Photo / Video / Web / Events / Solutions
Welcome to MUPD – Matthew Upton Photography and Design, a portal to learn a little bit about myself and take a look at my work.
Originally looked at photography as a method to further my graphic design abilities, it quickly became a focus. It became a passion as soon I became close to musicians, then it really took off. With my natural curiosity and drive to never stop learning, I then dove into web development when the web services I was using where limited in their design. With the demand for music videos and videography for weddings I dove head first into video. Studying and learning daily I will never stop moving forward.
My Bachelors of Arts Degree in Graphic Design and Marketing, was only the start in finding how much there is to learn and accomplish because, schooling is nothing compared to real life experience. My experience in running a company, managing employees, handing all aspects of being a creative and looking at the bottom line for not only myself, but various industries has provided me with incite in many categories.
Experience covering corporate branding, print/web advertising, web design to apparel and press kits.
Unsatisfied with current web-tools I decided to build my own. You are using it right now.
My BA Degree and Work experience work in perfect harmony.
When the appropriate tools were not available I created my own.
Translating and understanding design, supported by analytics, proven by marketing, will develop and shape braninding.
Running a business from start to finish, including location scouting, hiring, firing, permits and payroll and so on.
Newly released, the latest music video for My Way from the band Firing All Cylinders. Playing on the theme of the dating game with a twist, the contestant tells off the girls and separate himself from the bad influences.
"Hire him before Rolling Stones Does..."
"Hire Matt for some great pics!!"
"Matthew Upton communicated effectively and helped unlock the potential of our project past my wildest expectations."
Working with Matthew is fantastic in every way!

I have designed my equipment to be completely portable. My truck has been specifically modified to carry all my equipment including studio backdrops to any location. With multiple large battery packs I am able to bring the full power of the studio to any location.
