We had the good fortune of connecting with Matt Gucci and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Matt, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
When I first started my business almost 8 years ago, I started out with small events off of Craigslist; birthday parties, baptisms or portrait work mostly. It was hard work but it gave me so much valuable experience to build to where I am today. Working for small gigs like that gave me more freedom to creatively work with new clients while still learning business techniques and pursuing my passion for photography.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As a creative, I’ve found that I’m talented in many different styles. Whether it’s a wedding, commercial drone work or a music festival, I find excitement in capturing content that speaks to the viewer. I’m proud that I have an arsenal of tools in my skillset to create fresh and inspiring work. It wasn’t easy with how the social media platforms work, I feel like most feeds on instagram are catered to only showcase one style of work. I struggled with conforming to that format but at the end of the day my work is unique in it’s own way & I want to showcase all the different types of style I shoot. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
This year has given me time to reflect on the past few years where my business had the opportunity to grow & reach goals I didn’t even dream of. I’d like to dedicate my shoutout to all my supporters over the years who have pushed me with different projects & beautiful memories. I also want to shoutout the creative community of photographers, videographers & drone pilots who I’ve collaborated with in LA over the years. The push from the community keeps me fresh & pushes me to be the best creative I can be.
