Sunday Morning

Sunday morning out at pipeline, being more successful paddle than my last time out. "its never a good sign to see your Canon 5ds swimming inside your housing" with a back up camera and full equipment check! I headed out first with my 50mm to capture the waves above water. The first sequence of @Masatoshiohno just blew me away, the waves were 4 foot before and after this set rolled through. With a lack of swell and crystal clear water below, I changed my set up to fish eye and mask, capturing the scene below the waves. Photographers, body surfers and a group of surf girls all enjoying the Sunday morning together out in the ocean.

The Studio_M, 1-3 La Colomberie, St. Helier

As a young boy, Matt showed an unusual interest in photography and in his parent's photo albums. His first yellow, underwater Minolta accompanied him everywhere. It was through that simple lens that he learnt to capture the sublime beauty of nature.

Matt’s love and delight in his surroundings is evident in his work. He captures and reveals the expression and detail that is seldom evident to the naked eye. His images are alive with emotion and movement; he enters the world of that image and allows us a glimpse of his excitement, his humour, his soul.

His mentors, close friends and travel opportunities have all influenced his approach to his work over the past 20 years. He is passionate about his photography and always has been. The love he has for his work, the people and places that he encounters along the way is apparent in the detail and perspective, in the stories he tells in his photographs.

Matt Porteous has won UK awards for Sports, Travel and Wedding Photography....
