These conversations give you an insight into the lives of creative professionals, from photographers and publishers, to editors, designers and conservationists. I have worked with many talented friends and colleagues and unsung heroes working in the visual arts so I decided to set about interviewing these individuals, to shed new light on what goes on behind the scenes and what it means to be a creative freelancer and make it work as a career. One thing for sure is that all of them have a unique story to tell and this is my chance to share these stories with you.

Highly recommend!

Cracking podcast which is informative, interesting and thought provoking. Each guest has a different perspective and a personal story to share. Matt is also experienced and talented in his own right, so overall, loads of great content!

An excellent insight into the lives of wildlife professionals

I’ve really enjoyed working my way through the backlog of episodes of Matt’s podcast.

His interviewing technique is relaxed and easy to listen to, and this approach has his guests open up in a way that gives a very intimate insight (often coming with excellent advice) on what it is like to work with wildlife communications.

I’ve derived lots of information and inspiration from Matt’s podcast, and will continue to be an avid listener for as long as he deigns to make them!
