Not only is Matt a great photographer, but he also has that “Minnesota nice” personality trait, so he’s very willing to help people whenever possible. And that includes improving their photography skills.

In the coming days/weeks/months, we’ll be checking in with Matt as he provides tips for those wanting to improve their photography, no matter whether you shoot with an expensive DSLR camera and a variety of lenses, or a smartphone.
