My name is Matthew Vandeputte
I am a Belgian Australian living in London. I am a timelapse photographer, a youtuber, a public speaker, an educator and a self published author.
After discovering timelapse photography 10 years ago, I went on to specialise in the 'niche within a niche' called hyperlapse photography. In 2014 the Australian department of immigration granted me a Distinguished Talent PR visa for my work as a hyperlapse photographer. Good stuff. I've since taken the pledge and am now officially an Australian citizen!
The majority of my commercial timelapse and video work is commissioned by brands and destinations. They hire me to create unique, highly engaging visual content for advertisements or social media campaigns. Recent clients include Google, Microsoft, Samsung, Canon, Lumix, Ford and many more.
I love sharing my story. A story of a hobby that got out of hand and transformed into a fulfilling and lucrative career. Over the last few years I've been invited by a number of organizations and conferences to talk about where I started, where I've been and where I'm going. I love talking about my life and passions.

People online know me by my username @matjoez. Over the last few years I've amassed a following of close to 200,000 people. These people follow me for my authenticity, my work, and the photography knowledge I share. Every now and then brands reach out to me to try and reach out to my followers. Depending on the brand and budget, this deal goes ahead and I turn into an 'social media influencer'. Fun stuff.
I have published two e-books about timelapse photography. These books contain all the info you need about planning, shooting and processing the highest possible quality timelapse footage. In March 2020 I published my third e-book: Passive Income For Creatives, which teaches you a framework to set up a passive income system. Click on the image to check out my online store.
