The Beginning

by Matt on January 5, 2013

There’s no reason for this post, other than to share a few images. We spent the first few days of this year in Palm Springs where it was chilly yet sunny. We ate, walked, picked oranges and grapefruit, went to the movies, napped (several times!) and slept late. I can’t think of a better way [...]


Right On Target

by Matt on November 15, 2012

This past summer I photographed some delicious holiday items for Target. As in that Target. As in one of my favorite retailers. And can I tell you something? Working with them was every bit as fun and exciting as I thought it would be. Such wonderful people. The signs are up now, if you’re in [...]


Some Personal Work

by Matt on July 18, 2012

While so very much is happenin’ I thought I’d give you this: an afternoon of playing around at the studio. The light was phenomenal and the props from upstairs were calling my name. See you soon!


Top Ten Halifax Moments

by Matt on June 19, 2012

I just returned from 5 glorious days along the Eastern coast of Canada, Nova Scotia to be exact. But you might already know this. In those days I visited Halifax, Dartmouth, the Annapolis Valley, Sambro, Ketch Harbor, Wolfville, and many points inbetween as part Canada’s Explore Like A Local campaign. In fact, I was one [...]

Gabriel, I want to say thank you for lowering your standards by agreeing to photograph me. Second, there is an event coming up [...]


Winter Citrus, Revisited

by Matt on January 5, 2012

This is a story about winter citrus. More specifically, it’s a story about finding a day to play in a photo studio, complete with beautiful props and gorgeous styling. It’s a story dedicated to free form (there are no recipes here!), to abundant light, to taking it slow and easy during the new year, but [...]


A new banner for 2012!

by Matt on December 29, 2011

Well folks, we’re about to say goodbye to another year and I can’t think of a better way to ring it in than with a new banner! You know I like to update things now and then, and just the other day we finished a big citrus story at the studio for ourselves (yes, self-assignments [...]


Exploring Like A Local: Richmond, BC

by Matt on November 20, 2011

All these 15+ hour trips to Asia and it’s been less than 3 hours away this whole time? Alright, ok, please don’t get out a map to prove me wrong. I’m being silly and I realize that nothing can compare to actually spending time eating from Hawker Stalls in Singapore or exploring a fish market [...]
