Work With Me - Matt James Photo Studio

Matthew Stocke, Owner

Professional Photographer, Veteran Broadway and TV Actor in New York City

With 25 years behind the lens as well as 20 years on the Broadway Stage, I have had to stay in touch with the ever-changing relationship between Acting and Photography. With that knowledge, I am absolutely certain that I will help you capture the best representation of who you are, right now! Because no matter what the current standard, the one thing that doesn't change is the absolute need to get a really good Head Shot, one that shows the person that you are before you walk into that audition...I don't have any slick tricks and I won't sell you a bill of goods. What I will do, along with your energy and input, is get the best picture of YOU!
