    This experience has been excellent. Matthew has tailored his instruction to my son's experience level and goals. He has provided excellent communication and encouragement. We highly recommend him.

    He helped me from figuring out where to shoot to my camera settings, through all of the little details in taking the shots. I learned a lot in just a few hours of night photography! Highly recommend working with Matthew

    Working with someone that is both active and passionate like Matthew gives you a real life professional reference and an experience to the learning process that can not be matched.
