Behind the Camera

Hello! My name is Matthew Vivanco and I am a story teller.

I am a believer in Christ and without His blessing to find the Purpose behind my PASSION, I wouldn't be where I am today.

I was born and raised in sunny Southern California but now reside in Charlotte, NC. There is something different about living in the South that has allowed me to continually grow as a creative and as a man of God. The endless adventures in and around the city, the ever changing seasons (that spark my interest to get out to explore with my camera in hand), and MOST certainly the southern charm and hospitality that have hit a soft spot in my heart. 

I am unapologetically a sucker for LOVE and blame the HOPEFUL romantic in me for seeking to capture genuine moments for others to feel what I feel.

When I'm not behind my camera I can be found running around with my two Siberian huskies, breaking a sweat at a crossfit gym, working on my tan (while working in my yard), enjoying a brew with friends at a local coffee shop or brewery. I also enjoy watching action/adventure and suspenseful movies with family and taking a drive with the windows down and the radio blasting good tunes. 

Thank you for stopping by and learning a bit more about who I am. I believe there is no such thing as strangers--only friends that have yet to meet. I can't wait to meet you and look forward to capturing your story to share with generations to come.

CHEERS!

Photography isn’t a job for me- it is more about a passion which allows me to connect genuinely with each person in front of my lens.
