About


Matt is an award-winning editorial portrait, commercial advertising, industrial, and sports photographer out of a southern town just a few minutes south of Atlanta called Macon. When he's not on assignment, he's more than likely watching his favorite soccer team, Arsenal FC. He's also an avid vintage comic collector who is one of a few people in the world to hold an original copy of the 1984 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1  first print! 

 Matt is available to travel for assignments across the US and internationally. He keeps his passport ready!
