Matt’s Story

Hey… I’m Matt… And… I AM NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER. Well, at least not a working pro, and I never have been. I’m just a guy that likes to shoot, edit – and likes even more to help others do the same.

I’m a Tampa Bay based photography educator who’s day to day job is running this website, and creating courses and presets to help you with photography and photo editing.

I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay area since 1991 and will probably never move (I love the beach!). I have a beautiful wife of 20 years and two sons (18 and 16) who I’m extremely proud of.

Okay next… I’m kind of opening up here about my past a bit. So here goes… For years, being in the photography industry (but not necessarily being a full-time working pro), I really tried to establish myself as a photographer because, well, it seemed like that was the “cool” thing to do.

But I knew people really came to me for my education. And interestingly enough, that’s what I love to do the most…above anything… to teach, educate and help people make great photos.

So a few years ago I decided to own that role, and be very intentional about it. My goal is to bring you the best photo editing tutorials, as well as to help you get better at capturing great photos as well.

Back in 2016, I decided to take owning that role even further and went out on my own here at https://mattk.com to help people learn photo editing and photography.

I have ZERO ego attached to my photography and everything attached to my teaching and education. Because of that, I hold nothing back. No secrets, no insider tips that I keep to myself.

In fact, the absolute best thing that I could ever see / hear is that some one who took my course (or watched my videos) becomes better than me. That means I’ve succeeded in my job as an educator, and well… stories like that just make me really happy.

Special Thanks to Lee Friedman, GNPA Alpharetta Chapter Coordinator for setting this up.
