My name is Matt Bartolo.
Welcome to my creative hive.
I am a professional freelance photographer based in Sydney, Australia......for now.
My portfolio of work and expertise can be best described as a 'Jekyll & Hyde' scenario.
Let me explain....
'The photographic works of Dr Henry Jekyll'
Seeing the world through a lens has practically been my life since I discovered that I was better than average with a camera. Making striking images that stand out from the crowd has been the focus of all of my work from day dot, regardless of subject. It is my goal to one day land my dream job of traveling to all corners of the globe and capturing unique images for the world to see, in a true 'Matt Bartolo' style. I'm not entirely sure how to make that happen yet, but hopefully my images on this site will be enough to catch someone's eye and take notice, and perhaps put those images in front of the people that can make that dream a reality.
One can only dream right?
I have been providing commercial, corporate, promotional and event photographic services locally, interstate and internationally for over 10 years. Working with such a diverse clientele for so many years has allowed me to often think outside the box and offer solutions and positive results in a time frame which is second to none. I have been published in various publications, including the front cover of 'Pool & Design' and 'Poolside' magazine, as well as feature content and marketing material for numerous business and supplier websites including Britton Timbers, Accoya, Rogue Incorporated, Sydney Timber Supplies, Equilibrium Pools, Tasman K.B, Studio K and many, many more.
'The photographic works of Mr Edward Hyde'
Specializing in the weird, wonderful and bizarre, I offer my clients a unique perspective, experience and end product to most photographers. Being known as the 'go-to guy' for anything out of the ordinary is a badge of honour that I wear every day with pride. The sensual art of Kinbaku/Shibari (Japanese rope bondage) plays a large part of my alternative lifestyle photography work, and is an art form that I hold extremely close to my heart. Although I couldn't even tie my shoelaces, I can make magic through my lens.
I cut my teeth in this wonderful and ever-changing industry as the on staff photographer at Sexpo, the largest Sexual Health and Lifestyle Expo in the world from 2016-2019. I have been nominated, and selected as a finalist, for the prestigious 'Photographer of the Year' award at the 2019 X-Awards, held numerous gallery showings in Sydney and had works commissioned by some of the best art and event spaces in the country. I have co-founded various 'out of the ordinary' photographic entrepreneurial ventures along side my best mate, fellow urbex photographer and all round gentleman, The Lone Tog, which will see the light of day once this apocalypse is over and we're allowed outside again.
Let's work together
