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.

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 [...]

Sri Lanka Image Gallery

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 [...]
