About Matthew

MATTHEW BERNSTEIN Reporter | Producer | Photojournalist Multiple Emmy Nominee Matthew Bernstein is a reporter, producer and photojournalist with two decades of proven ability to work under intense deadline pressure in the television news industry. His projects have ranged from news, sponsored integrations and documentaries to promotional campaigns, sizzle reels, pilots and a wide variety of reality shows. For most of the 2016 presidential campaign, Matthew was living and breathing politics on a near daily basis. He was the eyes, ears and camera on the ground in key primary states gaining access to exclusive, weekly interviews with Donald Trump. Long hours, countless campaign stops and hauling heavy loads of camera gear on very little sleep was well worth the few minutes of camera time with major political influencers. Matthew also traveled to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention where he reported on the Bikers for Trump supporters and generated groundbreaking visuals by using a virtual reality 360-degree camera while riding on the back of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. He was also in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention capturing the sights and sounds of one of the largest climate change and Trans-Pacific Partnership protests of its time. And, while in New York on Long Island covering the first presidential debate at Hofstra University, Matthew and his camera was once again at the front line of a major political protest that erupted moments before the two candidates took to the stage. The images captured by his camera were requested by multiple news outlets wanting to share those images with their viewers. Wrapping up the political season, Matthew was live on election night at Donald Trump's election headquarters in New York City. Not only was he documenting this historic night with his camera and on social media platforms, but also co-hosted a Facebook Live Election Special with Circa News’ National Security Correspondent, Sara Carter. Amongst other political events, he has covered the Inauguration of President Donald J. Trump in Washington, D.C. and daily briefings at The White House. Matthew's trustworthiness and credibility has lead him to film very sensitive and highly classified interviews pertaining to national security. Such interviews include CIA Director John Brennan, Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer, Jim and Lynda Coleman whose daughter was kidnapped by the Taliban, and American families who were on an ISIS kill list and never notified by the FBI. Additionally, as a dedicated storyteller he provided extensive coverage during Hurricane Matthew from Daytona Beach, FL, an inside look at the corrupted pain pill clinic industry, the ongoing problem of underage sex trafficking, and the Conclave Pope Francis from St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. His passion and commitment for creating beautiful content has taken him to South America, Haiti, Curacao, Bahamas and across America; where he has shot plenty of programming for Fox News, CNN, NBC, the Travel Channel, HGTV, BET and TLC just to name a few. His love for storytelling has had a huge influence on his work. Matthew can work comfortably with a crew of 100 or as a one-man operation, having worked in both capacities as a field director, producer, Director of Photography and camera operator on numerous shows. Matthew loves to collaborate with correspondents, producers and other camera ops to achieve the best possible production. His experience, enthusiasm and hard work ethic are a benefit to any production.

    Just a few hours until sunrise here in Daytona Beach, and we are really feeling the effects of Hurricane Matthew along the east coast of Florida. We’re seeing driving rain, fierce wind that has picked up significantly and the ocean waves have grown considerably. The strength of the waves have a roaring sound almost like an airplane engine idling before take-off. On Friday morning at 2AM the new advisory downgraded Matthew to a category 3 hurricane with wind speeds at 120mph. Even though the wind has decrease slightly, this still continues to be a very life-threatening weather event. Officials in Haiti said at least 283 people have been killed by this devastating hurricane, which slammed into the Caribbean country on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports. Florida Governor Rick Scott said that you can rebuild homes, you can rebuild businesses but you can’t rebuild a life. And that sums up what he and other local officials have been urging residents all week, being prepared and staying safe. After being forced to evacuate from my hotel on the beach late Thursday morning, I decided to take a drive and explore the area. I found a lot of homes and businesses boarded up with plywood, sandbags placed along the foot of doors like puzzle pieces and most of the residents heading the advice from local officials. But I also encountered quite a few folks still out and about walking around taking pictures of the rough surf, not a good idea. In Daytona Beach, I’m Matthew Bernstein for Circa News. This story originally aired on Sinclair Broadcast Network and Circa News on October 7, 2016.
