Matt Sayles is a brilliant photographer with an inspired eye and a drive to depict his subjects in thought-provoking ways. We talk about his varied career, which includes shooting photos of every A-list star imaginable, on the latest Breakfast All Day A La Carte. Matt discusses growing up in Los Angeles, picking up a camera in high school and honing his talents in creative ways at Stanford University. He discusses some of the favorite famous faces he’s shot including Adele, Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan. But recently he’s also embarked on a couple of projects to shine a light on people who aren’t represented enough in photographs: women of color with great curves and committed couples in artfully intimate moments. And Matt is branching out into directing, including the clip for country star Jana Kramer’s “Beautiful Lies.” He’s so smart and thoughtful and has strong, eye-opening ideas about the importance of inclusion. You’re really going to enjoy this one.
