My Name is Matt Patterson.
Sometime during my first summer of having a “real” job, I couldn’t help but feel like I needed some fresh air to balance out the over-civilized, routine nature of my first few weeks in the corporate world. Little did I know that taking my camera on a day hike would lead to a summer of backpacking through America’s National Parks, or that it would lead to a love of splitboarding, or that I’d be jump head first into running trail ultramarathons. But, ever since I got my first taste of the wilderness, I haven’t been able to get enough.
Since those first few trips out with my camera, I’ve been lucky to work with brands from Lululemon and Evo to the National Parks Service, providing services ranging from shooting content for marketing campaigns and writing content for social media to testing products and leading community events. I’m passionate about working with brands and individuals that care about the environment, that love getting outside, and that believe deeply in the importance of developing communities wherever they are.
If you’re interested in working together on a project, I’d love to hear from you.
