ABOUT Matthew Torrie
Over the past year Matthew has been focusing on his work as a full time photographer. It is his belief that if you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life. Matthew’s job as a photographer enables him to share his vision and travels which are highlighted by the joy that comes when viewing an exceptional image. He believes photographic images must first happen organically before they can be gauged from three important angles; First you must be able to view the image as a whole in its entirety. Secondly, you will be pulled into a section of the photograph and lastly you can look deeper into the details of the photograph to appreciate an even smaller portion of the artwork. An image which possess these qualities is one that Matthew Torrie believes to constitutes an incredible image; one that can be appreciated as a work of art across multiple occasions.
