It's maybe a bit of a cliché, but I love seeing the beauty in everything, but especially helping people see the beauty in themselves. We all deserve to be seen, to feel affirmed in ourselves. Sometimes doing that for ourselves is the hardest part, which is why stepping in front of the lens can be so important.
Beyond the job of photography, I also love the art of it. My camera has been a constant companion on hikes and camping trips, giving me perspective on the world around me. I also love the strange, gothic and macabre, which informs some of my personal creativity.
Interviews & Press
Hi Matt, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Like most of us, my story isn’t one straight line. I’ve lived what seems like a thousand lives. Professional kitchens, gin stills, coffee houses, newsrooms. I once lived 10,000 feet, deep in the High Sierras. Chicago, California, Colorado, and countless adventures in between.
What's in a name?
“How about Foolish Endeavors?”
That was pretty much it. We all have these desires, these passions that others have told us won’t work out, won’t make us money. I think that’s a load of bullshit, to be frank. I wanted the name of my business to tease that idea, that we should all pursue our foolish endeavors and I’d be right there to help, whether it was creative consultations, photography, writing or editing.
