Matt Holyoak has made a name for himself as one of the leading portrait and fashion photographers in the UK, working for magazines such as Another Magazine, Elle, Harpers Bazaar and Rolling Stone.


Matt recently visited Motel to shoot a really interesting concept with smoke machines, forest backdrops, and Celebrity Big Brother presenters Rylan Clark and Emma Willis. The energy and excitement on set was infectious, and it quickly spread across the studio.

We're big fans of Matt's work here at Motel. His portraits always use light beautifully to connect with the subject.

We especially love the images he produces using intricate set designs and backdrops, such as the advertising campaign for ITV's Titanic series. His clever use of composition, eye trickery and creative camera skills add multiple layers to his images, creating a narrative. 

Matt also works with moving image and has started work on his first photographic book.
