About Mathew Lodge
Mathew took his first photograph with a basic Kodak camera, developed the Ilford XP5 black and white film and made his first print at the age of 10. He was hooked. Trained in traditional black and white photography and print-making, Mathew worked for a long time with a simple Braun viewfinder film camera, a couple of prime lenses, and a hand-held light meter leading to a passion for available light photography.
At university he was Photographic Director of the student newspaper Vision and nominated for the prestigious London Guardian Media Awards. A career in business took him to San Francisco and Austin, and enabled him to hone his travel photography skills, leading to the launch of this site in 2003.
Today, Mathew’s photographs regularly appear in national newspapers, magazines, books, and on TV and websites
