Character’s Description: Matthew is one of the most charming men you will ever meet. He is known for his amazing photographs that are professional enough to be shown within both the Daily Prophet and Witch Weekly Magazines. As long as he could remember, Matthew has loved taking photos. His love for photography grew when he began to attend Hogwarts and he found out that Wizard photos moved. This enthused him and made his habit turn into a passion.
Matthew is brave with a big heart. Unlike Maura Haymitch (his worse enemy), Matthew likes to show people the truth and will go through hardships to get the perfect shot. He wants people to see what a real news paper should be. When he photographs people and news scenes, he tries to catch the soul of the people in the scene or the scene’s mood of it’s own. People need to know what’s going on in the world around them, he thinks. Sometimes, while editing for the Daily Prophet, he puts little hints and clues to what’s really going on by bolding letters, words, and sentences in articles for people to figure out.
Though Matthew is in the business of the media, he still makes time to socialize. No, actually, Matthew uses his job as an opportunity to socialize and meet new people. He’s very social with the habit of being comfortable with talking about nearly anything someone throws at him. He’s not shy, never will be shy either. His job might be the thing that kills him.
