Featured Photographer: Matt Evans

22 April 2014

Hi I’m Matt Evans, a Sydney based amatuer photographer and I love to get up early to shoot the sunrise.

Moving to the city 10 years ago from the country town of Bathurst, It’s only recently (January 2013) that I picked up an SLR camera, and since then photography has quickly become an obsession for me.

The thing I love about photography is getting outdoors and just being able to sit back and relax for an hour or so while the sun and sea do their thing. In the last year I have seen more of Sydney’s coastline than I had seen in the previous 9 years. Discovering and photographing some of the more unknown spots around Sydney, particularly the Eastern Suburbs is what I enjoy the most. Everyone’s seen a million photos of Bondi and the Harbour, and as beautiful as they are, I like to focus more on the little boutique beaches and seascape locations around the east because of the seclusion and peacefulness they offer.

This year I am doing a project I call ‘Sunny Side Up’, with the intent to shoot the sunrise each and every morning, which you can follow along on my website below. I try to mix it up each month with a different theme, eg Fisheye February, to help keep the creativity and interest flowing. So far I’m 3 months in and still discovering new spots and absolutely loving it.

Nothing starts the day better than a beautiful sunrise over one of Sydney’s amazing seaside landscapes.
