Matt Newfield


Matt Newfield is a nature photographer from Vancouver Island where he lives with his wife and two children. Matt’s photography journey started when he was only 13 years old after receiving his first film camera. From that point forward, his love for shooting the outdoors became the passionate hobby that it is today.

As an avid adventurer, photography has always been a creative outlet for Matt allowing him to share his perspective on nature. In recent years, Matt has found himself shooting in Olympic National Park to the rugged coast of Oregon and beyond. Matt is always searching for those intimate scenes where light, moment, and composition come together to create something beautiful. Through photography, his aim is to convey a sense of mood and feeling, capturing the viewers’ attention and imagination.
