Matt is an experienced and highly creative photographer in the Southern California area. His motivation for creating stunning images comes directly from the people he works with, the stories they tell, and the reward of being able help make memories. Matt has experience mainly in natural light portraits, but has done extensive work with studio lighting as well. He is an expert in post-processing and creating images for print/web formats. He has also recently earned his Commerical Drone Pilot license from the Federal Aviation Administration.
I love to meet people and find out what they do, or hear them tell a story or two about their life. That's my main motivator for staying in the business, in an environment where there are so many photographers out there. I also love the outdoors and nature, and photography allows me to capture the beauty of it - even when it may not necessarily be the subject I'm shooting.
Shooting in natural light is my expertise and I really enjoy shooting in beautiful locations. I also like doing creative shoots where there is a costume or some sort of theme (especially in post-processing).
As an automotive photographer, I was embedded heavily in the industry and a lot of my images would be featured in other publications and websites.
I am an aviation geek and an avid bass fisherman.
