Box of Matches

ABOUT US

Box of Matches was born out of a pasion to help people and organisations project their authentic self to the world. We specialise in event photography for the corporate world. For us, it’s about capturing the buzz of the day and helping people see the personal side of the organisations we serve, covering events in London, Essex and Kent.

If you are making plans for an event do get in touch and lets see how we can help.

WHY // Our Passion!

We see our selves as documentarians helping individuals and companies show their authentic self to their audience. Stepping back from the camera and lights to uncover the heart that beats within the vision.

WHAT // Your Story!

One question we ask everyone we work with is – What’s your story? Humans have an inmate connection to story, which is why we try to find that emotional connection between what you do and why it matters to you.

HOW // Express Yourself!

There’s a person behind every great product or service, thats the person we strive to capture. With the eye of a journalist and the heart of a storyteller giving the right balance of care and creativity.

"When we begin to offer not merely our gifts but our true selves, that is when we become powerful."

John Eldregde

Testimonials

Learning to See

Recently, I watched a few courses on the Masterclass Series; Filmmaking by Martin Scorsese and Photography by Annie Leibovitz, one thing they both mentioned is learning how to see. This actually curios as to how I see. What do I like visually? What is my visual taste? I decided to go London South Bank, take a tonne of photos and work out what I like visually. I had a rough sense of it but I wanted to articulate it.
