What you can expect

The team at the Observatory are passionate about design and content. For Campus 2018 they're putting all their resources at your disposal to show the work that goes into creating the incredible brand, as they have done with the Visit Jersey.

This workshop, which spans two half days, gives you experience of the full end-to-end production process and how a really successful content team comes together. If you're thinking about creating, working on building or actively in flow as content team, this workshop helps you consider how you work from every angle, led by a really passionate team of creatives.

Led by Matt at Studio M, you'll head out to discover #theislandbreak on a content mission to source and shoot incredible content to work actively on the continued development of VisitJersey's brand story. Not only will you have the chance to get hands-on shooting on location but you'll also look at the raft of critical steps leading up to a great shoot, sourcing location, casting real people to model, looking at light, conditions and permissions as well as the team and timing.

Back in the studio, you'll get to work with a brilliant post-production team who will show all the work that goes into preparing and finishing content for publishing. Here you'll look at how to approach the post-production to ensure the right brand fit but also getting formats right depending on audiences and channels.

Matt Porteous


As a young boy, Matt showed an unusual interest in photography and in his parent's photo albums. His first yellow, underwater Minolta accompanied him everywhere. It was through that simple lens that he learnt to capture the sublime beauty of nature.

Matt’s love and delight in his surroundings is evident in his work. He captures and reveals the expression and detail that is seldom evident to the naked eye. His images are alive with emotion and movement; he enters the world of that image and allows us a glimpse of his excitement, his humour, his soul.

His mentors, close friends and travel opportunities have all influenced his approach to his work over the past 20 years. He is passionate about his photography and always has been. The love he has for his work, the people and places that he encounters along the way is apparent in the detail and perspective, in the stories he tells in his photographs.

Matt Porteous has won UK awards for Sports, Travel and Wedding Photography....
