Pushing Paper: Contemporary drawings from 1970 to now is a partnership exhibition with the British Museum, which opened at the Oriental Museum, Durham University. Matt was commissioned by the British Museum and Durham University to take pictures of the exhibition and opening night. He was able to capture the essence and the artistic expressions of the artworks, his attention to detail was excellent. Matt is incredibly professional, works to a high standard and gave us outstanding results. We would not hesitate to work with him in the future. His pictures have created a lasting legacy for this exhibition.

Matt provided photography services for Opera by the Lake at Van Mildert College in February 2020. From the first email exchange to the delivery of the final photography, Matt was a pleasure to work with. His communications were informative and timely and he delivered exactly what was promised; exceptional photography of a very special performance which featured Durham University’s Chancellor, Sir Thomas Allen. During the performance Matt brought absolute professionalism to his role and was able to ensure that photography was taken sensitively and without intrusion for the performers. The photography of the evening will be much treasured by the College and all of those involved. We hope that there will be opportunities to work with Matt again in the future! – Dr Victoria Brown, Van Mildert College

Matt's combination of accessibility and professionalism in the delivery of his classes equipped us with the tools to boost our business' presence online; I have no other option than to highly recommend him.

Matt made the entire cast and production team feel so comfortable and the evening was incredibly enjoyable. The shoot has made us all that bit more excited to put on the production. We really appreciated how he took the time to understand the show and our vision before the shoot itself. He brought new ideas to the table that hadn't even entered our minds, and was willing to give anything a go!

Matt has organised a series of workshops on photography, photo editing and visual storytelling for our members. He is knowledgable and thorough in explaining information, while also ensuring that the content of workshops is easy to understand even by people with no photography experience. Matt is a valuable part of our events calendar and we can’t wait to work with him in the future!

Matt is an extremely professional and reliable cameraman, and he was very accommodating of the creative vision our team had. He produced excellent photos for us promptly and exactly to our specifications. Working with him was an absolute pleasure.

Matt worked as the photographer for our tech event. He managed to capture the atmosphere of it and take a variety of photos of people working together, competing and learning. He was very professional and friendly towards the event’s attendees and we got nothing but positive reviews. He delivered high quality images and was very helpful in the process of sharing the images with our community. Very easy to work with and adaptable to our ever changing schedule.

We've worked with Matt for numerous occasions during the academic year, and he's never failed to produce first-rate photography for some of our biggest events. Students at Grey frequency comment on the great quality of his photos.

Matt is a very talented photographer. Not only was he extremely accommodating of the cast and crew when things weren't going as planned, he created some brilliant shots. He was able to convey the fun and excitable atmosphere of the play easily, allowing an audience to get an accurate idea of what to expect. I would recommend Matt to anyone who wants a professional, friendly, and beautiful experience.

Working with Mateusz was fantastic. He really captured the vision of the shoot and facilitated my ideas perfectly. He is extremely easy to work with and made all of our committee members feel very comfortable throughout the shoot.

Mateusz shot the Celebration of Enterprise Event at Durham University. We were pleased with the way he managed to capture the highlights of the event through his photos. In particular the interactions between guests as networking was a particular focus of the event.

Matt was a pleasure to work with. Slick and professional from the first consultation all the way through to the shoot itself. The photographs themselves were excellent, with a challenging location and challenging lighting conditions he still managed to produce countless balanced and sharp files. If I wanted photographs of anything in Durham he would be my first point of contact.

Matt photographed at our dancing event. Working with him was great pleasure, as it is very easy to communicate with him and find working solutions. At our event people were moving quickly while dancing and lighting was not ideal. Matt quickly understood the specific requirements and demonstrated his ability to take quality photos in these conditions, which he then proved by his work.

Mateusz was a great photographer to work with for our aerial arts photo shoot! He tailored the shoot exactly to our needs, portraying each individual as they wanted to be portrayed. The shoot itself went smoothly with a quick set up and he made it easy for us all to get the photos we wanted, even on the short time schedule. Overall a great experience for everyone and some amazing results at the end!

Mateusz is dedicated, hardworking and can easily transform a vision into reality with his photographic and editing skills! I couldn’t imagine the LGBT Fashion Show shots without him. Over the period of a long, stressful day he continued to stay on focus and creatively motivated. I would definitely recommend Mateusz if you want a photographer who is both great to work with and produces some pretty magical results!

Working with Matt is an absolute pleasure. Organised, positive and full of creative energy. Every time I have worked with Matt on a photoshoot he has breached expectations on quality of the product, even given the harshest time conditions. He provided loads of photographs to choose from and worked over time to get just the perfect shots. Book him while you can

We would quickly recommend him to anyone else looking for a photographer for an event, and we hope we can continue working with him in the future.

Mateusz creates excellent quality photographs and proved to be an expert behind the lens, able to capture the atmosphere of my concert perfectly

Mateusz produced some fantastic quality shots of the entire Geology ball. He worked quickly, efficiently and was unobtrusive. A fantastic photographer all round!

I needed a professional profile picture for an event. Mateusz managed to arrange a photo session in short notice and soon presented me with high quality photos. I absolutely recommend [this mad lad]!
