Matt Cole

I am a wildlife and nature photographer based in Leicestershire, UK. I enjoy photographing any form of wildlife but I have a particular passion for macro photography, predominantly of insects but also of fungi.

My images have been published in BBC Wildlife Magazine, Outdoor Photography magazine, the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times and numerous Wildlife Trust publications, amongst others. I also have an invited gallery on the BBC Wildlife magazine website.

In recent years my images have had some success in leading photography competitions including the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and the British Wildlife Photography Awards. The Awards page provides more information.

I am represented by the FLPA stock agency (search for matt_cole).


I am also a contributor to the Meet Your Neighbours photography project created and led by Niall Benvie and Clay Bolt. A large proportion of my images for this project will be available through Nature Picture Library.
