As a Korean adoptee growing up in rural NSW, Matt has always been fascinated with the mountains and remote destinations featured in his parents’ National Geographic magazines. Following university, he set off on multiple trekking expeditions across South America. Armed with a small point and shoot camera, Matt fell in love with exploring and photographing the natural world. Shortly after returning home, he then set off on a 3.5-year journey around the world, working across various vocations, all the while taking more and more photos.
In 2017, Matt embarked on a project for Olympus Australia across Central Asia and has been since working closely alongside them as an Official Ambassador. What he loves most about photography is the incredible locations you get to document and the amazing people you meet along the way. Sharing in those ‘Wow’ moments amplifies the experience in a way no other vocation can compare
