New Website But Same Web Address www.mattdunn.com

I have been working diligently on my new website. I had to go back to the beginning since all of the images are bigger and have much more detail. I should launch it in the next week since I am putting the finishing touches on everything. Working on new logo too. You will also see many updated images as well. Thank you everyone for your patience

New Additions to My Junkyard Series

I have been doing this “Junkyard Series” for 20 years. I do additions to the series when I find great locations and/or great models as muses. As the title implies, I do the series in dirty and often times strange locations which are unacceptable and one would rarely find fantastically sexy and beautiful people in. I love the contrasts not only in the people but in the elements of the location. If anyone knows of other locations I could do more of these in please let me know. Otherwise I will be looking everywhere. Please see my other work for the series at my main website.  What a gorgeous creature!!!

Aksana for NEXT Models Photographed by Matt Dunn

I had the opportunity to shoot an amazing model two days ago. Her name is Aksana. Rochelle Lee did her makeup.
This was a last minute shoot and the model only brought 6 tank tops, 4 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of jean shorts, and NO SHOES!
Take a look at the contact sheets and you will be able to see how great the shoot went and even though we were limited with the
possibilities for the shoot we still got some amazing images.

10 Rules for Photographers and Models by Matt Dunn

Link to Matt Dunn Photography official website: 10 Rules For Female Models from Male Photographers

– Stop being snooty! Because there will always be someone better than you with a better attitude.

– Stop talking shit about others. We don’t care how much you hate the other models and what drama you had with them. We’re your photographers not your Psychotherapists. Besides, times are wasting when you could be shooting!

– Stop being a flake. Some photographers use valuable studio time to shoot you, if you’re not showing up, at least give us a call. It’s common sense. And yes we’ve heard the “I got in to an accident” excuse a million times.

– Don’t shoot with a photographer if you’re just doing it for practice. A lot of the time it’s noticeable when you choose to shoot with crappy photographers just because you want to feel better about yourself, and don’t have the confidence to shoot with good ones. If you’re gonna shoot with someone you don’t like and complain in the end…
then DON’T DO IT!! It’s that simple.

– Chain your testosterone driven boyfriend on a leash. While it’s totally understandable that you want to bring him for protection, an overzealous bf is just a headache and a half. We have TV dramas for that kind of stuff.

– Don’t just stand there like a stick! No explanation needed for this one.

– Don’t move around too much too!

– Have patience with your photos. Even if it’s digital, it takes time to edit these images. Especially if you have a lot of pimples and blemishes… and yes… fat!

– No, we’re not gonna carry your bags. We’re not bell boys. Some of us are nice enough to offer but don’t make it seem like we owe it to you, or like it’s a privilege.

10 Rules for Male Photographers from Female Models

– No we’re not going to sleep with you. Models are in very vulnerable positions of having photographers take charge of what’s being shot. We have to expose our skin time to time, and we know that is something hard for some of you to handle. Did we mention No means No?

– We’re not an escort or dating service either. Enough said.

– Stop talking negative about others. While some are legit warnings about shady photographers, we can usually tell if you’re just hating on others or not.

– Stop being Jealous. We’re Models… we shoot with different photographers. Enough said.

– Compliment us time to time. We know you’re not our Bf’s to tell us if our asses look fat or not… but a lot of us are insecure about certain areas and we need to know if we’re doing fine. However, “You’re HAWT!!! is not a compliment.

– If you want us to look good for our shoots, please don’t offer any cold cuts or pizza when we eat. We do have cravings too, and it kills us that we can’t eat them.

– Get over yourself. A lot of Photographers have what we call “God Complexes”. You’re good, we chose you. But there are plenty of Photographers who are better out there.

– Photos take time to edit, but don’t take “too much time”. We’re excited to see what you’ve done with us so can you blame us for rushing you?

– Don’t be offended if we’re careful with signing certain contracts. We just don’t want to end up being in some sort of porn site.

– If we want to bring our BF’s for the sake of protection, please try to understand. Especially if this is our first time. There are a lot of creeps out there and we just don’t want to get raped or sexually harassed.

Sarasota Magazine November 2010 is Out Now!!! Matt Dunn Photography

My team and I shot this beautiful story last month for Sarasota Magazine.  We all loved the model, Elena from Front Models here in Miami Beach.  The hair and makeup team was spot-on and my assistant, John Ulmer, was amazing as well.  He even shot some video when I wasnt even looking.  We all trekked over to Sarasota and photographed this at the Rupp-Seibert House.  The fashion stylist. Lissa Murphy, was a doll and put together beautiful clothes and jewelry to make this story a stunningly beautiful project to work on.

Matt Dunn Gets on His Knees to Photograph Kids and Pets

Hey guys,

Been asked repeatedly about how I shoot children and pets so well.  Here is the secret.  Get down on their level! It really is that simple.  They will gravitate to you and respond very differently than if you loom over them asking them to pick their heads up to look at you.  Shoot in the morning since pets and people are most compliant then.  Shoot lost of images and dont worry so much about getting everything right.  It will stress your subject.  Just have fun with the process and they will enjoy it as well.  Keep everything positive and praise often.  I promise the next time you break out the camera they will love having their photograph taken.Our loving companion for more than 8 yearsNotice that I was on the ground when I shot this image.  They are both so relaxed and it was so much fun.  They had been running and playing in Tennessee.

Weekend Working

It seems to always be the sign of a good week, or at least a very busy one. Weekend working has been on the last 5 weeks in a row.  Wow!!! Whether Ive been uploading a project to an editors or creative directors FTP site or processing raw files and organizing them, Ive been thrilled being this busy this early in the season.  God has definitely been good to us.  Putting some finishing touches on some magazine work on Monday and Tuesday.  Prepping Wednesday for a road trip to Atlanta.  Cant wait to see one of my best friends.

Heather in Studio

Shot some images of Heather(Mega Models Miami).  Great model.  I will definitely use her again and again.

Here is another one…
