Photo of the Day: In 2 days I head out to one of my favorite National Parks - Grand Teton National Park​ - to teach a sold out photo workshop. I can't wait to get back! I photographed this dramatic scene there last June.

Photo of the Day: In another week I will be back in Grand Teton National Park​ getting ready for the start of my sold out spring photo workshop there - can't wait to get back!

Registration will soon open for my 2017 Tetons Spring Photo Workshop so keep an eye out for that or consider my 2016 Tetons Fall Foliage Photo Workshop which still has a few open spots.
This was photographed at sunset at the popular Schwabachers Landing in Grand Teton National Park. Beavers have dammed the Snake River here providing photographers with a mirror-like surface when there is no wind. I photographed this scene just as the sun was setting behind the Tetons while scouting locations for an upcoming photo workshop I was teaching there. This is a 4-minute exposure. The long exposure provided me with a great streak to th...

Photo of the Day: It is the last night for Whitney Hall​ and I in North Scottsdale until November/December when we return again for Celebration of Fine Art​ starting in January of 2017. What better way to leave the desert than to share a photo from an amazing sunset here where we were staying, this photo taken 3 years ago. Tomorrow we head back to Montana for the summer.

FYI you can purchase this photo and others in my new online photo galleries with a 20% discount all this month using coupon code "NEWGALLERY20".

As always, feel free to share :)

Introduction

I am an award-winning professional photographer whose career spans 22 years and counting. I began my career as a photojournalist working in New England. Published worldwide, some of my publication credits include: The Associated Press, Boston Herald, Connecticut Post, Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod View Magazine, National Geographic Traveler Magazine, New Haven Register, Sojourns Travel Magazine, and USA Today to name just a few. In 2003 I was awarded the New England Press Association’s Photographer of the Year Award, an award presented to me for my photojournalist work throughout the entire calendar year.

A digital photography pioneer, I helped bring the first digital cameras to the Connecticut Post Newspaper in the late 1990’s. In addition I assisted with the implementation and training of the photo staff in the use of digital cameras and equipment at the Cape Cod Times Newspaper in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Throughout my photojournalistic career I had the opportunity to photograph Presidents, celebrities, professional athletes and sporting events, as well as local news and events.

Since 2003 I have been selling my artwork at fine art festivals first in New England and now currently throughout the greater Southwest. In 2006, when I moved to Arizona, I left my career as a photojournalist behind and have since been a full-time artist. I exhibit in the finest juried art festivals in CA, CO, AZ, NM, OK, UT, WY, and TX. 

Rather than rely on simply what the camera captures, I enhance each of my photos in my digital darkroom to bring back out and share with the viewer what I personally saw and experienced. It is this personal touch, vision, and unique style that truly separates my work in the photography field.

Since becoming a full-time artist, I have acquired collectors worldwide. I have also been interviewed numerous times on TV, in print, and online. I currently live full-time in my RV traveling, photographing, exhibiting and teaching workshops throughout the Southwest.  

My very popular blog and portfolio is available online at  www.MattSuess.com. Visit for behind-the-scenes essays, tips & tricks, my exhibition schedule, information on photography workshops, online photography classes, and more.
