Robert Matt is a quiet, thoughtful man who sees more in any given moment than most. Part of that is in his nature. Part of it comes from the mindfulness meditation he practices.
The most recent stage of his photographic evolution finds Rob moving indoors to studio work.
How does one capture the beauty and soul of a person in a photographic portrait?
“My vision or point of view is...when I shoot, I need to see something I can tap into emotionally. That’s my jumping off point for every session.” By working indoors in a studio where I can control small incremental changes in the light, I distill the essential from the incidental, creating portraits that encourage the viewer to think higher, feel deeper, and see the beauty of the human soul.
Every click of my shutter I like to think is a part of me.
With honesty, respect and grace, Rob renders a photographic moment into a portrait that captures the human spirit.
Light makes photography.
But above all, know light.
Know it for all you are worth,
And you will know the key to photography.
