Profile (BW).jpg

I'm Matthew Hunter MacDonald - a picture taker, outdoor recreationer, and coffee brewer (human, not machine).

As I've grown older, my interests have veered further apart. A background in coffee, a deep rooted love of music, and a passion for the outdoors all led me in wildly different directions, but photography has become the common thread. The work shown here is diverse and always evolving, but it showcases the things that are most important to me and highlights a few of the opportunities I'm most proud of. While photography is near and dear to me, I also work extensively in social media, community management, and content strategy.

I'm based in Salt Lake City with my partner and our dogs Tanner and Juno where I spend the bulk of my time on human-powered adventures, exploring Utah’s wilderness and backcountry areas via trail running, backpacking, or sliding on snow.
