Originally from New Zealand, I now reside in the small beach side community of Byron Bay, Australia. With an interest in photojournalism and ocean imagery, photography has allowed me to travel to remote areas of the world-documenting subjects for the purpose of education and positive change for the environment. I started practising underwater photography in 2014 and ever since have tried to use my photographs as a way to spread awareness about environmental issues as well as foster love for the ocean by replacing fear with fascination. I do enjoy to scuba dive, but all my images are taking while free diving under natural light. Matty.
