My dad said, “Matt, I wish I had more pictures of my childhood friends. I’ll make you a deal and buy all the film you want if you pay to have it developed.” I was an eighth grader with an endless supply of 35mm film and quickly learned that I didn’t want to pay to develop bad pictures. Composition and subject matter were of primary importance to me and the technical stuff came later in college. Fifteen years later I still cherish many of those 8x10’s that were produced in my college darkroom.
Working with my mentor in digital photography for the past five years has given me experience with not only weddings and portraiture, but also with commercial, event, architectural, and sports photography as well as proficiency with lighting. There are so many beautiful moments in the fading timeline of life that deserve to be documented. I see God in the beauty of our natural world and strive to capture His reflection in everything I do. Colossians 3:23
