Who is....

Matt Watson

An ambitious Sports, Editorial and Commercial photographer based in Southampton, UK. With a degree in Photojournalism, the fast paced world of press photography beckoned. Starting as a trainee photographer for regional newspaper The Southern Daily Echo, spending almost 7 years covering everything from hard news, sport and lifestyle, to food, travel, Royal visits and Events. During this time I was nominated for the 2013 Press Photographer of The Year Award, finishing as a runner up. My love for photography spawned while practicing my favourite hobby – BMX riding. When not on the bike, I was taking pictures of those around me taking part in the sport. This still remains a solid passion and a driving force in my photography. Now currently the Senior Club Photographer for Southampton FC, a Premier League football team based on the South coast of England. Relishing the challenge to produce the highest quality of photography on a daily basis. Supplying print based content as well as in digital forms such as the club's website and social media channel's, to go out to hundred's of thousands of its fans across the globe.
