Matthew Joseph is an award-winning people-focussed advertising photographer & director.

Based in London and shooting internationally*, my passion for photography has introduced me to many different cultures, climates and experiences over the years. The people I meet and the light and sights I see, continually inspire and propel me on an ever-evolving creative journey. I consider it a privilege.

I’m a visual storyteller, always chasing the next big challenge and I’ve been lucky enough to collaborate with many global brands and creative agencies over the years, some of whom I now get to call friends. I’m drawn to human emotion and I create stills and films centred around people and life - inspired by that raw energy of a caught moment. I strive to keep my imagery honest and relatable, all delivered with a touch of cinematic gloss.
