Hi! Thanks for visiting my page. I'm Mattea. 

I'm a branding and lifestyle professional photographer with a passion for meaningful storytelling. I also have experience in editorial and events, as well as writing part time for various publications. 

I help businesses and entrepreneurs all over the world create a strong brand presence, attract more success and growth in their business and boost sales.  I provide bespoke imagery and visuals - capturing the essence of a brand/client's authentic self is my goal to save them time and stress.

As an outdoors person, I adore being in the sea and in nature and also offer water shoots with underwater-housing. 

My written and photography work has been published in publications such as Coast, The Independent, Hampshire Life, Dorset, Docu, Monster Children and Dumbo Feather magazines. I've been fortunate to have worked and lived over the other side of the hemisphere in New Zealand and Asia but am now based in Australia (willing to travel).
