Some info about Matt Friel: My name is Matt Friel and I have been a resident of Chattanooga for 11 years and live with my wife and two cats. I am a graduate of West Virginia University Pharmacy School and have been practicing Pharmacy for 26 years. For 20 of those years I have been engaged in the art of photography.
My artistic origins began when I started to work with MDS, a modern dance collective in Florida. I created the videography and collected photographic stills for the multimedia piece "Illumination". As a result of that work, I became fascinated with learning how to correctly render both architecture and people correctly utilizing a photographic medium, an extremely technical and time-consuming process.
During the years that followed, I partnered with many historic organizations to provide them with archival materials, some of which have been exhibited in Chicago, Birmingham, and Chattanooga.
From my breadth of experience, I have learned not only the art and science of photography, but I have also realized that everyone has their own vision of how they want images to look. In short, there is an artist inside of everyone. Essentially this is the founding principle of Matt Friel Photography. I pride myself on excellent customer service and for me this involves a great deal of collaboration to provide both the best product and customer satisfaction. To do this, I have to listen and use my professional skills and experience to to help "Articulate your Artistic Vision"
From the portrait section:Portrait Photography is intimately related to the art of Painting. Prior to the invention of photography by Joseph Niepce in 1827, clients would commission a painter to render their likeness. After the invention of the photograph, the representation of people became more realistic. With the advent of the digital camera, images became even more common. The quantity of images has increased, but not necessarily the quality.
Color management is essential for achieving a natural and elegant result when taking a portrait. I have special expertise in color management from web to print. Human flesh tones are exceedingly complex and require subtle yet dynamic editing to make you look like your best self.
For portrait photography, lighting is a crucial element. I utilize soft lighting so there are no unwanted highlights or overly washed-out skin. If you have had a portrait done and your skin tone looks orange then something is not right. If you want your portraits done correctly, book a session now with Me "Matt Friel Photography".
