In addition to traveling the globe shooting much of our travel department’s imagery, you may also recognize many of Matt’s photos published in all forms of fly fishing media including the Drake and Fly Fish Journal as well as the use of his images in marketing and media for Patagonia Clothing Company, Costa Sunglasses, Loon Outdoors, Howler Bros, and much more. Matt is an avid angler, but almost never puts down the camera for the fly rod. He lives in Dallas with his wife Andi and golden retriever, Stinkley (Brinkley).
