With sadness I have to announce that Matthew "Matty" Brown has passed on. I don't know all the in's and outs but his facebook page is full of it. Matt was a larger than life character, his Shackled Maidens work attracted numerous models and I'm sure was well supported. A clever, talented and fun loving man who I know will be missed by many. Rest in Peace Matt

I didn't know him personally at all, but I still feel the need to pay my respects to a very talented photographer.

I wish any love ones he's left behind all the best. Having lost my mother a few years back I know just how painful it can be to lose someone special.

Thank you very much for posting. Sad news indeed.

Matt, in the days when he was running his commercial studio, gave me my introduction to studio photography and my first lessons in lighting.

We have lost a character, a talented photographer and an inspiration.

I am sad to hear of his passing. I remember him as a man who was generous with his time and knowledge of photography and the industry. RIP Matty
