Beach Boys, Tractor Love

The Budgy Smuggler.


Smuggle your Budgy at the beach or the pool,

Wear it proud or it'll wear you.


Make sure its bright and a sexy fit,

A dazzling Budgy is always a hit.


If you got it flaunt it, strut your stuff,

The girls will swoon, they won't get enough.


Your Smuggler fits like a second skin,

Not all can wear one, just special men.


Wear your Smuggler with confidence and pride,

You know you're hot, now find your stride.

Matt Porteous

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....
