London-based Matthew Joseph is a people and portrait photographer whose commercial work sees him shooting across the advertising, editorial and corporate industries for brands, publications and selected NGOs.

Matthew won the RICS Infrastructure photographer of the year 2016 and was recently awarded 1st place at the 2017 Art Gemini Prize PhotoX competition. The winning image was taken from his latest awareness campaign for Tideway, called 'River People', which made it to a prestigious solo exhibition in Westminster, London. His work received national press coverage on TV, radio and in the newspapers, as well as being recommended by Time Out.
Matthew's latest project 'aGenda' made him a finalist in the 2017 AOP awards. and was first exhibited in August 2017, on London's famous South Bank before visiting two other venues across the capital.
Matthew is proud to have been selected by Lürzers Archive as one of the Top 200 Ad Photographers worldwide for the 2017/18 annual.
