Photo Assistant

Matt Perez

People, Portrait, Fashion, Beauty, Stillife, Food, Landscape

Know How:

Very comfortable working with Canon bodies and lenses, as I have been using Canon since I first picked up a camera. Also well versed in Fujifilm systems. Happy to work with any other DSLR or mirrorless system as well. Loves to work in a studio or on-location setting.

I am experienced in lighting systems from Speedotron, Profoto, Godox/Flashpoint, Neewer and any standard strobe/monolight systems. Will quickly and happily learn a new system, however. I am constantly striving to

learn more and more across every aspect of photography.

I have worked with food/drinks for over 3 years and have very good attention to detail when it comes to lighting, shadows, highlights and even plating. Works side by side with photographer to help make the best photo we possibly can to exceed the client's expectations.

All in all, I love photography and care about the craft, technicalities, and art of creating an image. This is why I do it.
