Matthew Benjamin Canada is a cinematographer based out of New York City.
Matthew has lived in five U.S. States, studied jazz theory at a music conservatory, and has a degree in marketing. This well-roundedness in life experiences and diverse environments translates over into his cinematography work where art and science coalesce.
From his early days filming music videos in New York City back in 2008, Matthew has intently followed a path toward narrative storytelling and cinematic commercials. This is where he thrives the most, by creating images that support the story and characters through framing, lighting, and subtext.
Always collaborating with the filmmaking team of producers, directors, production designers, actors, and clients, Matthew lives for the creative process in both technical research and preparedness, as well as poetic on-set in the moment instincts.
