Johnny first introduced Matt to the Light Cube concept with his 6-foot cube version. Inspired by the work of Irving Penn "Worlds in a Small Room" and Peter Lindbergh (especially the Omega Watch shoot with Cindy Crawford and her family), the Light Cube consists of 12 square pieces of aluminum tube—eight corners to hold them together and a variety of fabric to modify the light. The Cube is typically created outdoors and becomes effectively a small north-light studio (north light being soft and pleasing). Many different looks can be achieved simply by changing the fabric.
Matt has created Light Cubes for headshots, model portraits, graduation parties and even reproduced the "Lindbergh look" at special functions for the Omega store on Michigan Avenue.

It’s much easier than you might think to have your own corporate stock photography.
We spend so much effort building a successful company or brand and yet, all too often rely on stock imagery to try to show the world how we work. The selection process is tiresome and irritating and the result is status quo, diluted and inauthentic.
Matt makes it happen. He makes capturing great, authentic lifestyle imagery that showcases your people, your location(s), your values… well, he makes it all seem effortless – many even say it’s fun.
Natural and beautifully-lit images highlight and authentically represent your organization. Our professional make-up artist ensures that skin and hair are looking their best and this also means less re-touching after the fact.
Colleagues are often spread out geographically, working in different environments – yet consistency of style, personality and light are critical to presenting a unified brand or corporate image. Matt’s team is able to travel ensuring regular and rolling photo updates always adhere to agreed style guides.
Shooting live performances is a treat. For almost ten years, Matt has been photographing the annual benefits for Oak Park’s Beyond Hunger, featuring stars such as The Indigo Girls, John Hiatt and St. Paul and the Broken Bones.
