My name is Matthew Perez and I am a Photographer / Videographer based in Ventura, California. I believe that Creativity is the ability to express our inner most desire to be known for who we really are. Not who we are supposed to be in the eyes of others. Photography was always something I was curious about when I was younger and had a desire to try but it wasn't until 2016 that I bought my first camera before I spent 9 months in South East Asia working with various organizations in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, and Thailand. It was there that I had grown in my understanding and passion for photography. I was shooting on a Nikon FM2 and a Canon Rebel XS, I love shooting film and the art form that it is. I returned from Asia with the goal of creating a network of creators who are skilled in all fields including photography, videography, graphic design, web design, and story telling to help build an online presence for groups, organizations, and non-profits that are making an impact around the world.
