The awesome DoP that is Matt Workman, methodically taught himself to become a top cinematographer. He wanted to film music videos and found himself shooting P. Diddy’s hits. Then he moved on to commercial cinematography where he currently shoots for brands like BMW. Need I say more?
Matt kept it simple. He watched and learned from the best, connected with them and added in a ton of experimentation until he learned to light for the looks he loved! Watch the below interview where he discusses how he made his progression as a cinematographer.
In the end of the interview we discuss a VERY important aspect about hooking up with Directors which could really help propel a person to work on amazing projects.
