Hi, Matt Widgery here. I'm a wedding and portrait and travel photographer from Cambridgeshire in the UK and I really love my job!

I also host a popular photography YouTube channel to help other photographers, as well as running workshops all over the world so you can brush up your skills in some really cool locations.


My wedding work is photojournalistic in style. I believe a good set of wedding photos should not only tell the story of the day, but should be technically excellent too. Drawing on the best abilities of the photographer to compose, light and time candid moments in a way that is most satisfying to the eye as well as the heart and soul. This is what I find most exciting about shooting weddings.


When I’m shooting a portrait of someone I believe that you must convey more in the photograph than someone’s likeness. My portraits always tell you something extra about the person that is uniquely them. I like to put my subjects into locations and have them doing things that add layers of meaning to the image. I want my portraiture to be as meaningful to those who know the subject and those who have never met them.


I’m lucky enough to regularly travel to Greece to teach and shoot. Great travel photography should be a hymn to the place, the people and the culture of where you visit. It should carry the soul of the place and convey it to those who look at the pictures. This is my goal when shooting travel photography and what I teach in my workshops out there.

Have a look through my portfolio and whatever you need your photos for, you'll quickly see why my motto is "You at your best, for the world to see!"
