Who is Matt Thomas Photography?


I am a photographer based within Gloucester who has a passion for all things photographic, no matter if it’s film, digital or even my iPhone. I enjoy being able to capture that moment in time in a creative and dynamic style.

My passion for photography first started when I studied photography at college in 2007. Developing film in the college labs and learning the process and where photography all began. Since then my passion and creative ideas have grown and developed massively. My first interest within photography was just shooting photos of my friends skateboarding, however now I have adapted my skills into different areas, including fitness, commercial and 360 virtual tours photography. When I get a chance I still like to enjoy exploring the world and expanding my travel portfolio.

A lot of my experience in travel photography came from working as a cruise ship photographer on P&O Cruises visiting various different ports and cities around the world. Making sure I always had my camera by my side ready to snap the undiscovered places I visited. Since leaving cruise ships and that life, I still like to travel and build a greater visual reference of the world around me.

The main photographic equipment I use is part of Nikon’s professional series of DSLR’s with Nikkor professional lenses. I still like to go back to the roots of photography from my college days and shoot a bit of film, still developing black & white film at home myself. To see a full list of equipment click here.

Feel free to get in touch with myself regarding photo shoots. A detailed list of the services I offer is online here. If you have any questions about booking myself for any photographic work then please use the online form here and I’ll reply ASAP. I am always willing to help out on photo shoots with assist work and I have my own mode of transport.
