Based in the West Midlands, UK, Matt Leach is a self taught, fashion, beauty and portrait photographer.

 

"I feel by networking and shooting on a regular basis, learning through experience rather than in a classroom, I have learnt my craft well and prefer to let my images speak for themselves. Through making my own mistakes, I now know the pitfalls to avoid, and the tricks to get the necessary results. I pride myself in the fact that I have come so far in a relatively short space of time, driven by my passion for creating great and different images." - Matt Leach

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Beffy G said...I shot with Matt for the first time yesterday and he is an absolute delight to work with. We hit it off right from the start and got along like a house on fire. Matt directed me to my preference, and I admired his very unique talent that he has behind a camera. He knows what he wants and he knows what he has to do to get it. The pictures that we made are stunningly beautiful and emotive. The lighting was perfect and the studio was fantastic. We shot for a very short time, however I have had the most fun I've had on a shoot in a long time. What a shoot! I cannot wait to work with you again!

Gingerface said... Matt is a legend. Shooting with Matt was an excellent experience. Possibly my most favourite shoot to date. Matt is not only a fantastic photographer but he is ace to be around as well. Highly recommended a billion percent.

Josif Nolan said... After seeing Matts work online I was excited to work with him and create some great images. After meeting him I was not disappointed. Not only did Matt create a fun and relaxed environment to shoot in we managed to have the Craic and create some brilliant images. Would highly recommend and look forward to working with him again in the near future.

Siobhán Abbey said... Matt is as much of a perfectionist as myself; if not more. Although our concepts to date have been quite simple; Matt gave me an extremely large amount of reference material to work from; ensuring the styling matched the feel that he was trying to convey. His communication is great and he is not afraid to say if something is not working to ensure a great shot.

Catriona Stewart said... Matt is friendly and aware of treating the models well. He gave them privacy without asking and asked them if it was ok to re position clothing before he did so. He returned images very very quickly and to a good standard and was happy to accommodate by requests when it came to editing them. I would definitely give Matt the time of day for a shoot, it's nice to find reliable photographers who return well edited images, quickly.
