I'm a Suffolk based Graphic Designer and Photographer
You Have to Know
A little about me
I’m Matt Finch, I’m a graphic designer and photographer based in Ipswich.
By day I work as part of the marketing team for a Suffolk based hotel group producing their graphics and photographing the hotels and food for marketing. With them based all around the county I have quite a vested interest in making sure Suffolk is always shown at its best.
In my spare time, I’m an outdoor photographer. We are very lucky here in Suffolk to be blessed with a great coastline, ancient woodlands and river banks that allow us to boast of many photo opportunities when the conditions are right. There is nothing better than to get out into nature and explore the beauty of Suffolk.
Over the last 10 years or so I’ve been exploring and capturing some wonderful moments at sunrise, sunset and in some very different conditions around the county. I have a real soft spot for being up early and seeing the world wake up, when everyone else is asleep. I have found great solace in photography over the last few years and I feel I should try and share how beautiful the county is.
I can often be found on a beach having a coffee after an early morning shoot, or walking around a local woodland catching the changing of the seasons. So if you ever see me do come and say hi!
For Photography, I currently use a Canon 5D MKIII and a Canon 70d, with a number of different Canon and Sigma lenses. My other essential kit is Lee Filters, Manfrotto Tripod and a Lowepro Flipside Trek BP 450aw. I also use film cameras, a Canon AE-1 35mm camera, Olympus trip and Fujifilm 200x Instax wide alongside a vast array of different colour and black and white films. To edit my photos I use both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
For Videos, the Canon 70d has very strong video capabilities. I use the same lenses as in my photography. To edit and process the video I use Adobe Premiere Pro to a very high standard. Along with this I have an extensive knowledge of live camera operating and live vision mixing for large events.
