Interview with Matt Mallett

Interviews

07 May 2015

Posted by Sally Hart

Hi Matt! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I am a photographer based in England who runs a photography business alongside my daytime job under the name of JRM Photography after my sons initials. My love for photography came from my daytime role as a Crime Scene Examiner for 16 years and has shifted dramatically from dealing with crime scenes to photographing every day wonders of nature and more.

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AI think it's fair to say that over the years, photographing crime scenes has ensured that I have photographed most things that people would find downright weird and certainly things that would not be for the faint hearted. Now that I have shifted direction artistically I find that I will do what it takes to try and capture the perfect moment particularly when it comes to sunrises and sunsets. My most weird situation in recent times was capturing a sunset off the Essex Coast in Walton on Naze. I wrongly assessed the area I would be photographing would be sandy which actually turned out to be three feet of mud. Having struggled to get to the location I ensured I captured the image I wanted before either my camera or I disappeared into the mud never to be seen again!! Suffice to say I got some strange looks from people who obviously knew better than I about the location.

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AI have developed a real passion for landscape imagery and especially the golden hours around sunrise and sunset. Living on the Essex Coast in England allows me to exploit the natural beauty of the coastline and the ever changing looks provided by the prevailing weather conditions. Added to this I incorporate long exposures which can give a surreal look to the images I am taking. Virtually all my images are taken on tripod.
I was trained on medium format cameras and for many years my main stay camera was a Mamiya RB67. My first digital SLR camera was a Canon 300D but I soon changed to Nikon and have been with Nikon ever since updating camera bodies every so often. My current set up for landscapes is a Nikon D800 with assorted lenses but for my landscapes I use a Nikon 18-35g and Nikon 24-70g. I also use a 10 stop ND filter from SRB and assorted graduated neutral density filters. I have also recently acquired a Nikon D750 which I use for weddings and low light photography.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

APhotography is an ever evolving learning experience. There will be times when images work and other times when images do not. The art of photography is learning from those experiences but always be willing to try something new which pushes your boundaries. Digital photography has revolutionised image capture and the boundaries are only limited by your imagination. Just go out and try everything.

'My favourite pic on Picfair has to be Summer Sunset Landermere Quay. This location is situated not far from where I live. It is a tranquil untouched area of Essex and has natural beauty. I often find myself taking images here at different times of the day and each time it brings a whole new look to the surroundings. I would say it is my favourite picture postcard location' Read less

'This was really another right place,right time image capture. I had my camera and tripod with me whilst walking on the beach on a windy day and noticed the fast moving clouds above the light house. I set up the camera behind a breakwater to stop the wind blowing it over and used a 10 stop filter for a long exposure. The resultant image showed the cloud movement well and the conversion to mono brought out the contrast with the old building.' Read less

'This man made breakwater is located off the Coast of Clacton on Sea and looks out onto the Gunfleet Sands Windfarm. My intention was try and capture the evening sunset but the sky was more leaden than I anticipated. Using a long exposure I smoothed out the incoming tide and this contrasted nicely with the windfarm windmills in the distance creating quite a calming scene.' Read less

'The years pass by and I thought it would be a fitting memory to 2014 to capture the last moments of the sun of 2014 before it like the year went down in the history books. The year may have gone but not before recording it in time. Long exposure image where the sun came out for a few minutes behind a cloud.' Read less

'This was one of those once in a lifetime image capture moments whilst I was at work driving along the seafront on a foggy day. I had seen the fog pull back once exposing the fishing boat and windfarm once. As I pulled over and got my camera out it happened again and I was able to capture this image. Moments later the fog swallowed up the scene again and the opportunity lost.' Read less
