Antje Gray is the primary photographer at Design Matters Photography. Antje’s laid back personality will create a relaxed atmosphere and give you a chance to be yourself. She will capture your day or event with attention to every detail, as if she were shooting photos for one of the many publications she has designed.
Antje has been drawn to photography since childhood. After spending several years following friends and family around at their weddings, she has started to realize that this is what she should really be doing. Frequently she would leave weddings feeling frustrated at the lack of creativity and number of opportunities the paid photographer missed.
Antje’s formal training is in graphic design. Over the last 12 years, She has art directed photo shoots, posed as a hand model, and hung out on location with photographers just to learn more about the process. In addition, Antje has taken classes in photography to learn the fundamentals. She knows how to develop prints in a dark room, but prefers the convenience and flexibility of digital photography. Her years as a designer have made her a master in photoshop.
Antje started Design Matters (a graphic design studio) over 6 years ago. She has been taking pictures for design clients and “on the side” for years. Recently Antje created Design Matters Photography to give her passion the attention it deserves.
