I’m Matt, owner and first photographer at Matt Ryle Photography.
I am self-taught. I'm not a university graduate or an award winner, but I like to think that the photos you see here on my website will speak for me and demonstrate the high quality that you can expect when you book a wedding, a portrait or family shoot day. My style is very natural and documentary, I try to not be noticed unless I need to be, and making you feel comfortable having your photo taken is my priority
Adventure is well established within the core of my love for photography. Together with my partner, Bella, one of our main passions is walking high up in remote mountains away from everything, with just our tent for shelter and the bags on our backs to carry all that we need.
This passion for adventure became even stronger within us when we decided to walk to Te Araroa, a 3000km walk down the length of New Zealand. We spent 5 months hiking along some of the most spectacular mountains New Zealand has to offer, and the picturesque and scenic landscapes that we witnessed have really inspired my own photography. If you want to learn more about our trip, you can read more in a blog that Bella wrote during the adventure. Itsjustalongwalk.co.uk
