I am extremely fortunate to work with so many amazingly creative and talented people when creating these marketing photographs. Their client reviews and testimonials mean so much to me.
The scope of these commercial photography projects range across industries, from innovative, lithe start-ups to bio technologies and environmental corporations.
They cover the gamut of uses from editorial to advertising imagery and include working in the photo studio as well as on location around the world.
All of it in the service of telling their stories through photography.

Matt is the real deal—he does great work—and he makes it SO easy to be who you really are. His calm and positive approach helps you get over the inevitable self-consciousness of photo shoots. He keeps your goals in mind for the image you want to convey and still captures the real you—at your best.
And he even made choosing which photos to use easy! We had too many good shots to choose among and Matt gave me very helpful advice and feedback all along. I appreciated his easy communication, all the care he puts into his work, and his calm approach in working with nervous clients!
As a Business Broker and Exit Planner, people often judge me by their first impression. A seller asks themselves - is this the person, I can trust to sell the business I built over the past 20 years or more? A buyer asks "is this a person I can trust to help me purchase a business for a half million dollars or more? First impressions are everything. Frequently, conclusions are made without even a conversation or spending the time to read my bio. That is why I contacted Matt McKee, a fellow chamber member for my headshot. Matt verbalized, then captured what I needed to convey through my headshot - trustworthy, knowledgeable and approachable. My session at his studio was fun and professional and as easy as having a conversation with a new friend. He advised me on everything including wardrobe. It was a great experience and I look forward to using my new headshot. I trusted Matt with the image of my business and encourage your to do so as well.
Don’t be fooled by Matt’s position title. I hired Matt for a professional photo shoot but got much more. He took a potentially awkward photo session and made it comfortable and funny while creating a fantastic final product! I highly recommend Matt and would be happy to help anyone get in touch.
I have never had a professional corporate photo taken before - never mind an entire shoot. He was able to schedule the shoot with short notice and was very communicative about what would take place. I really was preparing myself for a lot of awkwardness.
Immediately he puts you at ease. His make-up artist was excellent – she made me look like myself only better! The conversation really relaxes you and captures your absolute best self in his photographs.
Everything about this shoot was so easy. It was above and beyond my expectations and I am very happy with the results. Matt is the consummate professional and the quality of his work is superb - I highly recommend his services.
As a lawyer, I know that that the photo by my bio is often the first thing that clients are going to see. It is important to get just the right feel to give clients confidence in me. I don’t typically like having my photo taken, but Matt McKee made the process easy, relaxed, and even fun! I was very pleased with the final photos and even happier to have had the chance to work with Matt McKee and his team.
Thank you again for everything!
Matt is one of those guys that people in theater call a Triple threat… (Sing great, Dance well, and can Act ).
In the real world I prefer he didn’t sing. I don’t know if he can dance ( although have seem him walk AND chew gum…) but I’ve never seen him act poorly.
He is a talented and highly creative photographer that inspires me to keep on trying with (my own images), as well as a hell of a guy. Hire him, do it today.
This marks the Boston Teen Acting Troupe’s eighth shoot with McKeePhotography and it seems that each shoot outdoes the prior. Throughout his collaborative process Matt is able to craft the tiniest of ideas or concepts into phenomenal professional works, the likes of which we could have never dreamed of, while still remaining grounded to the original idea. His studio, easily the coolest place I’ve ever seen, is inviting and has the air of a sophisticated fun house.
As we are still a fledgling theatre group, Matt’s posters have been crucial to the Boston Teen Acting Troupe’s success. The posters have been able to engage potential audience members while proving to them that BTAT’s work is professional and polished. His evocative and engaging work has helped the BTAT capture the attention of the New York Times and National Public Radio. McKeePhotography has cemented The Boston Teen Acting Troupe’s reputation as a legitimate and professional teen theatre group that tackles challenging material.
We scheduled a photoshoot at Matt McKee Photography with four community bank presidents and the president of the Chamber of Commerce for a regional ad campaign. Matt was accommodating both with scheduling and with preparing our people for session. We provided Matt a mock-up of the shot we were looking for and said we were open to alternatives too. He soon emailed us a mock-up of a nice alternative arrangement we might want to consider.
On set, he and his assistant were quick and efficient, having prepared in advance by having our ad template live on screen so as to be able to show me immediately what each shot would look like in the ad frame - amazing technology. He captured nice arrangements of both versions, and his alternate version was so strong we used that one for the ad. He was expedient, professional, and kept the tone light and fun. He helped us accomplish our goal, and the presidents were all very pleased with the results.
I called Matt in to create a series of photographs for a web site project. The client is in the healthcare industry, so they wanted the photos to be professional and personable. Each section of the site needed to include a unique photo of company staff working together to illustrate the core message.
Matt helped us develop the look of each image and figure out the logistics to produce the strongest images, with the least impact on the working day. He and his team created a fun, low key atmosphere on location which helped our amateur models feel comfortable in front of the camera (not an easy task). The client was thrilled with the results, which means I was also a satisfied customer.
My client hired Matt to shoot their offices for the website I was designing for them. I recommended Matt to my client because of his reputation as a highly creative and versatile photographer. In short, he did not disappoint. Our two day photo shoot produced materials that were above and beyond the client’s expectations, which helped bring the website design to a whole new level. I would recommend Matt to anyone who is looking for a creative assignment photographer who not only produces great imagery, but provides outstanding value.
I have worked with Matt on several occasions, most recently on my production of Wait Until Dark. The process of planning and executing these shoots is always highly collaborative, fun, and easy. Matt has a great studio in which to work and immediately makes you feel at home! The posters he creates are always interesting and effective. I plan to work with Matt as often as possible!
I gotta’ tell ya’ we do a lot of printing for a lot of places but your images are some of the very best we see here. Great detail and superb color work…
I really did not know what to expect but knew you were the man to hire to take the photograph. Your suggestions for preparing for the session, along with engaging a make-up artist brought out the best. You were kind, funny, engaging, asked the right questions, explained the process, and you and Hilary put me completely at ease. I was surprised at how many photos you took and the process of culling to choose the best ones was easier than I could imagine. Thank you for making the photo session lovely and comfortable.
I have had the pleasure of two sessions with Matt, both for professional images related to my employment. Each of the shoots was great and resulted in perfect images for our web site and recruitment brochure. Matt is easy going and creates a stress free and creative atmosphere which makes it easy to capture great images.
I’ve been working with professional photographers for over 25 years and Matt McKee is one of the most professional and easy to work with shooters I’ve had the pleasure of working with. We recently completed a 3-day shoot of over 40 lawyers and Matt and his crew were able to keep everything on schedule, produce a terrific product, and keep my client and their entire staff very happy in the process. I look forward to working with him again on my next shoot.
I’ve known Matt since 2006 when I was hired as Coordinator at JP Open Studios and Matt was a member of the board. It was a truly a working board and Matt always jumped in to help out with creative strategies and solutions. I’ve followed his wonderful fine art photography and I recently had the chance to work with him again when I called on his photography skills for an executive portrait.
Matt’s wonderful sense of humor and professionalism puts you at ease immediately and he was well prepared for our session in his amazing studio. Matt knows how to capture those “moments in between” to highlight you at your best. I couldn’t be happier with the results and highly recommend him! I will certainly use his services again, he’s a pleasure to work with
Matt McKee is a man of great character and a true professional. He recently updated the portraits on our company website and LinkedIn profiles. Our session at the studio was short and sweet. No muss, no fuss. The Groomer was quick, to the point and easy to work with. And, they got us out of there in timely fashion.
If a picture is worth a thousand words than Matt’s work is the Encyclopedia Brittanica. He is such a pleasure to work with – when he does a project for the NVCC (Neponset Valley Chamber of Commerce) we have the photos almost instantaneously. I’ll always remember that board of directors and staff photo shoot; it was more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Thanks Matt, for all that you do!
We had an interesting assignment for Matt: No prep time, a tight shoot window, an even tighter deadline, four executives, a 53 foot truck (on its way to somewhere else), and a sort of vague vertical layout.
Oh, and make it work for a magazine cover!
From wrangling the truck into the location to working with our people and getting them relaxed, Matt and his team worked all of it together to get us exactly what we needed, when we needed it, and, in the time we had to do it.
Another great project for us.
Personable, Expert, Creative. I’ve known Matt McKee for several years and used him on an important project. He was on-time, on budget, professional, creative, and put people at ease as he was photographing them. This was not an easy feat when dealing with something so personal as a person’s appearance! I recommend Matt for your professional photography needs.
Our team really enjoys working with Matt. He is very intuitive, creative and delivers that one shot you need to tell the story. He is easy to work with because he takes excellent direction and has a collaborative personality. Matt and I have traveled to locations throughout the world, so he knows how to travel and shoot without having to spend your budget in rental equipment. I highly recommend Matt for any photo assignment you might have.
Matt and his team worked well with ours to produce some great studio-style product shots on location. His team also effectively captured the product in-use to deliver results with which our clients were happy.
You made our product look great and you made our model feel like a king. I am so pleased with the results of the shoot. I had more choices than I knew what to do with and you executed the concept beautifully. But most importantly, you captured exactly the mood and attitude we want to project with our brand. Hip and casual, but still right for something more formal. That’s a tall order and you delivered in spades.
Great Results, Personable, On Time
Matt has provided exceptional quality product photography on trials work for our line at MrSkeleton.com. We will definitely have him photograph the balance of our needs and ongoing expansions as well.
Matt displays a thorough professionalism that is clearly rooted in a deep knowledge of his craft.
His work shows the greatest sensitivity to his subject matter and an ability to portray subtle nuances of character the way excellent portraits should.
Our product poses a unique challenge in that it is small. I mean really tiny! At a millimeter and a half on the long side, it can be really hard to create an interesting, eye catching and clear picture of it for our marketing.
Matt was able to create images that appealed to both our engineers and our marketing department, another difficult challenge. I highly recommend calling him if you have any need for photos for your marketing projects.
Thank you for the great photos of the two projects!
We are really satisfied with the quality of your work. In the future, I think, we will have more jobs in Boston and I will advise you as our photographer!
Working with Matt McKee is a dream. He is not only an extremely talented photographer, but a great communicator and collaborator.
Working through concepts and then drafts of promo materials is colored by his sense of humor, easy-going style, and willingness to try new things. He makes the creative process more enjoyable than anyone I’ve worked with!
I love the product he comes up with and I love the process of working with him! I recommend him unconditionally!
This has been my fourth shoot with Matt and the results and reaction are always immediate. I love how his headshots cut thru the pile. Casting directors sift thru thousands of headshots and I like mine to be effective and artsy at the same time! If you are an actor, your headshots must look like YOU! I continue to work with Matt because he knows how to capture that each and every time I shoot with him!
We needed to set up some executive portraits to replace some old ones that I had inherited when I accepted my position. I brought Matt McKee and his people into our offices for a morning shoot.
He quickly helped us to make new portraits that were in keeping with the company marketing message, while still allowing us to feel comfortable and natural.
His team was timely and personable and made the experience easy and fun.
In fact, the hardest part of the project was choosing which images to finalize.
A nice problem to have.
I hired Matt to photograph installations of LED lighting in a movie theater chain.
The resulting photos were beautiful and captured exactly what we were looking for. This is special because I was unable to be on site during the photo shoot, so Matt had to rely solely on sample shots and direction I gave him over the phone in advance of the shoot.
Additionally, Matt was incredibly responsive throughout the process. He always responded to emails and returned phone calls promptly. He also turned around the photos very quickly. This was helpful as we were on a tight deadline.
I would absolutely hire Matt again. The photos were excellent, his professionalism was top notch and he was incredibly punctual.
If you’re in the branding or marketing profession, you understand the importance of projecting a strong and authentic identity, from your logo to how you speak about yourself. Your business portrait is yet another extension of your brand — and often someone’s first impression of you. Matt McKee gets branding, and does an amazing job at creating a portrait that captures the essence of who you are.
I went to Matt’s cool studio in Hyde Park where we discussed the goals of my project before starting the shoot itself.
I needed new executive portraits for my web site and advertising campaign.
He was great: quick and timely, great photos and sharp attention to details.
I highly recommend Matt McKee Photography
I’m so pleased that I hired Matt to photograph me for my website when I opened my consulting practice. Knowing I haven’t been photographed often, he took his time to put me at ease, and the end result was worth it. I receive tons of compliments on the photo. I highly recommend Matt – he’ll make you look great!
I knew I needed a corporate photograph, but found the prospect daunting. I really appreciated Matt’s set up which in addition to an open and airy studio, included a stylist and makeup artist that took care of getting me ready.
What a relief. We even had fun. Thank you Matt.
I was referred to Matt by my graphic designer who was helping me make my website more reflective of my true personality, and whose opinion I trust. Matt and his make-up artist did a great job making me feel comfortable, helping me make final decisions about my outfit, and “capturing my essense” during the photo shoot. Matt quickly recognized and optimized my best angles, features, and postures. He talked to me about my interests, and then he and Kacie even put some of my favorite music on during the shoot!
They both were patient as I looked at the initial digital photos and asked to make some hair and wardrobe adjustments. I now have pictures on my website that I am proud of and feel better represent my style, purpose, and energy. I would highly recommend Matt McKee to anyone looking to take a professional head shot that truly portrays who they are, rather than just another “suit.” Thanks Matt!!
It took a while to find a photographer I was comfortable enough with over the phone to set an appointment. Matt had me in the next week and made the whole process extremely easy. I needed a corporate bio photo and Matt’s work and professionalism exceeded my expectations.
