With two grandfathers and two uncles who were hobbyist photographers, Matt comes by his affinity for the craft naturally. It was a moment during his sales training at Kodak in January of 1993 that crystallized his passion for it. A presenter from the digital imaging division showed a photographic print of San Francisco Bay that had numerous elements seamlessly inserted into it. Not a big deal today, but 30 years ago it took a $200,000 workstation to do this. As he began exploring the field, the marvelous work of Yousuf Karsh captivated him and steered him in the direction of portraiture.
