My name is Matthew Leland, and thanks for stopping by my page! A little about me.
I'm a professional photographer that's been shooting for about 4 years now. While my specialty is wedding and event photography, I've been expanding out to cover many other facets of photography. My style has always had a vintage heart with a contemporary twist that I think makes what I create unique. I'm big into the kustom and rockabilly kulture, and I'm an avid car builder.
For this site, I'm looking to expand my portfolio in a few different ways. I'm looking for a few things:
Commercially Styled Shoots: Looking to create work with models that are looking to push their portfolio towards commercial clients and agencies. Looking for models with fashion background and working with bridal clothing for promotional material.
Pin-ups: This has always been a passion of mine. Looking for traditional or alternative models for shoots that are being pushed for magazines. Currently have been published in Ol' Skool Rodz and Grills and Garters magazine as of 2013.
Creative/Artistic collaborations: Always looking for new ideas with creative models to make photography for the sake of art. I think things like that keep both artists alive and fresh mentally to just do things for fun!
My website just got up! Please take a look...
I'm located in Manteca, but I travel a lot for work in the Bay Area, and even in the LA area. Thanks so much for stopping by and take a look at some of my work if you have a moment!
