This talk, lasting 1 hour, accompanied by recent imagery, films, and live music, is focused on South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, in area known as "The Valley". Working as a Wildlife Photographer and Filmmaker for Mfuwe Lodge and The Bushcamp Company, Matt will introduce you to this incredibly unique, and untouched area of Wild Africa, where the wildlife experiences are literally second to none. From Elephants walking through reception, to the sky full of Carmine Bee-eaters and Lions and Leopards round every corner, you will be treated to a wonderful evening full of some of the most iconic species found in Africa, including some where not much known is about them! Conservation is also a key theme to this talk, with the Trophy Hunting ban being lifted in Zambia recently, there is no better time, to promote Conservation Though Tourism, and Matt will talk in depth about the issues, and problems that surround The Valley. Matt will also share his experiences of what it is like to work and live in Wild Africa, and give tips of how to get into the industry.
Growing up in the background of music and theatre, I am an exerienced speaker and always love to give public talks. My talks are flexible in their timing and content and can be very easily suited for your needs. Each talk (depending on the venue) is accompanied with my own live music too. I have recently been giving talks in the UK, Africa, and the West Indies to Schools, Camera clubs, Small Theatres and Safari Camps.
'The theatre was filled with "ooohhs" and "aahhs", and what a delightful talk Matt gave us. He gave us such a fascinating introduction into the weird and wonderful life he leads!'
"Matt took to the stage with such character, and we seriously loved his animal impressions! Had us in fits of laughter! So well spoken, stunning and powerful images, also giving us a emotionally shocking insight into the Conservation issues of these amazing areas. Very beautiful music, and a thoroughly entertaining evening! We want him back!!"
"At just 20 years old, Matt is an impressive example of someone driven and committed to a cause that he believes passionately about, and we look forward to welcoming him back to speak to us this Christmas."
