About Matthew


Bio

My first experience with my mother's video camera changed my life for ever. From an early age I knew what I wanted to do, and that was to tell stories using moving pictures. Filmmaking is not only my passion, it's my life and my livelihood. Today I work as a freelance filmmaker and photographer and though the industry is tough and competitive, I am so happy that I am able to do what I love.

My first experience with my mother's video camera changed my life for ever. From an early age I knew what I wanted to do, and that was to tell stories using moving pictures. Filmmaking is not only my passion, it's my life and my livelihood. Today I work as a freelance filmmaker and photographer and though the industry is tough and competitive, I am so happy that I am able to do what I love.

What led me to pursue tutoring on the side, stems from my experience working as an instructor for RED Digital Cinema, an Orange County based digital movie camera manufacturer, for their REDucation camera classes. I found I was very capable of teaching others what I knew and loved doing it.

Whether you need help learning to use your camera (video or photography), the basics of photography and image capturing, learning how to manually set a proper exposure, lighting or painting with light, learning to shoot on 35mm film, or even video editing I would love to share my passion with you.

I work professionally as a freelance filmmaker and photographer having real world experience in the industry. I also have teaching/instructing experience working as an instructor for RED.
