Making it as better as if you were actually in the venue.
Being also a photographer, Mat has a good perception and understanding of the importance of composition in each shot, and also the extreme importance of lighting.

Mat Ninat grew up in a family of photographers, starting the art of photography at the age of 9 when his mother bought him his first 35mm Nikon camera with a 50mm lens, developing his own black & white prints in the darkroom at home.
He then began to assist his step father John Carder Bush for his sister’s album photography (Kate Bush), setting up the Bowens lighting equipment in the studio, using Hasselblad and Mamiya medium format cameras.
Forging his own experience mainly doing portraits and landscape photography, he then really got into live concert photography, being a musician himself, and wanting to serve the musicians he likes best by perfectly understanding what was going on onstage, and trying to capture and immortalize that ton of emotion and energy that goes on during a performance.
