“executes with exacting standards” Ad Partners
“does fantastic work” The Sembler Company
As a creative director and vice president, I counted on Matt to do the impossible time
and time again on photography, print, web and broadcast projects for Subaru, Harley Davidson,
Beef ‘O’ Brady’s, Amscot Financial, Ferman Automotive Group and Sonny’s Bar-B-Q.
A true professional, Matt Clark is an asset to any project. Not only is he a gifted photographer,
Matt is an award-winning art director. This unique combination gives his work a level of
professionalism and creativity that’s easy to see and truly reflects his many years as a respected
industry veteran. In terms of his ability to lead, Matt possesses both the initiative and
organizational ability to take command and the talent to execute with exacting standards.
Skeek, Award-winning Writer and Film Director, VP and Creative Director, Ad Partners
When I first saw Matt's work I was amazed. A business associate of mine had highly recommended
his services. I was at first hesitant to call knowing that his level of work would be beyond my
budget. Matt's fee's were fair and he devoted a full week to developing a website for my tutoring
business. He gave me the same time and attention for my small business as he would the
big companies he works with. His talent is unbelievable. He is a true artist and designer.
Thank you Matt for all your patience.
Marie, Cannon Tutoring
Schifino Lee hired Matt Clark on a freelance basis, to function as art director and photographer, and to lead the
Bay Pointe Preserve condo conversion re-branding project. This was a large and highly visible project. Matt dove
in there, took control and managed all aspects of the project, delivering a superior product to our client.
Our paths first crossed in 1998, when Matt worked on our files at G+D. He is one of the
best out there—full of creativity, broad experience in every aspect of design, prolific in his
output. I’m always ready to recommend Matt, when the opportunity presents itself.
Ben, Principal, Schifino Lee
Working with Matt Clark at AdGumbo is a pleasure. He is fast, accurate and eager
to please, as well as having great creative ideas. He also offers good ideas out of the creative
realm that assists in managing my client’s expectations and providing better service. Not only is
he an accomplished art director, he is also a fine photographer. My Kudos to Matt Clark.
Roxie, Senior Account Director, Schifino Lee Advertising
Working with AdGumbo has been incredible. Matt is talented, efficient and very professional. He has really gone the
extra mile to make each job exceptional. The nature of our industry often means a very tight deadline, but Matt has never
had an issue tackling a major project and completing it with a very fast turn around time. He also has the ability to take
very few elements to start with, and after putting his creative spin on it, he produces a fabulous finished product.
Rachel, Marketing Manager – Southeast Division, Rémy Cointreau
AdGumbo does a great job without a lot of direction. When I have edits there is always a very fast
turnaround and inconsistencies and mistakes are even caught. Matt researches information to make
sure everything is correct from creative and legal standpoints, which makes my job much easier.
I highly recommend AdGumbo Creative Shop. Matt has definitely done a fantastic job!
Shannon, Marketing Manager – Southwest Division, Rémy Cointreau
Matt Clark is exceptionally talented and creative beyond belief… Working with AdGumbo Creative Shop
has been an absolute pleasure. Matt’s work is the epitome of the saying, under promise and over deliver.
In a couple of words AdGumbo is Creative Advertising.
Robert, President, Village Wine and Spirits
I have been working with AdGumbo Creative Shop for many years in our Communications
Department and Matt is an excellent photographer and designer. Also, he is extremely creative and
customer-service oriented. Over my 19 years with the Red Cross I have had the opportunity to work
with many different creative people and Matt, by a mile, rises to the top of the list.
Melanie, General Manager, Communications, American Red Cross
One of the board members at our non-profit food bank was so taken by the beautiful
brochure AdGumbo created for our food bank, he immediately offered to cover the cost of
printing it. How many designs can inspire that kind of response? I doubt he would have been
so forthcoming with his own money if the look of the piece had not been so striking.
Marc, Resource Development Director, Feeding America
We have used Matt for several years and have always been very happy with the results. We often need him
with short notice and he has always come through for us and does fantastic work. Matt designs our graphics
for five trade shows each year, produces our quarterly newsletter and various other large design projects.
The fact that he has a graphic design background gives him an edge with his photography as he has a great
eye for design and composition. We also, send Matt out to photograph new renovations and new construction.
I would highly recommend Matt for any project.
Dawn, Marketing Director, Sembler
Matt has gone above and beyond in his work with us. He has delivered ahead of
schedule and has made changes and updates to our web site as fast as we can provide him
with updates. I would highly recommend him if you need web site work, advertising copy, or
graphics. If we could choose more than three attributes, we would check all the boxes!
Andy, VP of Retail at JLL
Matt Clark is an excellent artist and photographer. Using his skills in both areas, he has brought
routine publications to life and created cutting-edge graphics for new projects, all the while never missing
a deadline. I would highly recommend AdGumbo Creative Shop for both graphic design and photography.
Donna, Director of Marketing and Creative Services, Hillsborough Community College
Working with Matt Clark was an absolute pleasure!
He gave the utmost attention to every detail of our project for the Black, Brown and College Bound conference
hosted by HCC. Matt was patient with our committee and made sure that all of our concerns were addressed promptly
and accurately. From start to finish, our project remained on-schedule. He is reliable and a true professional. I would highly
recommend AdGumbo Creative Shop to anyone that desires a “no worries” approach to his or her creative projects.
Matt is one of the most patient and totally professional team members that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.
Lisandra, Student Information Coordinator, Hillsborough Community College
Matt Clark is an experienced graphic designer who is able to produce both the quality and
quantity of work that we require. He also is very reliable when it comes to meeting deadlines.
Matt often sees things during the creative process that greatly improve the end result.
We are very pleased to have him as part of our marketing team at Lazydays.
Stewart, CMO, Lazydays
Matt’s ability to work with limited direction and his understanding of our needs for
creative, copy and production are a huge asset to our marketing department. I can count him
to deliver projects on time, within scope and under budget. What else do you need?
Ari, Marketing Manager, Circle K
As a marketing agency catering to elite technology companies over the last 10 years, I’ve hired
Matt Clark for head shots, brochures and retouching every chance I get. As a proud Dad, I hired Matt
to memorialize my daughter’s quinceañera, in both still photography and HD video formats. My policy
is always to hire the “best in town” and in the case of photography and graphic design, that means
Matt Clark and AdGumbo Creative Shop.
Clyde, Managing Director, Brigantine Associates
Matt Clark is one of those amazing business partners who with very little coaching, delivers
whatever you need, on time and within budget. He is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.
Barbara, VP CMO, Bankers Financial Corporation
Thank you so much for coming out on Saturday night to do the photography for my company’s Holiday Party.
The pictures that you took are absolutely phenomenal. You definitely have an AMAZING gift! We look forward
to doing business with you in the future. Once again, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
The pictures are so beautiful.
Amanda, Tampa Bay Radiation Oncology
I have worked with Matt on multiple photography sessions and he is fantastic! He is great to work
with, prompt, trustworthy, consistent, and comes to every event prepared and ready to work. This week,
we have had two photography sessions set up and I will absolutely continue to use his services.
Loran, Chief Creative Scientist, Lab3 Marketing
Matt, you are my Hero. Working with AdGumbo felt as natural as breathing. Thanks for your great
suggestions and for fulfilling my vision on such a short notice. You also made a naturally beautiful photo look
nothing less than divine. Your experience with PhotoShop, layout and design is evident. I’ve received many
compliments on the cover of my book ‘She Rose’ because of the time and care you put into your work.
Venus, Author, Actress, Model, Poet
AdGumbo was fantastic to work with – very prompt, professional and high quality work!
Megan, Executive Director, MBA Career Services and Employer Alliance
Matt provided wonderful head shots and group photos for our company. He was very easy to work
with and made sure we were comfortable with our pictures before he even left the photo shoot. We received
our finished head shots just a few days later. I would highly recommend Matt and his company, AdGumbo.
Amanda, Executive Recruiter, Delta Construction Partners
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Matt for two years. His renowned
creativity and pleasant demeanor made him a pleasure to work with.
Jill, Senior Media Planner, Burrell Communications
I was looking for someone to take a group photo of our office staff. Matt came and quickly organized
all 80 of us into one unit. The resulting photograph clearly shows each face—no one got lost in the crowd!
Our employees were thrilled with the finished product. Matt was easy to work with
and patiently provided multiple estimates. I highly recommend AdGumbo.
Kim, Director of a Federal Government Office
Habitat for Humanity has used Matt's photography services for events and our corporate head shots,
we have always been thrilled with his work. Our guests loved Impersonation Station. Matt Clark is always early,
professional, personable, and his photos are spectacular! I can’t say enough good things about Matt Clark!
Stephanie, Marketing Director, Habitat for Humanity
Matt Clark was the Official Photographer for ROCK THE PARK – Benefit Concert in May. This was a two day
event featuring six bands and a Food Truck Rally. We brought Matt in, highly recommended. He was at the event
from start to finish. His work encompassed everything we were hoping to get and more. I will never use another
photography service. Matt Clark is the way to go. Our event will forever be relived through his photographs.
Sean, Marketing Director, The Center for Independence
Aside from Matt’s exceptional photography skills, he was a valuable creative resource in a fund raising event that we
worked on. I am more than thrilled with my professional head shot and refer him for business through our hotel guests.
Janet, Hilton Hotels and Resorts
If you are looking for creativity, reliability, and an award-winning commitment to excellence in graphic arts
and photography, then I highly recommend AdGumbo Creative Shop! Matt also has a diverse business background
that enables him to deliver on-time and on-budget. He has been a blessing to our church and community.
Jeff, Senior Pastor, CrossRoads, UMC
My new business cards arrived yesterday, and they are perfect. I love the thick card stock – the design looks so rich
and classy, yet fun and casual at the same time. I don’t know how you managed to capture the feeling I was hoping for,
but you certainly did! I’m so grateful to you, and I keep looking for that big business account that I can send your way.
Hope I can drum up some business for you, because I want everyone I know to experience your amazing talent.
Rev. Ros Springer
Your generosity and kindness to/and for our productions is greatly appreciated! I hope in the future you will be
able to cover more of our shows… You are always a “Welcomed Face” and if accompanied by your magic camera please
let me know in advance and there will be tickets for you and your lovely wife waiting for you at the door, thanks again!
