Matt Barnes is a Toronto-based photographer, with a proclivity toward pop culture influences, those both oldfangled and fashionable. From photographing superstars like Snoop Dogg and Bradley Cooper, to personal heavyweights like Nick Wooster and Lexi Belle, Matt is as easily at home photographing a family picnic as he is a band of beatniks. Not one to shy away from big production commercial work, he has framed successful campaigns for companies such as Redbull, Virgin, Sony, Xbox, Budweiser, Pepsi, Jägermeister, Visa & Molson, and has been featured in the pages of Vogue, GQ, Playboy, Rolling Stone & Vibe. Matt dreams of scenes in backwood blowups & intercity clam-bakes, but in defiance of his head being stuck in the clouds, he has both feet set firmly on the ground. Juggling an old fashioned good time with toil and graft is no mean feat, but to see proof of it’s existence, drop Matt a line.
