About

Mat_About

I was born in Philly, left for the Big Apple at the age of 18 and have been here pretty much ever since. 

After graduating from Pratt Institute in 2001 I spent many years carrying cases, and setting up lights for other photographers. About 6 years ago I decided to carry my own cases and set up my own lights.  

I've worked with celebrities, high end fashion houses, top ad agencies, and Fortune 500 companies. I've hung out of hot air balloons, jumped from planes, driven fast cars, snowboarded on multiple continents and ridden my bike down the center lane of 5th Avenue. I also brew my own beer. 

Two years ago my wife and fellow photographer Erin Wigger and I joined forces and created Swig Productions, a full service production house to handle our video and multimedia shoots. Our talented production crew can produce pink flamingos in December and snow in July. They are the backbone to every shoot, allowing us to focus on our clients and our imagery. 

If you've got a project that you think I'd be interested in, get in touch. I'd love to chat or just share a beer. 

Cheers!
