Brisbane Photographer Matthew Hamm

Hi there! I'm Matthew Hamm & I'm the owner & photographer at Belle-Vous Photography. I specialise in taken stunning boudoir photography, bride portraits.


Boudoir Photographer Based In Brisbane, Australia


Personal Philosophy

I'm a friendly, laid back, honest, loyal, dedicated and no bull shit type of person. I believe in equality for all. No matter skin colour, sexual orientation, age, appearance, ethnicity, gender, nationality and religion.


Photography style

I specialise in boudoir photography for women who want classy, intimate & timeless photos. I don't go chasing fleeting trends that will seem cliché in 5 years from now. My photographic approach is relaxed while also being able to tell a story using raw natural emotions. This means I'll capture incredible photos that you will cherish forever.


How I got into photography

I have always been fascinated with photography. When I was a kid, it all seemed like magic to me. It wasn't till after high school I started to learn more about how photography works. Back in the early days of Youtube, I would binge-watch photography videos. In 2013 I to quit my lame hospitality job and pursue photography and enrol in a full-time photography course. For three years of my course, I set a goal for myself to take one good photo every day rain or shine. This time was one of the happiest times of my life. It was when I discovered a new form of creative expression, and I learned what type of person I wanted to be.


Why I shoot boudoir

I consider my work to be an expression of my belief that everyone is beautiful & no one deserves to being told otherwise. Boudoir photography is my passion; It's the most rewarding thing I do! I love doing special things for others and making their lives just that little bit more amazing.
