Matthew has lived in five different states and did a bit of growing up in each. Originally from Southern California, Matthew grew up on the ocean and is obsessed with water. Matthew spent his formative years in the Rocky Mountains, and eventually ran a mountain biking photo-adventure company in the Bay Area with a good friend during photography school. 

As a recent transplant to the Gulf Coast, he’s thrilled to be back in the water while still being surrounded by forests. When he’s not shooting or occupied writing about himself in the third person, he spends as much time in the water as possible with his lovely wife and two dogs. 

Whether the assignment is photographing private jets, the Olympics, or the latest creation by a local chef, he takes a deliberate, fun, and creative approach to image capturing and editing, and is especially pleased when an assignment includes travel. Matthew is thrilled to be a part of the Modus Photography team and represents that in his work.
