Matt is very approachable and understands exactly what the client needs. He is accommodating and his work is top notch quality. I would recommend him for any food photography work. His pricing is also very realistic.

I have been working with Matt now for the past 3 1/2 years. The vision he shares along with the attention to detail when photographing products for Whitehouse event crockery is exceptional. He has created an extensive gallery of images for the website and addition tabletop shots that simply capture the uniqueness of what we do. I hope to continue the relationship for many years to come and would highly recommend Matt for photography.

I recently contacted Matt to capture images of the Bolton Food & Drink Festival Gala Dinner. The brief was to capture the chefs at work, finished dishes and the atmosphere of the evening. Matt managed to complete the brief brilliantly, with some amazing natural shots, without any interruption to service. We will definitely be using Matt again.

Matt captured a number of images to promote our new Olive Press menu. Matt produces clear, vibrant photography which captures everything on the plate. He is easy to work with, very professional, and the photography speaks for itself. Head Chef Carl Noller & the Brigade were delighted with the results. We will definitely engage Matt to do some more photography for us in the future – we will just make sure he has breakfast first!

Matt has been assisting Red Chilli Design with photography for the past few years. Having worked with many photographers in the past, the team have found Matt’s flexible and no-nonsense approach to be like a breath of fresh air by comparison. Matt consistently delivers highly creative, technically strong images which often exceed expectations.
Munaf Ibrahim, Creative Director, Red Chilli Design  (commission undertaken : food & still life product photography)

I firstly want to thank Matt and Janice (food stylist) for fitting the work in for Buffalo at such short notice. The fact you came to our site with all your equipment was excellent! As this saved me the time and all the stress of taking our kitchen to a photographic studio, cooking our menu on unfamiliar equipment would have been difficult. The photography and styling were great, as was the advice and support, this together with the knowledge and experience you brought to the job, made the days go very smoothly. I’m planning to book Matt Pickett Photography again soon to shoot the next phase of our project.
Shazad Ahmed, Business Owner at Buffalo, Manchester (commission undertaken : food photography)

Matt is one of the best Still Life photographers I have ever worked with. He is absolutely meticulous and his attention to detail is second to none. He is also a really nice guy and is very reasonably priced considering the quality of his shots. I would thoroughly recommend him if you are after beautiful still life photography.
