Product Photography

I have been in the world of product photography now for the last 2 years mainly for A1 Sporting Memorabilia and Icons.com. They are both reputable sellers of authentic hand signed memorabilia and work with some of the biggest sporting name including Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Surez and many many more. As well as attending their signings session with them to photograph the sporting stars I also shoot their signed products.

I love photographing products and making something look its best for a customer to then purchase from the companies website.

Sample product images below that I photograph for A1 Sporting Memorabilia

My professional corporate shoots start from as little as £200, and if you have your own buisness then this is ideal for you to showcase your products in a professional way.

Dji Phantom 4 Drone – Matt Hardy Photography

So I have been looking for something to take my photography to that next level.

I have been looking at Drones for a while now and decided to wait for the specifications to improve before I made my purchase. When I saw that the DJI4 had been released I knew it was time. Its has an incredible 12mp camera and 4k video camera and that’s just the start. The flight time is impressive for a little built in smart battery and everything is recorded onto a micro SD card. It features a lot of built in intelligent flight modes and is super user friendly.

I love the sleek look of the body, Dji has really refined this model and its the smartest phantom yet.

For now this is only for personal use and exploring Dorset by drone. I will in time hope to take the course needed to obtain a pilots license and then I can use this for commercial use. Below is a video I made on a rather misty evening in Swanage filming the local area. It was mainly a test flight and film to see how everything performs and operates and to be honest I was blown away by it.

Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel where I will be posting more Dorset based videos.

Poole Guildhall Wedding – Stuart & Sue Get Married

Another lovely wedding

This time it was the the turn of my cousin Stu (Stew)and his partner Sue.

It would be my first family wedding and I was excited and nervous as it was family. Nothing beats a local wedding and especially when I know most of the guest I was eager to go. Stepping out my front doo the weather was perfect. No less then 100 meters away from my house I met with the ladies who were having their hair and nails done. After breathing in somewhat more hairspray then oxygen I departed to meet the lads. The drinks were already flowing rather well and Stuart’s nerves were settled. It was nice to be photographing my cousin on his big day and to also capture some lovely family photos. Go time and we all walked into town and boarded an old red london bus that would take us to the cermemoney.

Arriving at the guildhall I was greeted by familiar faces as I have now captured a few weddings at the lovely  location in old town Poole. The ceremony was short and sweet and were s0on making the most of the outdoors for the group shots and portraits. All aboard the bus again to head back to Wareham for the wedding breakfast and evenings entertainment

Below are a small selection of my photos from the day, if you are a friend or family of the bride and groom then you can view all the images here, (please just ask for the password ask the bride or groom)

I love where I grew up and I love photographing it, Dorset has some of the most gorgeous countryside in the UK. I am still finding new areas of the county to photograph in the different seasons throughout the year.

Instagram is HUGE, if your a photographer and your not on it then you should be. I share my images on there for people to see all over the world. This is where I found a small but growing community page run by another local now friend Dave. @lovefordorset features Dorset in beautiful photographs from local photographers and residents of the area. I have now teamed up alongside Dave and help run the page sharing my own Dorset landscapes and featuring what other people have captured.

If your a fellow dorset lover and photographer then please follow the page and tag you images for the chance to be featured.
