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.

About the Blogs

I will talk about my mission to capture the essence of the places I visit, the people the wildlife and the landscapes. Obviously the essence of a place is subjective, and it involves my experience of the place, the culture and people, their history, religion and circumstances.

One thing I have noticed is how welcoming people are, and particularly in the more remote places, how curious they are. I have also been repeatedly surprised by the strength of many cultures. Far from falling under the influence western culture, many of the people I visited maintain a thriving and vigorous traditional cultural life.Surprisingly, and notwithstanding the cultural differences between peoples, I have also observed just how similar we all are. The more I travel, the more I see that it is the things we human beings have in common, and not our differences, which are important.

In addition I will discuss some interesting travel stories and experiences and of course from time to time I will discuss what I have learnt about travel and wildlife photography. For example techniques, gear and choice of subject, choice of destinations.

On the blog I will announce new galleries and substantial additions to existing galleries after revisiting places I have enjoyed most.

Check out my Kenya – Africa Gallery, my Laos Gallery or my Sri Lanka Gallery and my Varanasi India Gallery, meanwhile here is my Featured Gallery.
