND FREELANCE

EVENT PHOTOGRAPHY. FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY. LIVE MUSIC PHOTOGRAPHY. MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY.

ABOUT MATT WARRELL

I’m Matt, a macro and live music photographer from Brisbane, Australia. My job is to create fine art that is sold in various formats such as prints, books and clothing.

I’m a photographer from Brisbane, Australia. I split my time between Brisbane and Tokyo, always trying to balance the two. It’s not easy, but I’ve never liked things that are easy.

Things that are easy never result in something unique or special. They also never make you grow as an artist. I often see artists I look up to speak of chasing simplicity – as if it’s something attainable. Technology will look after what’s complex, so let’s look after what’s simple.

We all lose the eye we had when we were young. Things didn’t matter beyond their surface value, but at the same time you recognised that there is something greater there. That’s the simplicity that I think is hard to capture.

I try to expose that instance.

Primarily I work as a fine-art photographer. I’ve released two digital collections so far; ‘Deth Kult’ and ‘Movement’ (both available on iTunes with limited edition prints available on my web store).

I’ve also worked with a wide variety of international and local bands, Australian media entities, government bodies, companies from a range of industries and more. I’ve had work published with the ABC, Courier Mail, Brisbane Times, News.com.au and more.

If you are looking for a photographer that is committed to fulfilling the brief without compromising their style, I’m the photographer for you. Otherwise, I’m happy to recommend a peer that I think would be perfect for your project.

Matt

ABOUT THE COLLECTIONS

Photography has always been a collective art form.

Whether it be collective in the sense of photographers that take the images or the images themselves, there are strong ties that exist between a series of photos.

For everything that the internet has provided us photographers, it has had the adverse affect on the way we present our products.

We lose the reference point when one image is picked from a series and used within an online format.

Hardcopies restricted this from happening, so I’m working to bring the collective nature of photography back.
