When I started photography, I didn’t think I would have anything attached to the name Matt Warrell. Over the past few years I’ve had the name Matt Warrell published in publications I never imagined including VICE Magazine and TIME. On 1 July I started the new financial year with a new name because I married my wonderful partner and took her last name instead of asking her to take mine. Matt Warrell became Matt Walter.
I’m finally doing it. I’m holding a solo photography exhibition.
I’ve had a great response to my announcement that Friday will see the release of a signed Ceres print. Friday is the same day that Ceres tour kicks off! Coincidence? Nope. On Friday, me and the guys are going to take a photo especially for this tour. It’s only going to be sold for this tour, there’s 10 available, and so if you want it on your wall you better be quick to grab one!
Skegss hit Brisbane as part of their tour to support their new EP, Holiday Food.
The Smith Street Band brought their ‘More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me’ tour to Brisbane on Saturday and Sunday at The Tivoli.
Against Me! returned to Australia to tour their seventh album, Shape Shift With Me.
A little while ago I gave away a Violent Soho photo print to anyone who signed up to my mailing list. I don’t even spam. I haven’t actually sent an email to anyone on the list since they signed up!
If you’ve been living under a rock, Dune Rats released a hell of an album on 20 January 2017. Hysteria Magazine wrote about the album:
Wil Wagner took to The Zoo’s stage to play solo songs, early The Smith Street Band songs and songs from the upcoming album, ‘More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me.’ I’m not good at words, so here are some photos of before, during and after.
Unify Gathering has been running for a few years now, but this was my first time photographing the festival. Violent Soho being on the bill made it a must-shoot festival, but the entire lineup was stellar. Trophy Eyes, Thy Art Is Murder, Alexisonfire, Northlane, Every Time I Die, Letlive and more filled the bill.
