About

New Ray Pictures is a Toronto based concept to delivery production company helmed by Actor/Photographer Matthew Bennett

With a focus on Headshot, Portrait & Beauty Photography, Matthew brings over 25 years of cinematic experience to every project & creates message defining visuals that set his clients apart.

My name is Matt Bennett and I've been involved in the Canadian Film & Television Industry for over 25 years as an Actor and Writer/Director which has allowed me to develop a unique and highly tuned skill set that I bring to all my work as a Photographer.

I understand how stressful photo sessions can be and one of the main aspects of my job as a Photographer is to limit that pressure by helping clients get in the right state of mind.

My skills as an Actor help me effectively communicate with my clients and as a Writer/Director I understand how story & frame can best serve a client’s purpose & needs.

When it comes to Headshots I believe a Headshot is an essential tool that can be critical to success & one of the most powerful assets an Actor has in their control.

An Actor's Headshot is their calling card & if it’s the first time an Agent, Casting Director or Producer is seeing what an actor looks like it’s an incredible opportunity to create the right "first impression" or to change a negative impression that may have been made.

Photo sessions with me are simple, fun & easy, so send me an email and let’s start a conversation about the direction we can take to represent how you want to be seen & make your best image happen.
