Who I Am
My name is Matt Hale, I’m a professional freelance photographer from Tynemouth, located on the coast of Newcastle.
What I Do
‘Time Freezer Photography’ is the landscape photography portfolio of Matt Hale. I like to think of it as a moment in time, frozen in a picture forever more that can never be repeated. All of my work is available as limited edition prints in various sizes and on various media.
Matt Hale Photography is the face of my commercial work, I have a fantastic Portrait Studio at the Gallery fit for headshots, family portraits, baby bumps, new-borns, pet portraits and product photography.
Why I do It
I started taking photos when I was 17 after choosing it as an A-level subject, this was before the digital revolution so I learned everything on a fully manual camera and in a dark room. After college I went travelling for a year and really fell in love with photography, I didn’t have a brilliant camera so not many of those photos have made it to this site, but it was seeing all these amazing places that made me want to take great photos to share with my family and friends. Watching numerous glowing sunsets over different terrains was something I didn’t want to forget and I guess is why it’s one of my favorite things to photograph today. I’ve been lucky enough to work my way around the globe as a ski instructor which has given me the opportunity to see more of the world than most. I hope you enjoy my work and if you would like to view any prints before buying come see me at my gallery located at the Royal Quays Shopping Centre or make your way to one of the various coffee shops and galleries stocking my work.
