Matt Ower. 20. Born in NZ. Based in Melbourne. Will travel.


Matty’s life with a camera began in the captivating landscape of New Zealand when he was fourteen. Living in Sydney’s Northern Beaches inspired him to turn his lens to the surf culture that surrounded him daily. Through connections and networking skills he soon found himself working for one of the country’s largest aerial production companies. Matty is commissioned to shoot from helicopters and planes all over Australia and continues to do so today.
Matty’s interest in automotive advertising grew after assisting some of Australia’s most prominent car photographers in the industry.
Endorsed by Mazda for his final folio, Matty has produced a lifestyle advertising campaign featuring a selection of their latest models. The body of work has been heavily influenced by his experience and passion in the advertising and automotive design market. Matty’s next stop is New York City in late 2015.
