Monty has a career’s worth of experience working worldwide, shooting dramatic and impactful photography. He specialises in Industry, Engineering, Science and Energy, creating unique brand-building images that make clients stand out.
His approach to every project is to spend time observing and planning, working with the client to understand their needs, and goes to great lengths to make every project a success. Depending on the shoot and the environment, he will work with his camera tethered to his laptop for greater accuracy, or sometimes handheld. Monty is currently shooting with Nikon's most advanced DSLR camera, the D850 see a review of the 850 here and a suite of specialist Sigma art lenses. He also has a beautiful purpose-built studio.
Monty builds spontaneity and drama into all his pictures. He always works with an assistant, and there’s a small team back in the studio making sure everything goes seamlessly. He likes to meet in person, loves generating ideas, and prefers to visit locations and recce whenever possible. He is extremely experienced working in difficult, noisy and challenging environments, and it’s his respectful and friendly demeanour which creates an atmosphere for success; he is able to curate - and then capture - pride, inspiration, and excellence, in the most sterile or industrial of settings.
Monty’s self-commissioned work is syndicated by Image Source to Getty Images, you can see them here on Imagesource and many other libraries worldwide. He has over 12,000 specialist images fully released, available to buy. He is always on the look-out for interesting locations and processes and welcomes collaborative project suggestions.
