Dr Matthew Sweetwood was Warnborough College Ireland’s second ever PhD candidate. His Ph.D was in Computer Science and he focused on creating a specialised automated solution for a wholesale photographic company. This was in the late 90s. Today, Matthew is a successful speaker, author and photography expert.
Matthew comes from a professional camera background with three generations of his family now involved in running the Unique Photo company. Unique Photo boasts not just being the largest superstore in New Jersey but it is also a place for the advancement of the profession. Through its “Unique University” program, it delivers a comprehensive selection of courses in all sorts of photographic disciplines, targeted at beginners through to experts.
Matthew is well-known for his role as an advocate for single fathers bringing up children alone. With his own experience of raising five children as a single parent, he is a passionate and outspoken writer and speaker on the difficulties faced by men. The issues he talks about include legal, social, and academic prejudices – even dating tips for single fathers! His experiences will form part of a forthcoming memoir.
He is a regular contributor to prominent American news networks including Fox News, NBC and CBS. Unsurprisingly, he counts photography amongst his hobbies, alongside his keen following of the NJ Devils Hockey Team and racing BMWs.
