Welcome to my photography website - the home of Matt Suess Photography. I specialize in fine art photography of nature & landscape as well as vintage Americana such as old trucks & cars and buildings. In addition I offer custom photo commissions and teach photo workshops & online courses.

Bio & Artist Statement:
A 17 year award-winning photojournalist career that ended in 2006 when I switched paths and went full-time with my fine art photography helped shape the type of person, photographer, and artist that I have become.
Early in my art career I struggled with the enhancement of my photography. Being a photojournalist for so long it was against our ethics to alter a photo much beyond the way the camera recorded it. It took me a number of years to remove those constraints and embrace my digital darkroom enhancements, for my artistic vision is much more emotional, intense, and real compared to what a camera captures.
Most of my work focuses on the beauty I see in the world, be it manmade or natural landscapes. Again influenced from my photojournalism days when we photographed a lot of negativity, in my current art career I primarily focus on the incredible beauty and color I see in the world and this joy is clearly evident in my work. My work is full of intense color, contrast & detail so refined my work appears 3-dimensional and back-lit, especially when it is printed on my HD Aluminum Masterpiece Editions.
