When asked how Matthew Sprout first got into photography, he simply says “I just kind of fell into it.” Matthew Sprout grew up in the small town of Elkton, Maryland where he attended community college to study Graphic Design. At school, Matthew decided to take a black and white film and digital photography course as a way to counter his busy soccer schedule. “It was like a light bulb turned on”. A self-proclaimed jock of sorts, Matthew had never really taken to art before college, but that didn’t stop him from moving to New York City to attend the School of Visual Arts to study photography.
Twelve years later, Matthew has made a name for himself as a fashion and beauty photographer. His photographs possess a quality of light and color palette that give his work a sense of modernity and refinement. Matthew’s work has been featured editorially in Allure, Architectural Digest, ELLE Canada, Harper's Bazaar, InStyle, Interview, Kinfolk, Porter, PorterEdit, Russh, Sunday Times Style, T Singapore, Teen Vogue, V, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Vogue Arabia, Vogue Mexico, W, and ZOO. He has also shot for a number of brands including Anthropologie, Arias New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Carolina Herrera, Club Monaco, Co, CUUP, Derek Lam, Derek Lam 10 Crosby, Express, Halston Heritage, Hellessy, La Ligne, Lisa Perry, Mignonne Gavigan, Natori, Ralph Lauren, Reformation, Saks Fifth Avenue, Shiseido, Shopbop, Splendid, Splendid x Margherita, Theory, Ugg, and Zara.
Matthew lives in Brooklyn, NY.
