Matt Ruggles – Director of Photography

Matt Ruggles attended Eastern Michigan University where he graduated with a degree in Telecommunications and Film.  He relocated to Atlanta in 1997 for a change of scenery and some warmer weather.

Matt is versed in many aspects of the video industry ranging from broadcast to corporate to documentary.  His work has been seen on most of the major cable news networks, ESPN, MTV, VH1, Investigation Discovery Channel, among others.  With a keen eye for visually compelling shots he also enjoys creative and dramatic lighting for interviews.  His biggest passion is documentary filmmaking and his recently completed “Back to Brisbane” will be hitting the film festival circuit in 2010/2011.  Shot almost entirely in Australia, Matt found an intriguing story about an Australian aboriginal artist who was part of the stolen generation.

Matt is single and lives in Sandy Springs, Ga.
