About Tamar Photography

Hello, I'm Matt. I am the 'talent' behind Tamar Photography.

Tamar Photography is my showcase for my Wedding, Portrait and Commercial services, which I provide for Cornwall and Devon.

I also love shooting fine art landscapes. You can find my landscape work, and details of workshops on my sister website: www.MattWhorlowPhotography.com

I have been into photography for 20 years. I read Cybernetics at university (don't ask!), but once free and finally with access to money and a car I soon found my passion. It felt right straight away. I always had an overactive imagination, and in photography, Imagination is absolutely key; the ability to 'see' the potential of a shot before even picking the camera up.

I like to celebrate the fun and quirky side of life in my photography – a cheeky look between bridesmaids, the look of love between bride and groom or the tear in the eye of the mother-in-law. These special vignettes in life which may otherwise go unnoticed. It is so rewarding to capture these moments.

In 2006, I followed my dream, and moved to Cornwall. Saltash to be precise. Only just in Cornwall perhaps, but this location does suit me well. Dartmoor is only a few minutes away, and I have over 100 miles of coastline throughout Cornwall and southern Devon within easy reach – including sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and a score of quaint harbour towns. So much to feast the senses - and the camera on!
