Honoured to be joined by our This is Reportage Overall Photographer of the Year for 2023 today: The one and only Hollie Mateer! Not only was Hollie our POTY on our wedding site, but she was also the no.1 UK family photographer on our sister-site, This is Reportage: Family, and we talk about both documentary wedding and family work on today’s episode, including:

  • the moment she found out she had won Overall Photographer of The Year on TiR,
  • the story behind her unique ‘Chess’ Reportage Award,
  • how she captured her ‘Emergency’ Family Award,
  • why it’s important to not only show the good times when it comes to family photography,
  • photograping fellow TiR-member Chelsea Cannar’s wedding (and winning a Story Award with it, too!),
  • how she came to work alongside her husband, the fab Patrick Mateer,
  • why she loves the food at weddings (both from a hunger and photography perspective),
  • our Netflix synopsis game,
  • and so much more…

As always, you can listen on all the usual places: Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, iTunes/Apple Podcasts, YouTube, and below in this post:
