Travel Photographer Matt Considine

Welcome to my website, I hope you enjoy my photography and stories from around the world.

Using my photography I aim to capture timeless images that illuminate the diversity of cultures and people of our world. My aim is to obtain images that respect human dignity and celebrate existence.

In addition I want to raise the awareness of some of the most amazing places and wildlife that exist in the natural world. I hope that when you see my images you will be inspired to visit these places. I want to illustrate why it is worth conserving these places and the plant and animal life they support.

To achieve these aims my travel photography encompasses images of people and their cultures as well as images of wildlife and landscape photography.

Travel Photographer

In my travel photography, I aim to capture timeless images that celebrate the cultures, people and places I visit. I try to choose the most photographically interesting destinations from around the world. My portfolio includes images of Asia, Africa and the Pacific. I focus on the positive and I strive to capture the essence of each encounter and destination.

Wildlife Photographer

In my wildlife photography I strive to capture images that will inspire others to see the wonder of these animals and to care about the fate of wildlife around the world. I hope that if you haven't already that you will go and see the wildlife for yourself and become an advocate for preserving the remaining wild places on this planet.

Underwater Photographer

This is a blue planet, the oceans nurture magnificent awe inspiring creatures like whales, manta rays, and sharks and an incredible diversity of life. This blue world is however vulnerable to the depredations of man. I want to introduce you to the ethereal beauty of this blue world and to the incredible animals that inhabit it.

Fine Art Prints

For selected images I will be offering fine art limited edition prints. I use Epson archival quality papers with the new Epson Ultra Chrome HDR inks that greatly extend the color space to create vibrant and incredibly detailed prints.

    Palau – Tropical Islands and Divers’ Paradise

    Palau is a group of incredibly beautiful islands located in Micronesia.  Palau is also a divers’ paradise, certainly one of the best diving locations in the world. You can float through huge light filled caverns like Blue Holes or hook on to the reef at Blue Corner and watch as the sharks patrol the current [...]

    Africa Never Sleeps

    You probably think you know what Africa will be like from television, but the real thing is a far richer experience than you might imagine. There are a lot of animals and creatures that are rarely seen on wildlife programs and they often interact in surprising ways. For example the gazelles follow the monkeys because [...]

    Yap – Stone Money & Island Culture, Micronesia

    I remember learning about the stone money of Yap about the same time as I learnt about the pyramids of Egypt. These things can live in your imagination for so long that seeing them in real life can give you a sort of shock, as the details are filled in, and new unexpected features are [...]

    Sri Lanka Image Gallery

    I am pleased to announce a new Sri Lanka gallery with a selection of images that I think captures some of the character and beauty of this pearl of a country as it emerges from civil war and the tsunami. Sri Lanka has so much to offer the traveler, and now that there is a [...]

    India - Rajasthan: Intro

    India – Rajasthan: Intro

    Rajasthan is an ancient and hard land, chock full of history and culture. It is a land of contrasts, old and new, rich and poor, barren and fertile and rich golden ochers back-lit with bright blue skies. For photographers this means Rajasthan offers an endless supply of subject matter. It is still India though, and [...]

    India - Varanasi: Intro

    India – Varanasi: Intro

    Varanasi is a strange and ancient place, and by any measure confronting. Over 500 bodies are cremated on the ghats (banks) of the Ganges in Varanasi every day. The smoke from the pyres fills the air day and night. The huge piles of wood and the smoke stained buildings have a medieval otherworldly feel. Varanasi [...]

    Laos Gallery

    Laos includes the delightful town of Luang Prabang as well as the small pleasant capital of Vientiane. In Luang Prabang the streets are lined with old colonial French buildings, many of which have been converted into shops or restaurants. The cafe culture is also surprisingly sophisticated, with laid back places where you can relax while [...]

    This item has a mixture of slides and some HD video. The music for this video: “Can’t Find My Way Back” by Joel Masterson is perfect for this subject matter, the transitions have been timed to coincide with the beat of the music. I really like the last video sequence in the clip and I [...]

    My Shadow in Jellyfish Lake Palau

    My Shadow in Jellyfish Lake Palau

    Swimming in Jellyfish lake Palau is a fantastic experience. There are many chances to obtain interesting photographs, but I was looking for something a bit different. As I was snorkeling along the surface, shafts of light flickered past me and down into the depths leaving the impression of my shadow in the lake. To capture [...]

    Varanasi Fisherman at Dawn

    Varanasi Fisherman at Dawn

    For me this image captures something of the mystery of Varanasi. The fisherman is one world and he is reaching across the shimmering mirrored surface into another dark and mysterious world. This fisherman is a metaphor for the paradox of Varanasi, on the one hand the city provides the infrastructure to carry out the rituals [...]

    Palau has to be one of the best diving destinations in the world. Not only are the islands beautiful, there are some simply amazing, out of this world dives. One dive called Blue Holes is an underwater cavern with four holes in the top of the cavern and other holes on the reef wall. The [...]

    This slideshow of varanasi is set to music chosen to elicit the feelings evoked by being in Varanasi. Varanasi may in someway seem a sombre city, but it is full of life and there is something profound in the contrast between the reality and the unflagging faith of the believers. I hope I have caught [...]
