Matt Forero is a photographer and filmmaker based in Santa Monica, CA.

I started photographing and filming my friends skateboarding when I was a teenager.  Capturing the trick was half the excitement, but developing film in the darkroom and pulling all nighters cutting together a film to produce a monument to a Saturday afternoon was as thrilling as skateboarding itself. Through these experiences I discovered that my goal in life is to bring joy to others through the use of photo and video.

I currently offer beginner photography and videography workshops to share my knowledge and develop skills in others. I talk to countless people who buy an expensive camera only to leave it in automatic mode and never reach its full potential. I enjoy teaching others to take control of their cameras and see the benefits of using a DSLR (or mirrorless!) camera as a tool to capture images and tell stories..
