About

Mission

My work will assist your Fire, Law Enforcement, Rescue, CERT, EMS or other first responder team with the critical job of educating the public. Additionally, the imagery I provide will help you maintain team morale. I capture high quality imagery and videos that can be used for a wide variety of purposes, including marketing and public safety presentations. Whether you want live action photos or a video of a team event, I have the necessary experience to capture everything while supporting your goals.

Matt Chesin the Photographer

I have been photographing firefighters and other emergency first responders in action since 2013. I’m passionate about capturing viable imagery while simultaneously maintaining rigorous safety protocols. My photos have been utilized by fire departments, the media, city council presentations and editorials. I began taking first responder photographs as part of a class project for Arizona State University. I graduated with a degree in Film and Media Production.

I am proud of the work that I have done with the Scottsdale Fire Department and other departments throughout Arizona. It's always my intention to portray the reality of firefighting and other emergency responder situations. These images have been used to help provide local communities with vital fire safety training, and they also showcase firefighters, police officers and other first responders in a positive light.

A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of building this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going!
