Matt Pickett is a Manchester based Commercial Photographer that specialises in Food, Drink and Product Photography.

Regardless of whether Matt is working on a Cookbook or Product Promotion he always prides himself in his attention to detail, which is evident before, during and after the shoot. Matt consistently delivers high quality images which often exceed expectations.  A key component which positively impacts the quality of the final image is Matt’s studio lighting skills. This ability to shape light, define texture, create mood ensures each image has impact. Matt therefore works with the same lighting equipment regardless of whether in a studio or on location.

Matt predominantly works alone but on editorial and advertising Food and Drink shoots Matt prefers to work with a food stylist. As well as allowing him to concentrate on what he knows best, this also ensures that food is presented meticulously. On Restaurant assignments Matt can sometimes be found tucked discretely in the kitchen shooting chefs in action! This has allowed him to shoot some of the biggest names in the industry including Simon Rogan and Michael Caines MBE.

Whilst predominately working around the North West of England, Matt is always keen to venture further afield making new friends and acquaintances along the way!

Whether your a Design / PR / Advertising agency, Chef looking to create a cookbook, or a small business in search of quality but affordable photography, please get in touch.
