About - Matt Taggart

Trained in empirical science, Matt's process is technical with simple post processing reminiscent of darkroom technique (dodge, burn, exposure adjustments etc).

Matt employs a small amount of HDR in his landscape photography but opts for an under processed more realistic than surrealistic result.

His situation, with in the Great Lakes of Canada allows for wonderful escarpment scenes, and landscapes centered around the shores and beaches of the lakes.

Matt primarily shoots on digital equipment, but takes time to expose film because the result has a different feel, and the process slows him down.
