Matthew discovered his love for photography back in 2006 while working as a photo lab technician. After developing 35mm film everyday as a technician, he wanted to learn more about the process so he decided to enroll himself in an Intro to Photography class at his local community college. Once enrolled in the class he became so enthused about the process of photography he immediately knew that’s what he wanted to pursue as a degree. When realizing the photography program was going to be cut out of the curriculum, Matthew chose to transfer schools and pursue his Bachelor of Arts degree at Bridgewater State University in southeastern Massachusetts, majoring in Photography and Graphic Design. He also studied abroad in Florence, Italy where he was introduced to Fashion Photography and Photojournalism, which he thoroughly enjoyed. While attending Bridgewater State University, Matthew not only learned about the process and history of photography both in digital and film, but was he able to be partake in multiple internships with a local portrait photographer as well as a weekly magazine in Boston formally known as the Boston Phoenix. While at the Boston Phoenix, Matthew photographed many popular restaurants, neighborhoods, and music artists in Boston. After graduating Matthew received a position as the campus photographer at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY. There he was responsible for the majority of the imagery for their yearly catalog to market the institute. Now he is freelancing and very excited to join the team at Image 1 Studios, ready to meet and photograph new people on a daily basis in the Boston area.
