Featured Photographer: Matt Evans

19 August 2014

I’m an amateur photographer currently based in Sydney, with a passion for the land, sea and sun.

Although living in Sydney for the past 10 years there is one place I’ll always call home, Bathurst, NSW. I lived in Bathurst for the first 20 years of my life, before making the sea-change to Sydney, and although 10 years is a long time in the big smoke, I would hardly consider myself a ‘city slicker’. Forever a country boy. It is only since I picked up my first DSLR camera in early 2013that I have truly discovered the beauty my old town has to offer.

Every time I go back to visit, it’s a new chance to explore and discover another hidden part of this great town I once would have ignored. Bathurst was a great place to grow up and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of moving down, especially with a small family.

Although only a newbie to photography, my obsession grows more and more every day. I’m currently 8 months into my ‘Sunny Side Up Project’ where I am capturing the sunrise each and every morning this year.

The reason I love photography is because when you have a camera in hand, you instantly become an explorer, always looking for that unique angle or undiscovered location. You get to see and appreciate the beauty in things that most people might just walk past and ignore.

I see the world differently now, and it is spectacular!
