For this week’s episode of the podcast, Ugo had a great conversation with Matt Brandon.
Matt Brandon is a Malaysia-based assignment photographer; Matt has experience photographing for nonprofits, assignment, and editorial work. Recently Matt was the still photographer for Indian Summers a Channel 4 & PBS series filmed in Penang, Malaysia. Matt works well with writers and producers. Matt often collaborates with NGOs to tell their stories and to train their field staff to do the same.
Asian Geographic, KLM Airlines, Channel 4 & PBS, Partner Aid International, NeighborWorks, Honda Motor Corporation, Bombadier Transport Corporation and others have all used Matt;s images. Having photographed in Egypt, Tibet, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Maldives, Philippines, Malaysia to name a few, it is clear Matt doesn’t have an issue with travel.
Matt is also a key member of the International Guild of Visual Peacemakers, he’s on the advisory board for Focus for Humanity and on the design board for Think Tank Photo, a camera bag manufacturer. Matt is also proud to be a Fujifilm X-Photographer.
Amongst the topics discussed were the importance of the human form in composition, how to meld in with the crowd, what elements contribute to stronger photos, how to create narrative depth through layering of various elements. We hope you will find this interview as insightful as it was for us.
Duration 51m 59s.
