In Matt I have found a collaborator who shares a sense of my vision as a cultural producer of capturing dance in motion, inviting the viewer to share the experience of performance as if seeing it live. His acuteness to detail is so sensible, that he is able to frame movement that communicates a taste of what the performance is trying to achieve. Matt has a willingness and openness, to unconditionally support any creative team he is apart of. I look forward to continuing future dialogue with him in developing our working relationship.

Matt Cawrey has an incredible eye for performance photography, whether an intimate drama, a large scale show, a festival performance or a dynamic dance production, Matt has a way of finding the angles you never knew were there and capturing the essence of the piece through his images. He is my go-to photographer, book him today.

Matt’s photography captured the energy and breadth of our event fantastically. He has a great eye for detail, documenting wonderful ‘moments’, as well as providing high quality documentation and wider imagery of the event - which was no mean feat...with musicians, workshops, stage performances, artwork...outdoors and in! He was incredibly dedicated to ensuring he covered everything, and turned the photos of the event round quickly, which was really helpful for our marketing and social media! I would highly recommend Matt, and we will certainly use him again in the future!

Matt has one of the keenest visions in photography I’ve ever encountered. Epic, personal and deeply human, his work never ceases to astound me, and he is always my first port of call when embarking on rehearsals for a new project. An integral, organic part of any company he joins, Matt has never failed to capture moments of true intimacy and beauty. And beyond his incredible work - work that speaks for itself, far more eloquently than the sum of my words - he is one of the finest collaborators in the business. And I look forward to working with this dear friend time and time again in future.
