Box of Matches

ABOUT US

Box of Matches was born out of a passion 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!

As documentarians we focus on helping organisations capture the essence of their occasion. Stripping back from the hustle and bustle of a live event 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!

At the heart of every great product or service is a person; that ‘person’ is who we strive to show. Employing the eye of a journalist, producing imagery that projects you in an authentic way.

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

John Eldregde

1. Have a brief.
A brief does not have to be a long document, however, it does need to inform what you expect. How much coverage you require, how long the coverage should be and what the images would be used for. Most photographers would arrive well before start time but don’t assume (we would usually arrive at least 1 hour before an event).

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.
