In 2005 I achieved a BA (Hons) Photography Degree from the University of Derby. On completion I began operating as a commercial photographer while also working as a Photography lecturer at BTEC and A-Level at Derby College. In 2010 I launched Matthew Ling Photography to establish myself as an architectural and interiors photographer and have now produced photography for elite architects among many other clients in architecture, Interior design, commercial interiors and private property.

I have exhibited my architectural photography in New York and Miami, USA, Paris, France, and in the UK.
