Capture the Shot is owned and operated by little old me, Matthew King. I've been a photographer since I was able to hold a camera. For many years it was just a hobby but in 2012 I began working as a full time professional photographer. Self taught for the most part, I got my start mainly as a concert and event photographer but have steadily been adding to my tool box. I have been branching out into product, landscape, and now real estate photography, as well as shooting independent movies. My photos have been used for the Suburban Legends album Day Job, seen in Calabasas Style Magazine and have been used by A. Marie Jewelry. I am a proud member of The Professional Photographers of America (PPA).
I grew up in Southern California, specifically in the San Fernando Valley, and now I've transplanted to Simi Valley. I've been able to experience every kind of scene you can imagine. The beach, the mountains, live music, great cars, amusement parks, you name it. Everything is right here at my fingertips. Being a photographer here is absolutely amazing and the people you can meet come from everywhere in the world. What more can you ask for?
You may be asking "Where are you available to shoot?" and the answer is, just about anywhere you can think of. I mainly like to cover the Los Angeles, Ventura, and Orange County areas, but I am available outside those areas with an added travel fee.
If you would like to hire me for a shoot, please don't hesitate to call me at (805) 210-2532 (bus.) or (818) 406-2209 (cell) between the hours of 9AM and 5PM, 7 days a week. After hours you can leave a message on the business line. You can also contact me through the contact page or email me at email@example.com.
