    Hey all, my name is Matthew Schwartz.

    I do fine art nature photography, including wildlife, macro, etc. I'm less of a documentary photographer and more of a "fine art image" creator.

    I tend to be a bit extreme in my approach (lots of gear, wearing camo, laying in mud, crazy set up shots, etc)

    I also do a bit of blogging and videos to share my passion and ideas with others

    Looking forward to interacting with everyone and hopefully adding some valuable comments to the discussions

    If you'd like to see some of my work you can check my flickr (I'd link my website but don't want to get blocked for being a spammer)

    Thanks

    Having had a look at your work I think the extreme stuff you do works! You have some really outstanding photography in there - looking forward to seeing more of your work and hearing about how you went about getting such shots!
