Matthew Main Photography
Matthew is a photographer based in Port Isaac, North Cornwall. He runs his gallery out of Port Isaac pottery. Matthew was born and raised in Padstow. Just 5 miles (as the seagull flies) from where he lives now in Port Isaac. His interest in photography started at a young age with an old manual Canon film camera, taking pictures of friends surfing and the boats bobbing in Padstow harbour. He was inspired to become a professional photographer after winning several competitions as an amateur. His main inspiration is the rugged North Cornish coastline, with its dramatic landscapes and stunning wildlife. You can take a look at some of Matthews work by clicking here.
