Foreword : Inspired by other JE featuring fellow artists, I thought I’d do some myself, who better to feature then someone I already know, I hope to do these regularly to help promote other RB artists. My first attempt can be “found here”:http://www.redbubble.com/people/innovativevisio... promoting “Rebecca Zachariah”:http://www.redbubble.com/people/drrzac .
I thought I’d take a moment to draw attention to a good friend of mine here “Matthew Bonnington”:http://www.redbubble.com/people/matthewbonnington on the Bubble and in real life that really inspires me to be a better photographer. He’s also in no small part responsible for my “Front Row Seats” as he saw the potential for a dramatic black and white when I did not.
I’ve known Matt for roughly two years and in that time I’ve always been inspired by his work, and his eye at finding “that shot”, recently I’ve been really impressed by his travel photos, getting in amongst the people and documenting them in their environment. I hope that by raising his profile here, I can guilt him into uploading some more great images but will see if it works.
Matt’s portfolio shows his breadth of talent with an interesting mix studio style and documentary, but it really is only skimming the surface. Please allow me to share a few images from his current RB portfolio.
Black Smoke 6, don’t let the title fool you this is a sexy piece of artwork, the layers of smoke just draw you in. Check out his other smoke shots too, they are gorgeous.
Bamboo, one of my favourites from his travels to China, simple yet so affect and I’ve had a friend translate, the literal translation for each character is straight or righteous, wood and gentleman although it come be a persons name. I kind of like the idea of a righteous wooden gentleman
So please check out his work, and hopefully this will convince him to upload a few more, nothing like a gentle push from a friend. I hope you’ve enjoyed checking out Matt’s work.
