Hi there. I'm Brian.
Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy the photos that you see and the stories that you read here.
My name is Brian Matiash. I am originally from Brooklyn, NY but am now based in Portland, OR, and am a photographer who has been pursuing and growing my particular brand of imagery since 1996.
By day, I serve as Google's Global Photos Products Evangelist, leveraging my knowledge of the photo industry and working with key influencers, partners, and consumers to bring awareness of the Google+ Photos products and platform. I'm also proud to be a member of Sony's Artisans of Imagery program.
In addition to being a photographer, I am a published writer and lover of all things social media. I'm a regular contributor to Photoshop User Magazine and Photoshop Elements Techniques, as well as an author at Photofocus. I've also been a featured speaker at the Google+ Photographers Conference and Photoshop World and my work has been featured as part of F-Stop Gear’s ‘Life In Focus’ video series and Scott Kelby’s ‘The Grid’ and ‘Photoshop User TV’ programs.
Admittedly, I have [not-so] tiny obsessions with long-exposure photography, neutral density filters and tilt shift lenses. Basically, my passion is helping others help themselves with their pursuits of photography.
