My name is Matt Rome. I am an Oakland, CA based cinematographer who focuses on documentary-style content for independent filmmakers, brands, and tech companies. My work has been featured at SFMoMA, the Mill Valley Film Festival, the Marfa Film Festival, and SXSW.

My client work keeps me busy at home and has taken me around the world shooting for the likes of Patagonia, Netflix, Lululemon, IGN, Pfizer, Apple, Google, Facebook, GoFundMe, AirBnb, UCSF, Shopify, Box, Visa, Square, Reuters, and the California Chamber of Commerce to name a few.

I received a BS in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production from The Art Institute of San Francisco, CA in 2010. As a filmmaker, I got my start in the grip and electric departments, primarily moonlighting as a gaffer before finding my place as a cinematographer. Working with light was, and continues to be, deeply informative.
