Matthew Smith BA (Hons) DipArch RIBA ARB
Matthew studied architecture at the University of Portsmouth, graduating with first class honours in 2006, and with distinction in 2009. He is a qualified architect, and has worked as a freelance professional architectural photographer since 2012.
Through formal architectural training and professional experience within the industry, Matthew has developed an ability to read spaces and buildings effectively and creatively.
By interpreting the key themes of a project, his photographs portray the ethos of built works in an engaging, informative and considered manner.
Every photograph is taken on a levelled tripod with a geared head. This enables precise composition and framing, maximum image sharpness and the correction of perspective distortion in-camera with tilt-shift lenses.
Every selected frame is carefully processed to remove chromatic aberrations, lens distortions, vignetting and other anomalies.
Exposure, saturation, and white balance are adjusted manually, whilst erroneous objects, weathering or damage can be removed from images or repaired with professional grade post-processing.
Matthew is a fully qualified commercial UAV pilot and holds a Permission for Commercial Operations from the CAA.
