Nick Royak – VP of Production
I was the one hiring our set photographer on the film and from the get go, Matt was my clear choice. From the first encounter he was enthusiastic, decisive, and clear in his communication. He worked hard to create a plan with me that fit both of our goals. Once he was on set he was a consummate professional, but perhaps more importantly he became an integrated part of our crew. The cast was very comfortable with his genuine and good natured attitude; he was able to adapt to match their personality and their work process. Matt became an important part of collecting some seriously effective media for our art and marketing materials.
His studio sessions with the cast were great because he was able to get a lot out of them but also covertly get what the producers needed. All of his set photos were inspiring, creative, and effective at capturing what was happening on camera. A lot of those pictures were valuable in conveying the progress of the movie to our studio heads. The BTS photos are human and endearing; they capture a lot of what the crew put into the film and will be a testament to them forever.
I’d recommend Matt for any set and for any situation. He’s a pro and his work is worth it. I can’t wait to work with him again.
Stanley Morgan – Director
Matt has such a wonderful energy that radiates throughout the set. He knows exactly how to get beautiful images without ever halting production. So great to work with.
Matt is a talented, hardworking & friendly on set stills photographer.
Having good quality stills is crucial for the publicity and promotion of a film. Matt has a unique way of capturing everything you need without being a hindrance. He is fast, creative but most importantly puts the actors at ease. I had nothing but compliments from my cast on how Matt made them feel relaxed and how easy he was to work with. He has a great eye and his behind the scenes photos are incredible. I’d love to have Matt on set with me on all my jobs.

Working with Matt is an absolute delight. He took our simple brief and took it to the next level creating stills that captured the joy and energy of the shoot and perfectly reflected the narrative of the film. His onset etiquette was brilliant and he works unobtrusively with the crew – you don’t notice he’s there until you need too and he never misses a thing. I would highly recommend Matt to work on any size production to add value and expertise. A fantastic set of production stills we delivered within 48hrs of the production.

Matt had the perfect mixture of professionalism and a relaxed presence. It was a pleasure to have him on set. Till this day people still compliment the stills he took of David Jonsson.
