I just wanted to post some new projects that I have been working on. I came up with this idea the same way I usually come up with many of my crazy ideas... Sleepless nights. I swear I should start drinking coffee before I go to bed because this is an example of the thoughts that go through my head whe

Around this time last year my fiance Jenn and I were in India for the
I took these photos quite a while back, I'm not sure why I hadn't posted them until now. If you want to see more of these portraits, go to my portfolio site: www.mattdpictures.com
I just wanted to share some more Cyclocross photos, these are from the event out at PIR. I don't really have much to say except that I have met a lot of cool people at these events, and that I love shooting them. This is like one of the only activities to shoot in Oregon during the winter.
Hey folks, I don't mean to sound like a broken record but I have more photos to post of Cyclocross. I believe this to be my favorite set so far. At some point I will get around to adding Cyclocross to my
I just wanted to share some recent photos I took for Portland Monthly magazine. I've shot quite a bit of the sport over the years. I decided to take a break from it since I only use film and the
I have been itching to shoot some new stuff while fighting the lack of motivation due to the Portland winter. It can be hard in this town to find projects to shoot when it's cold, dreary, and the light is completely flat. I decided to embrace it and came up with this the idea to shoot winter apparel.
I recently put this ping pong shoot together, it was a blast and I got some great portfolio work from it. A lot of photographers have a tendency to photograph the same sports, especially in Portland. I can't say that I blame the photographers here for shooting running and basketball, I mean look at ou
A few weeks back Justin "Scrappers" Morrison from The Mercury asked me to shoot the Westside Guide, which is an insert in the weekly paper that featu
Portland had its annual Gay Pride festival back in the spring (I know I should have had t
About four months back I spent two weeks in So Cal visiting family. I had heard that there was a new skate park in Venice from a good friend of mine that lives there. Anyway, I had been wanting to take my nephews Daniel and Brandon to the skate park, not only to skate but also to snap some pics.
So I am just mentioning this because I am really excited. My art show at Rontoms located in Portland, Oregon has been somewhat successful so far. The show has only been up for a few weeks and I have already sold three prints and seven framed photos. Before the success of the show I was a little
I took a five week trip to Thailand a couple years back and I'm just now getting this slide show up somewhere that people can view it. I originally did a presentation slide show a few months after I came back from the trip which had a really great turn out.Now I would like to sha
I just want to thank everyone for coming to my show last night, I had a super duper time. I saw faces that I totally didn't expect to see. You guys are all awesome!I especially want to thank everyone who helped me with this series by wearing an animal suit, helping me build
I can't believe I just started going to these Cyclocross events, they kick ass. These events give me an excuse to shoot film, and they are super fun and exciting to watch. These photos are from the race in Hillsboro a couple of weeks back. I shot some photos at th
Hey all, come join me for my Character Series art show at
So I was going through Lightroom and I stumbled upon my "Dudefest" photos. "Dudefest" was one of about four celebrations of my good friend Brian Ripka's marriage. This particular occasion was his bachelor party. I had mixed feelings about
So I was just on Portland Monthly's website because I figured I might check to see if the photos I just took for them made it on there. Fortunately my photos are on the site; unfortunately Andy Batt has the photo
While I was on the playa of the Alvord Desert this crazy storm came in just after I got my yetti shots. Instead of opening my shutter and creating the standard lightening photos I decided why not shoot video. After all my 5D mark II creates amazing video so why not use it. This video has been slowed down to 25%
