About

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

I'm a branding and lifestyle  photographer with a passion for meaningful storytelling. I started my photography journey over a decade ago and am hugely grateful to working in a field I am so passionate about.

I love inspiring and helping businesses like you to make an impact with their imagery to use across their marketing. Capturing the essence of your brand and my client's authentic self is my goal.

As an outdoors person, I adore being in the sea and also photograph with an 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 forunate to have worked and lived over the other side of the hemisphere in New Zealand and Asia but am now based in the U.K (willing to travel).
