matt payne

Photographer and cinematographer, currently based in Saigon.


A primary school teacher from London, Matt is engaged primarily with capturing moments that naturally reflect people in their environments, their relationships with each other and their wider roles and functions in a community.

He is also intrigued by perception; how every depiction of an object or space can be altered radically and portrayed so differently after a slight change of angle or point-of-view, particularly from an aerial perspective.

Alongside that, using mostly aerial footage, Matt endeavours to elicit emotion through moving image and cinematography, with each short focusing on a specific location or a collection of moments accompanying music or sound with the aim to evoke a feeling.

Most recently, Matt has had selected images and work exhibited at a ‘TedX’ event in Ho Chi Minh and has had video and images used for documentaries and commercial campaigns.

If you were interested buying a physical print, in working collaboratively on a project, wanted to share or swap creative ideas or if you wanted to use an image for a commercial purpose, please get in touch.
