Cutomer Profile: Matt Barnes ESQ



Matt Barnes is the man responsible for some of the freshest and most innovative photography in not only Toronto but the whole dang world. Check out his website for yourself, just a little warning its more Rated R then PG13.

Through his pulling for photo shoots like the one below featuring Stephen James Hendry and shopping for himself (the man has a serious Cutler and Gross addiction) we have developed quite the nice little friendship.




Obviously the next step in this relationship was to do a customer profile on our good buddy. Matt was even nice enough to provide us with his own bio, here's what he has to say for himself
My name is Matt Barnes and I'm a Toronto-based photographer. I have big feet, a big smile and a big heart.
My current interests include World War II navy uniforms, John Wayne movies, confident women, expensive shoes,
Italian switchblades, sailor tattoos and songs about trains. I love my wife Shelley, my family and friends.
I have been shooting professionally for the past 5 years.
I do a wide-range of work and my clients include top ad agencies, international publications and famous faces.
I work with a really tight team. We work very hard and we love what we do. We are very hands on and always strive to do our best.
My producer Tara is the backbone of what we do. She keeps everything organized and running smooth, and if I want a 30-foot-tall inflatable gorilla, she finds me one.
My assistant Spenser does the dirty work. He keeps the studio looking smart, helps with pre-production and is my first full-time photo assistant.
We also work with a tight-knit group of freelance professionals to make sure we give our clients the best possible final product.
If you are interested in working with us, please get in touch.
