You’d think gay cinematographers would be more common, but Matthew finds himself an outlier in the Cinematography community as a gay man. It's this unique perspective that has found his work accepted into Cannes, Tribeca, Frameline, Outfest and more film festivals while also receiving both Gotham and Queerty award nominations. After attending the American Film Institute Conservatory's MFA Cinematography program Matthew traveled around the world serving as the Director of Photography on many projects including feature and short films, documentaries, music videos, series and has been the cinematographer on projects with James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Youtube stars Davey Wavey and Brian Jordan Alvarez. His ability to lead a team while bringing a unique perspective makes Matthew a cinematographer to watch out for.
I believe that images have the power to tell stories more than any other medium. I believe through camera and lighting I am on set to serve the director's vision as faithfully as possible. I believe in creating a space where the level of craftsmanship emboldens others to feel safe and secure in the power of the image they are helping portray. Nothing satisfies me more than to see the reaction on a Director's face as I bring their vision to life.
