Matthew Donaldson

Matthew Donaldson is a director and photographer whose career began by assisting Norman Parkinson, Lord Snowdon and Terence Donovan. With this wealth of experience, Matthew went freelance and soon had his first commercial studio set up in Charlotte Street, London. Working internationally, continuously in demand, and notoriously shooting some form of image every day, Matthew is a highly respected and very prolific fashion and beauty photographer. His clean crisp style has lent itself to many campaigns for clients including Sony, Harrods, Sony Ericsson, Kvadrat, Swarovski, Coca Cola and The Macallan.

The short film above is a recent collaboration between Matthew, internationally renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight, make-up artist Val Garland and music by Zero 7. As his model daughter Lily spins 360 degrees, her hair buffeted by four wind machines, Donaldson stretches two seconds into two hypnotic minutes, capturing every exquisite movement at 1,000 frames per second.

Touch Wood

This amazing mobile telephone advert features a giant wooden marimba, hand-built in the woods of Kyushu, Japan. As the ball rolls down the installation in this 3-minute video, Bach’s Cantana 147 is played out.

This is the stunningly epic promo for Woodkid – Iron, directed by the artist himself, Yoann Lemoine.
