Shannon Matson Photography is a boutique portrait studio located in Plano, Texas. My focus is creating art for your home, and spending quality time with each client in order to capture what is most distinctive about you. Images created from these one-on-one sessions will tell your individual story, unique to you alone.
Once these images are captured, I will use my expertise to work with you to create perfect custom displays of your artwork for your home -- from gallery wrap canvas collections to custom framed portraits to our signature image albums.
I primarily serve the communities of Plano, Frisco, Carrollton, Lewisville, Richardson, Allen, Prosper, Dallas, Coppell, Flower Mound, and many others. However, I gladly accept clients from any of the communities in the Dallas/ Ft. Worth area.
Please feel free to call the studio at any time, so I can help you plan your custom session. I am open by appointment only, so please call (214) 794-6125 for availability and to book your session.
About the Artist:
Shannon Matson began her career as an artist at an early age, studying traditional drawing and painting techniques from early childhood until college, where she earned a Minor in Fine Art. A passion for photography was formed in high school, learning traditional 35mm photography and darkroom developing techniques. When she went to college, she decided to pursue a degree in Film Production in Los Angeles, and spent several years working in that industry, before moving back home to Dallas.
An unfulfilling career in film production evolved into a renewed passion for portrait photography. What better medium to combine the film production skills she learned in set design, lighting, editing, and costuming, than portrait photography! In the past few years, Shannon has also extensively trained herself in new digital artistic techniques.
Shannon's style is a merging of her traditional fine art skills, film production experience, and modern digital techniques into a unique one-of-a-kind style that can be admired for years to come. She combines traditional portrait styles with a modern, edgy look to create beautiful works of art. Shannon specializes in high school senior portraits, but is more than happy to create portraits in other styles as well (family portraits, baby portraits, etc.)
Shannon Matson Photography was created in 2007. Shannon Matson is a member of the Professional Photographers Association, Texas Professional Photographers Association, and the United Professional Portrait Photographers Association. She makes it a point to attend several professional conventions and seminars each year to continually improve upon her photography skills and keep at the forefront of all the latest trends in senior photography.
