Matthew Quaid,

Anchorage, Alaska.

I was born and raised in Anchorage and developed a love for being outside at a young age. When I started taking pictures, I quickly became hooked on capturing my adventures to share with friends and family. I began spending more and more time outside, sometimes sitting for hours to study the landscape and surrounding wildlife. Years later, I find myself in the same position, spending long periods of time to get that perfect shot. I’ve had the luck of both witnessing and photographing many great spectacles of nature that will forever remain in my memory.
