About Me

My name is Matthew Crane and I am a photographer located in Chicago, Illinois. As stated on the homepage, I have been a photographer since 2016 and have loved every second of it! I have fallen in love with all things concerned with creative media and hope to be involved with photography, or something of the like, for the rest of my life!

I grew up in Colorado with a photographer for a father and have been picking up second-hand knowledge from him for my entire life, which has had an amazing affect on my knowledge of photography.

I have had the opportunity to work with a lot of amazing people both as clients and as collaborators and have made life-long friends along the way. I am always looking to meet new people with a similar love for media and hope this website can provide a better look into my work and process. If you are interested in working with me or being a client, please fill out a form on the “Inquiries” page and I would be happy to chat with you!

The major driving force behind my love for photography and media is my faith in and love for God. I feel that he has made me with the gift of capturing his beauty through photography and intend to use that gift to the utmost of my ability. All I do is for him and I don’t intend for that to ever change.

Although Photography is my main medium of creation, I also have a love for design. I have had the opportunity to design logos and icons for small companies through subcontracting, as well as working with an on-campus ministry as the communications director. I have a love for storytelling in any form and hope you all can see that through this site!
