Print testimonials:

Laura, June 21st, 2016

"The (Cannon Beach Milky Way) print arrived safely last week. It was packaged well. It's beautiful! I love it! When I look at it, I feel like I'm the person in the image, immersed in beauty at the ocean's edge with the millions of stars sparkling above. Thank you for your professionalism and amazing photography! Sincerely, Laura"

"I purchased the badlands Milky Way print from Matt earlier this summer after meeting him in Glacier National Park. He gave my friend and me some pointers on using our cameras. After seeing some of his incredible photos I knew I had to have a print. I purchased the print in a 12"’x24"’ format with a black frame. I live in Anchorage, AK so I didn’t expect to get the piece for a few weeks. I had the shipment within the week! The quality of the print is outstanding, and the matting and framing looks professional. I am extremely happy with my purchase and it is now hanging in my living room. Thanks, Matt!!!"

Workshop testimonials:

Robert Victor, August 5th, 2016

"I attended a workshop with Matt in August 2016. His knowledge of the constellations and their movements is extremely vast. Add to that his ability to visualize and guide participants to artistic perspectives gives people a great advantage when starting out in astrophography."

Chiaki Nonoyama, September 14th, 2015

"After thoroughly enjoying Matthew's Ranger Talk about the night sky at the Mount Rainier National Park, I set up my tripod outside to see if I could manage taking the pictures. Although I had learned the basics of manual settings, I knew little of night sky photography and wondered why I couldn't press the shutter. Luckily, Mathew was still available inside and he was more than kind to explain the steps. He came out with me, suggested the settings for lens and camera, and explained pros and cons of particular combinations. I felt elated seeing the first images I captured and would have practiced for hours if it weren't for the clouds that moved in quickly to hide the stars and milky way. It was also fascinating and inspiring to see the breathtaking photos he had taken. I would have loved to attend more talks and workshops of night skies and photography. Big thanks to Matthew for this amazing experience!"

Sai Nakama, August 31st, 2015

"The one-on-one Q&A session about astrophotography with Matthew definitely had me assured I was on the right track. I learned how to use the histogram for getting proper exposure, as well as a number of ways of keeping everything in focus. I was also happy to learn a number of new ways I can use my image editing software, as well as some alternatives."

Shrinidhi Kumbaji, June, 2015

"I was a part of a night photography workshop on top of Mt. Rainier with Matt Dieterich and I have nothing but extremely positive things to say about the knowledge, passion and honesty with which Matt approached the workshop. He was very approachable and answered all my questions and even went to the extent of sharing a lot of the photos he had taken and the settings and process he had to go through to get to the final image. That is something I have not seen in other workshops. I had acquired a tremendous amount of knowledge on night photography, Astrophotography and Photoshop in the single workshop session with Matt. I would have loved to pick his brains more often and attend his workshops again but I was moving out of Seattle to Dallas. I wish Matt the very best and I'm sure anybody who is a part of his workshop will leave a happy camper with a lot more knowledge than they had started with. Thanks Matt and keep up the good work."
