More about Matthew H....

What do you love about your job?

Being a photographer allows me the opportunity to enter people's lives and capture fleeting moments, whether that is a portrait session in my hometown or a news story in a conflict zone, every assignment allows new experiences and new challenges personally and professionally.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I worked with a woman doing a fashion blog and she approached me wanting images that were different than the normal fashion photos you see. We met and talked and I decided the best way to do these photographs was to go out at specific times of day as the style of the clothing related to them. Most of the portraits were done with natural light and in multiple locations as they related to the clothing. I tried to not just capture the aesthetics of the clothing but also the personality of the model and the personality of the clothing.
