I have worked with Matt on around twenty shoots over a period of five years when I was Commissioning Editor for Visit Wales and Welsh Government. These shoots were in a wide variety of challenging environments, from summits of remote mountains to underground caves to art galleries. I was very impressed with Matt's work throughout the five years he worked with me.
I was always very pleased with Matt's photography but he also had many other qualities which made me turn to him for regular assignments. He is an excellent organiser, works very well with people, is a very good ambassador for any organisation he represents, and always remains upbeat and positive, always getting the required result.
I would have no hesitation in employing him again, and recommend him to anyone who should happen to ask.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt Cant on several photoshoots, all of which have been a pleasure. He has an acute eye for detail and he really brings our bespoke staircases to life. His ability to find the precise lighting for the perfect shot is phenomenal.
At Jarrods, we create bespoke staircases so our photoshoots often take place at our customers’ own homes. This isn’t a problem with Matt as we’re always more than happy for him to meet with our customers due to his professional and friendly nature.
We’re always blown away by the calibre of Matt’s work and the way in which he perfectly showcases our work with ease. His passion for his craft is second to none, and this is always apparent in his work. There’s nobody else that we’d rather work with.”

"Having worked with Matt Cant for over five years on interiors shoots for national interiors magazines all over the UK, I find his work to be of the highest calibre. Not only is he fantastically talented as an interiors photographer - his use of lighting to frame the shot is second to none - but, his ability to work under pressure, often on locations that present real challenges to the shoot, is unrivaled.
His ability to bring every aspect of a successful photo shoot to the table means that I know our clients will have the most professional experience whilst Matt still manages to put them at ease which is essential when shooting in reader homes.
Working on location demands quick thinking, and a calm, unflappable manner, as well as being friendly and approachable. Matt displays all of these qualities alongside a passion and talent for photography making him my go-to interiors photographer every time."

"Working with Matt over the last 3 years has been instrumental to our growth as a company and development of our online presences. His flawless magazine quality images have been the basis of our award packs that have seen us nominated or win 7 times at all our industries major awards in the last 12 months at a national and international level. He is professional and prompt and brings a level of experience that needs no management which makes for amazing results with no effort required on our part. Perfect!"

"Matt's brilliant creative work speaks for itself - but he's also great to work with, bringing a 'can-do' approach to even the trickiest of commissions. "

"Matt is a delight to work with, he is always coming up with new way's of working and certainly implements his experience at large photo shoots. Great work, great person and great photography."

"Matt was a breath of fresh air to work with. The whole team worked really well together and the results were a really well executed and delivered shoot with results which both myself at the Agency and the Client were really pleased with."
Gus Wick - Business Director - adam&eveDDB - http://www.adamandeveddb.com/
"Wonderful, inventive, enthusiastic and convivial with a magical breadth of talents. Our business has lots of talented, thoughtful people – Matt is among the best of them. Amazingly, Matt also gets stuff done and makes things happen - sometimes against spectacular odds. Location photography isn't an exact science – conditions aren't always perfect – clients occasionally have off-days – Art directors are short-fused, unrealistic, pernickety, demanding and flighty – it's our job.
If you've ever worked with Matt – you'll know precisely what I mean. If you haven't, find an excuse to hire him. A renaissance man with understanding and imagination in equal measure. You’ll think there has to be a downside somewhere. There is. He's a Liverpool supporter."

"We hired Matt to do a shoot in our brand new contemporary art galleries as part of the new National Museum of Art in Cardiff. Matt was creative and enthusiastic with a warm approach to everyone involved and produced a wonderful set of photographs which helped us in promoting the new galleries."

"I've worked with Matt several times on projects for my jewellery business. Besides being a great photographer he's lovely to work with and shares his knowledge generously. We did a fashion shoot with a model for my brand and the whole team were completely professional and didn't mind too much being at a Welsh beach location in January! The results were stunning. He's also shot my pieces for a brochure and my website, again I was extremely happy with the images he produced. I'm just looking forward to the next project! Absolutely recommend Matt's services, his photography is beautiful."
Kate Dumbleton - Jewellery Designer - www.katedumbleton.com/
"We hired Matt twice to do the photos for our brochures (winter and summer) and also for our website. He realized an excellent job, had great ideas and had an excellent contact with all the people we were shooting. I would recommend Matt to people who needs his service."
