About Matt

Photography has been a passion of mine for many years. Starting with an old Canon 35mm film system, I transitioned into the digital realm, learning much about equipment and technique along the way. As I dabbled in various genres of photography, I found myself particularly enjoying my architectural subjects, but for some reason I didn’t see a possible career in that field.

In the meantime, I worked for seven years in the Architecture and Engineering (A&E) field, becoming a licensed professional electrical engineer (Oregon No. 74458PE, Washington No. 49719). My experience in that industry would be of great help to my future career in photography. I acquired or developed problem-solving skills, knowledge of computer systems and software, and attention to detail. Although I found the work to be challenging and interesting, I came to the realization that I just couldn’t do this forever; although I was successful, it really wasn’t “my thing.” About that time, I discovered that architectural photography was a significant profession in its own right, with real estate photography a major sector. After considerable research and practice, I took the plunge.

That was September 2014. I have been doing architectural photography full-time since then. Please browse my gallery and feel free to contact me with any questions about my capabilities and availability. I look forward to working with you.
