Hi! My name is Matt. I'm a full time professional photographer. I work with everything from fashion to pro motocross. I love teaching photography to eager students mostly because I've attended some very uninformative and uninspiring classes from some highly regarded schools. I came away from them thinking I could do a better job myself. I've taught students from RISD, Hallmark, Mass Art, UMass and others. They all say the same thing: "why didn't I learn that in college?". My teaching method is a real world, hands-on technique that simply explains how a camera works, thinks, and makes adjustments to exposure. Once you understand the camera, you won't have to remember much because you will already know what's going to happen before you press the button! I've been instructing different subjects since I was in my teens. I have a simple way of explaining very complicated theories.

Some of my photo clients include: Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University, Elle Magazine, Red Bull, Monster Energy, etc.

Feel free to contact me to discuss what I have to offer!

Photography

I love teaching photography! I'm a photo instructor at the Rhode Island School of Design and I've been told that I have a way of explaining things that is very easy to understand. I can help you think the way your camera does so you can capture much better images with far less guess work. I have hosted many workshops over the past few years. Students from MassArt, UMass, RISD, etc. have told me that they learned things in 2 hours that they didn't learn in several years of college! My approach is very straight forward and I won't bog you down with tons of tech babble. You'll learn with hands-on demonstrations that will help you understand why you are doing things a certain way so you won't have to remember old school 'rules' of photography. You'll be a better photographer in the first 15 minutes!

I'm equally comfortable teaching beginner level basics to high-end fashion lighting and everything in between.

My work has been published by companies like: Elle Magazine, Vogue, Red Bull, RISD, Brown University, ABC Sports, and many others.
