Brian Matiash is a professional photographer and published author based in Portland, OR. He specializes in the visual storytelling of natural landscapes and foreign locations throughout his global travels. Brian has spent the better part of a decade empowering, educating and inspiring photographers all around the world with his tutorials, videos, and blog posts.
In 2015, Brian’s first published book, “The Visual Palette: Defining Your Photographic Style” was released by Rocky Nook. His primary purpose for writing this book is to illustrate the many mindsets, approaches, and techniques photographers can implement in order to apply their own unique stamp on their photos. Additionally, Brian has self-published several eBooks through his company, Matiash, Inc., including titles such as “Moving to Mirrorless: My Transition from a dSLR to the Sony Mirrorless System” and “Stories from the Lens: Volume I.”
Admittedly, Brian has a [not so] tiny obsession with long exposure photography, ND filters, and fisheye lenses. His passion is helping others help themselves with their pursuits of photography and its creative process.
