Hi there, I’m Matthew Spencer. I like to think of myself as a photo groomer, a producer, and an all around creative eye. I’ve always had a passion for the visual arts, nature, play, creativity, light. I guess it was only natural to focus my time on something as challenging and playful as creating commercial art. I’m lucky I figured out what I love to do when I was rather young, spending the first decade of my career as a graphic designer and art director. In the second half of my career I’m now focused on producing photos in a variety of roles including creative direction, photography, lighting, styling, set design, and more. In all I’ve been designing visual media for just over 20 years now.
I’ve had the great pleasure of working with major international publications like Elle, SEVENTEEN magazine, Beauty Launchpad, PDN, and more. I've also enjoyed creating imagery for the likes of Avon, Young Living, Aveda, Energizer, and NBC Universal to name a few. I feel fortunate, I’m grateful to all of them for the faith and freedom they've offered me, and thrilled to have collaborated with a bevy of very talented creatives along the way.
Currently I find myself editing and retouching full time, while occasionally directing, photographing, styling, and educating, with a focus on small product. I love what I get to do, and hope that shows in the care I put in my work.
Thank you for your time in getting to know a bit about me. I look forward to hearing from you, and the chance to serve your vision in your next project.
