Hi! My name is Matt Von Drago. I’m a multidisciplinary photographer with a particular focus on portraits based in Barcelona. In early 2020, I graduated from Institut d'Estudis Fotogràfics de Catalunya (IEFC) and I hold a degree in Photography.
I work closely with clients that range from creatives, entrepreneurs, and private individuals to ad agencies and brands. I help them create natural and narrative-driven imagery. I’m very meticulous and I’ll plan well-ahead every commission to ensure a relaxed and professional environment during the shoot.
Additionally, I’m very comfortable shooting still life, commercial photography, still photography, and landscapes.
My professional experience has been focused on advertising and assisting professional photographers. By now I've collaborated with important agencies, magazines, corporations and artists like McCann, DDB Spain, Craft, Asociación de Fotógrafos Profesionales de España, ADG-FAD, Monocle, El País Semanal, Engel & Völkers, Volkswagen, Unilever, Purina, Bimbo, Florette, Aldi, Profoto Global, Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura and Rosalía, to name a few.
I also have a passion for cinematography, collecting vinyls, coffee table books and vintage electric guitars.
Moreover, I can retouch, film and direct, scan and restore film/old photographs, give professional advice for your project… Just reach out and tell me what’s on your mind and I’ll let you know how I can help you take some weight off your back!
