Photography is one of those things I just kinda fell into, so to say. After a trip in 2002 across the country for the first time, and seeing the amazing things that my eyes beheld, I knew I had to learn how to best capture those moments so others could see at least a fraction of the beauty in that moment. So much of photography is simply that - capturing a moment, a feeling, and one picture may mean something totally different to the eyes that behold it.

"Matt unknowingly changed my life so much for the better. After seeing Banff on a map in search of a place to visit over Memorial Day, I did a search on Flickr. Matt's "Cool Blue" picture popped up, my jaw dropped, and plans were made immediately. His entire photostream can be used as an inspiration of places to visit. Everything is so bright and vivid.
Thanks so much for sharing, Matt! I can't wait to see what else you come up with on your wild adventures!"

"Matt is, without a doubt, one of the best nature photographers on Flickr. I love nature photography and I'm always rewarded by visiting his photostream. He not only travels to great locations, but brings back images that inspire and amaze me.
You do great work and I feel lucky I came across your photos. Keep up the good work."
