2021 Photo Workshops

"Matt is a super nice guy, easy to get along with and excellent instructor. Knows the places, the cameras and how to make photos that are really creative. He is extremely knowledgeable and communicates well both in the artistry and technical realms, and should write a book on Photographing the Tetons"

"The hands on and supportive teaching made for a great experience.
I loved that we had a small group so that we got lots of one on one teaching.

It was a nice balance of the iconic views and some places that are less commonly photographed.

I’m glad that we got to do so much every day. I was exhausted but I wouldn’t change it.

Thanks for taking the time to teach us to be better photographers!"

"As with any outside landscape/wildlife workshop, a lot depends on the weather, animal behavior/time of year and other factors (crowds) that the workshop has little control over. 

However, when circumstances weren't 'great' for where we were and what we were trying to do, you always brought up the concept of looking for something else to work on while at the location. And many times, just plain patience was all that was needed to bring in that 'AHHHH' moment.

I think the way you handled the workshop was as near perfect as any student could ask for."

Do you want to become a better photographer?

I think I can help!

I have been teaching photographers how to get better ever since I started teaching my fellow photojournalists how to transition from film to digital in the late 90's.

For years now I have been specifically helping landscape & nature photographers become better at photography through field workshops & online courses.

Join me on one of my workshops and let me help you find or develop your own personal photographic voice & vision. Each workshop is carefully prepared to give you ample opportunity for becoming a better photographer through both 1-on-1 and small group coaching. 

My mission is to share my love, experience, and knowledge of photography with you so that you can become better and have more fun creating awesome photographs.

I look forward to seeing you on one of my workshops, and if you ever have any questions as to how I can help you become a better photographer never hesitate to contact me here.

Even though I now shoot with Olympus full-time, it doesn't mean that you have to as well. I am quite experienced with many cameras (especially Canon, Nikon & Sony which I have shot with before) and all brands are welcome on my workshops 😊

Fine Art Photographer and Olympus Educator

Photography has always been a huge part of my life starting at the age of 12 when I had my own black & white chemical darkroom. That early interest launched a full-time professional photography career that began in 1990 and continues today.

For the first 17 years of my career I was a photojournalist based in New England. I am a digital photography pioneer and began teaching digital photography to photojournalists in the late 90’s, helping bring digital cameras to two different newspapers. I was awarded the 2003 New England Press Associations Photographer of the Year award for my work at the Cape Cod Times. During my time as a photojournalist, I also photographed weddings & portraits, as well as corporate & commercial assignments.

In 2006 I decided to leave all of that behind and move West, where I am now a fine art landscape & nature photographer, educator, and publisher. In addition, I also accept select luxury resort & architectural photography assignments. 

I teach numerous field & classroom workshops throughout the year as well as online courses and I provide occasional free online webinars. You may have already seen my videos for software companies such as Skylum and ON1. My passion for sharing and teaching what I have learned during my long career is evident in my down-to-earth and encouraging approach with my students.

I am sponsored by Olympus as an Olympus Educator. One does not need to shoot with Olympus gear though to take my workshops.

I live in Bozeman, Montana with my fiance and fine art painter Whitney Hall and our two blue heeler cattle dogs.
