I had to take some pictures last weekend for my Mum and her company, so while I had my lights setup I thought I’d grab a few shots of my brother, Matt.
Matt is an aircon/fridgy with a lot of potential. He has climbed the ranks within his company, and is looking to expand his horizons even further. Personally, I’m trying to push him towards an engineering degree, and he is really interested in this option, but we’ll wait and see what happens.
Even though he doesn’t have an SLR, Matt is starting to develop an interest in photography. I decided to show him two simple lighting setups and how we can achieve different results with light. I love these two images of Matt, I think they show two sides of him that a lot of people will recognise.
Matt was a bit of a bad-ass when we were growing up. He occasionally got into trouble, but never anything too serious. He always stood his ground, and stood up for his friends and family. This is the Matt some people will remember.
Nowadays, Matt is a gentle giant. I still wouldn’t want to piss him off though (haha). Â Honestly, he is up there with some of the kindest, loving, sharing people I know. He’s more than happy to help others out, to share his stories and expertise, and have a joke when he gets the chance. He is a lot smarter than he lets on, and has the potential to do almost anything. He is now living with his beautiful girlfriend, Em, and their little pup, Oodle.
I hope to catch up with you guys again soon. More photos next time, maybe of the whole family.
Love you bro.
