Matt is an award-winning photographer based in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, the traditional land of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation and Chief Drygeese territory.
His images focus on community and conservation, exploring the inter-connectedness of the species that call this planet home, and documenting the existential threats of climate change and biodiversity loss. He believes conservation photography can tell impactful and globally-relevant stories, even when the species and stories are local or familiar.
Matt has been a regular contributor to The Narwhal, where he has written articles and shared images on the Porcupine caribou herd, the toxic legacy of large-scale industrial activities, and the sustainable energy transition underway in some of Canada's most remote, northern communities. He also writes for photography industry outlets like ShutterMuse, where he has interviewed leading conservation photographers and used photography equipment reviews as a means of introducing a broader audience to conservation issues.
Matt has been an accredited member of the Professional Photographers of Canada since 2013, with an accreditation in Photojournalism.
