About Matthew James Fry

It's a Soldier's life....

 

Serving in the British Army, I have amazing opportunities for travel and for ending up in places I would have never dreamed or expected. I move location every couple of years or so, giving me new surroundings and new inspiration all the time. Thankfully, I love to take photographs and have been able to document some of the moments in life that might otherwise be long lost memories by now. It also means I get to see the world, meet new people (and occasionally shoot at them....with my camera of course!).

 

It has to be right....

 

Historically I have been shy about showing off my work and I tend to be overly self-critical. But over recent years I have had such positive feedback about my personal projects that I am now able to show my work with a clear concience. In my mind, it is the person behind the camera that takes a good picture - not the camera. A good photograph could be taken with any camera - a mobile phone even - it's really about what you do with the picture that is important. Expensive equipment will not by itself make a good photograph, and a good photograph in itself will not always make art. Therein lies the fun - and that's why I do it.

 

Kit and Equipment

 

I use a combination of Nikon pro-level kit for serious work and always have an SLR and 3D capable point and shoot handy for opportunistic shots. I use Adobe Lightroom for workflow and processing and a mixture of Corel Paint and Adobe Photoshop for specific project work. The end result is a bespoke image for a specific purpose.

 

Finish

 

The production of imagery does not end with a digital file. It needs a medium to exist in the real world where it's presence makes a staement. To this end I am constantly experimenting with new materials and ways of presenting my work. Examples include, tile, timber, fabric, glass, aluminium and even.....paper.
