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!
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. If you are organizing an event and are looking for a speaker, please get in touch via the contact form below.
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.
