Matt Brandon has a special eye for portraits of people set in their natural environment. Matt shoots often for international faith-based NGOs and nonprofits. He speaks English, Urdu, and Hindi. Having lived in South Asia for more than 14 years, Matt has a cross-cultural understanding and sensitivity. This allows him to effectively work in both his client's world and the world of the subject he is shooting. Matt's work was featured in a traveling exhibition sponsored by the Indian Government for Indian embassies around the world. His images have also been used by international clients such as Partner Aid International, NeighborWorks, the BBC, Honda Motor Corporation, and the Bombardier Transport Corporation.
Matt has been shooting pictures since he was 10 years old with his father's Cannonet QL Rangefinder. He and his dad processed his first images in a darkroom built under the basement stairs. Captured by a basic photography course in high school, he went on to pursue photography in depth at university.
