Hi! I am Matthew Buckner, owner of Above All Video and Photography, LLC. I am what most would call a dreamer. But dreamers get nowhere in life unless they become doers. I create in my mind big ideas and then work extra hard to make these dreams a reality. I wake up excited every day knowing that sometime during the hustle and bustle I get to do one more thing to make my vision real.
One such dream was to photograph someone's special moments in a way that allows for an individualized experience. Photography is not just about a smile on a piece of glossy paper, it is the experience- that moment in time forever captured- the contentment of knowing this photo is the essence of who you are and what you love!
I would like to introduce my right hand man. Dylan (Doodle) Hackworth. He has been with me for the last year and has learned so much already. Like me he is also a dreamer, and has an old soul to be just 17. He has gone above and beyond what I've asked him to do and honestly couldn't do it without him.
I'm Dylan Hackworth, I was born and raised in Glasgow WV. I am a Junior at Riverside High School where I play baseball. I also love to play the guitar. During baseball my eighth grade year, I was introduced to the new assistant coach and little did I know that this man would turn into a big brother figure to me. But not until my 10th grade year did I join the Above All Video and Photography team. I could write books about the experiences I've had with Matthew and our shoots. Our photo shoots are more than just going out with a camera, its an EXPERIENCE. The main thing I'm proud of is that no matter what the shoot is, its always an adventure.
