Matt McDaniel

Owner – Lead Photographer

Owner and lead photographer, Matt McDaniel, has 13 years of experience in portraiture and commercial-focused photography. Since day one, his goal has been to create truly inspiring, visually engaging, original works. He equally enjoys photographing both commercial-minded photography as well as the personal side of portraiture (seniors, families, etc). With his expert knowledge in lighting, his shoots usually entail the deployment of a number of lights, ensuring the entire composition looks perfect. His photographic and lighting style produces dramatic and powerful images. If you are looking for a photographer who can capture you in a stylistic angle that best captures your character, he’s your guy. He runs in the opposite direction from the endless, overused, and cliche photo styles used by so many, and finds new and unique ways to capture his clients. His clients walk through the door asking for “something different,” and that’s exactly what they get. Commercial clients are presented with a product that effectively markets, and most importantly, adds value to their business ventures. Personal clients also take home very high caliber photographs to enjoy and share with friends and family.

Matt shoots for a number of local and world-wide businesses, with work having been published in numerous local and international magazines, marketing campaigns, and countless online sources.
