Who Is Plainview Media?

Plainview Media is me, Matthew Lumb. Hello.

Following 15 years working in the financial sector across a wide range of IT, media and creative projects, I set up Plainview Media in 2012. My career experience covers photography, filming, editing, webcasting, video conferencing, web design, events, conference room design as well as technical IT solutions.

Now, as a freelancer, I can concentrate on my lifelong interest in photography and video and use my career experience to provide a professional, educated and organised service to my clients.

Please drop me a mail at hello at plainviewmedia dot com you’d like to know more.

How Can Plainview Media Help You?

You can see a selection of clients here. I cover all sizes and industries, from independent music venues to event companies to global financial institutions.


From headshots to live events to interiors to landscapes, whether it’s moody and dramatic, bright and professional or something inbetween, I will work with you to ensure the results fit your requirements. See the galleries for examples.


You can see Plainview Media’s showreel here.

From corporate updates to music videos to live events, I can record, edit and produce HD content for use wherever you need it – in presentations, on your website, for home viewing. If you are in the financial services, my background allows me to work fast to provide what you need, with minimal explanation of the terms and processes involved. For more details, click here.

For non-corporate work, take a look through the Music Videos page.

Other Services
