Matt’s photography career started in Yosemite in 1995. He was climbing a route on El Capitan and had brought an SLR camera with him. He and his partner spent 3 nights on the rock and he realized that he had to document this experience for his “non-climber” friends and family to see. From that day forward, photography became part of his lifestyle. He traveled around the country for the next 10 years or so living in his Volkswagen Westfalia and photographing his climbing adventures and doing occasional editorial work.
