For years Matthew existed in front of the camera. Modeling and acting were his artistic expression and what happened behind the lens and the lights was a mystery. Eventually, curiosity overcame him and the allure of capturing images took hold, giving him an even greater control of his imagination. Perhaps it was this time with the camera trained on him that developed in him a facility for motivating his subjects to achieve the emotional states, physical forms, and expressive nuances of his photographs. He is fond of the relationships he has developed with his subjects and always seeks to make sessions a creative workspace where his ideas mix with theirs to make fresh, collaborative art.
Matthew Finley has studied the past five years with Creative Photography Workshops in Los Angeles.
