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.

Northern Lights (41 images)

The Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) occur when charged particles from the sun are diverted by the Earth's magnetic field (magnetosphere) and collide with elements in the atmosphere, releasing different colors of light for different elements. The earth's magnetosphere has protected the atmosphere from being stripped of important life giving elements and also diverts charged particles to the poles. Perhaps you could say that the presence of a magnetosphere and hence an aurora are probably a precondition for complex surface life. The aurora are beautiful, ever changing, unpredictable, dynamic and filling the sky will leave you in awe. Of course it sometimes gets a little chilly, one night it got down to minus 37 degrees Celsius (almost the same in Fahrenheit).
