Hi, my name is Matt. I am a Special Effects makeup artist based out of Pittsburgh PA.
I'm mainly looking for fun and interesting photographers and models to collaborate with on various concept photo shoots and to add to my growing portfolio.
I am able to cover a wide variety of applications and always happy to help design and create any project you may have. I pride myself on being extremely easy to work with and friendly.
I work a lot with silicone appliances and am able to do lifecasts of models/actors if materials are paid for. Once a lifecast is made, the possibilities are endless!
I'm not partial to doing beauty makeup, but it's not out of the question. I am a Special Effects artist and do fantasy/horror based makeup primarily. I'm also able to simulate realistic cuts and bruises if needed for that "battered" look. I have no preference as to male or female models.
I have worked on 6 different film projects and several photo shoots in the Pittsburgh area.
I'm willing to travel depending on the nature of the work
I am willing to do TFP/CD work and am currently available for the winter months. I also do paid work and my rates are reasonable.
