Matthew has always loved photography and the digital arts. Matthew has spent years in the IT field as a telecommunication technician. He has worked in that field since 1998, when he joined the military. Since that time, Matthew has continued to pursue his love for the digital arts by learning how to use Photoshop to perform basic picture editing tasks. While overseas, Matthew spent his off time studying and reading all he could about digital photography. He never thought to pursue it as a career until he was helping some web developers that needed product pictures. It was then he decided to work towards doing photography as more than a hobby.
