Matt Emmett is a multi-award-winning photographer and Pentax Ambassador, who has a passion for exploring and photographing some of Europe's most at risk architectural heritage.
He shoots the majority of his work in abandoned places including man-made structures, and has photographed in locations as diverse as church chapels, power stations, bath-houses, villas and cooling towers to name but a few. More recently, Matt visited Lanzarote, where he photographed underground lava tubes in the central wilderness area of the island.
Matt has many years experience shooting in unusual and sometimes potentially dangerous locations (he’s an experienced caver). His amazing photography serves as a record of some unfortunately disappearing places, but on a positive level, those that are also being regenerated after many years of neglect. He has shot on a range of Pentax cameras, including the K-3, and K-3II. He is currently putting the K-1 and his favourite Pentax lenses through their paces.
Matt uses the following equipment for his photography:
