Matthew Joseph Photography: Toronto Professional Portrait, Dog and Pet Photographer.

Welcome to My Blog

I am a professional photographer based in Etobicoke, Ontario. I specialize in professional portraiture of pets, families and children, either with studio equipment or on location. I mainly work in the GTA (Brampton, Mississauga, Toronto, Oakville etc.), but I am available to travel further upon request. I have been taking pictures of anything and everything for my whole life. I started this blog to share my love pf photography with the world.  Feel free to browse the sample galleries on the main site, and if you like what you see or have any questions don't hesitate to contact me.

In this shot, Murphy had to lean way out to the side so that he could see the tennis ball in his mom's hand past me and the camera. Here are a few of Murphy in action with and without his tennis ball:
