My name is Matthew Vandeputte
I am a Belgian Australian living in London and Sydney. I am a timelapse photographer, a youtuber, a public speaker, an educator and an author.
After discovering timelapse photography 9 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.
The majority of my work is commissioned by brands and destinations. I get hired to create unique, highly engaging visual content for ads or campaigns. One of my specialisations is extremely fast turnaround timelapse projects. With proper preparation and a highly efficient workflow a video can go live mere hours after the timelapse shoot has ended. Recent clients for these types of projects have been Canon Australia, Tourism Australia and Tourism Queensland.
I love sharing my story. A story of a hobby that over time transformed into a fulfilling and lucrative career. Over the last few years I've been invited by a number of organisations to talk about where I started, where I've been and where I'm going. I love talking about my life and passions.

My username across all social media platforms is @matjoez. Over the years I've amassed a following of close to 200000 people. These people follow me for my authenticity, my work, my sharing of knowledge and my personality. 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 202 I published Passive Income For Creatives, my latest e-book about setting up a passive income system. Click on the image to check out my store.
