Hi, my name is Matt Vantuch, I live with my family in a beautiful town of Carlsbad, CA. I have been photographing models and women of all ages (18+) for almost a decade now.
I would say, that I am really good in making women look beautiful. I look for the small things others may overlook. I'm aware of the problem areas on female body and I will make them always look great and natural without the need of ever talking about them.
I'm not a fan of over re-touching images. Plastic look was in 5 years ago. I like to see a real person on the finished image. I am a master of photoshop, however I use it only to clean and adjust what is necessary. In my opinion, and that is speaking from experience, great images are made when model is comfortable. My job is to make you comfortable, your job is to put down the phone, stop texting and help me make you feel comfortable :).
I'm here on ModelMayhem to learn and also share my experience with new and established models. I have traveled the world with models, I have been shooting all over the US, including Hawaii islands, Florida, all over California of course and I have shoot girls in Central Europe and Ibiza as well.
My portfolio is huge, what you see here is only a tiny hint of my work. There are more than 40 thousand images shot by me floating around the internet on models pages and hundreds are added weekly. For example, I have been working with the beautiful Wendy Fiore for the past three years, all Wendy's images shot by me can be seen here: www.wendy4.com.
I am very diversified and able to work in almost any situation. I have been shooting in huge crowds, moving cars and boats, forbidden places to public, abandoned islands and far in the ocean soaked too many times by unexpected waves.
I won't schedule shooting with just anyone, I am very busy and I have a family life as well, but I will be happy to make time for you if I see that you are really serious about having few great images done.
My specialty are intimate photography and casual candids as well. I am a professional and I will never ask you to do anything you are not comfortable with.
I love to shoot outside by the ocean, I do have a studio available, but to be completely honest, the most shoots I have done was in local hotel rooms. Wow, this sounds cheap :). No, really, some of the local hotels and resorts are really beautiful, they usually have a great bed with unique design elements which can all be incorporated into the final image.
