Matthew J. Valdez

Over the past twenty plus years, experiencing nature and photographing her beauty has been my form of relaxation and spiritual fulfillment. I am continually drawn to the beauty of the mountains, deserts, wildlife and wide open expanses of the American West.

I am largely self-taught in the photographic arts. I have learned by reading articles, viewing images of other photographers and learning from their craft has also has been part of my self taught education. I have found the best teacher of all though to be experience, and shooting on a consistent basis.

As I began shooting with film, photography was only a hobby. With the arrival of digital cameras, photography has become a passion.

I carry my camera wherever I go in hopes to capture that perfect moment!

If anyone is interested in purchasing my prints, please feel free to e-mail me @ Mjvaldez69@msn.com, Thanks.
