Dune Rats music photography Matt Walter

“Matt will always be our favourite photographer and person to have at shows not only because of the epic picture he takes but also his ability to blend into the show while doing it. He always brings an insanely positive atmosphere to the night which is a must whenever doing anything with Dunies.”

Danny BeusGuitarist and lead vocalist, Dune Rats

“There is never a vibe that isn’t captured with such clarity. Matt knows our band and shows better than we do ourselves and never misses that perfect moment.”
