Hi, my name is Tim Matthews and I am an Australian based landscape and travel photographer living in Sydney’s beautiful Northern beaches. I grew up in Dee Why a few blocks from the beach, Growing up the Northern Beaches we are a little spoilt with so many beautiful beaches to photograph. Early on I was heavily it to photographing my mates surfing. Then life got in the way and after a few years I found myself getting back into photography and learning the digital side of things. After a trip in the North Island of New Zealand in 2012, I come back with some OK images but wanted to learn more so began the never-ending learning….
I love travelling and seeing the world and trying to capture what I see. Finding beautiful landscapes, appealing to my creative, and producing images that give anyone the I want to go their urge, is what gets my trigger finger tingly.
Whether its Surfing, natural or urban landscapes and aerial photography. Photography has made me appreciate my surroundings even more than before, especially landscape. Whether it’s discovering new or old places I always enjoy being out in Mother Nature.
I get asked a lot online and in person what gear i use so i thought i would just put it here and that would give me somewhere to point people to..
