Matthew Meyer, The Great Lakes Member Since June 2012 Artist Statement I have always had a passion for photography. I've been snapping pictures as long as I've been able to lift a camera. To me, there is nothing better than capturing the beauty of the great outdoors. Macro and nature are my favorites. I put much effort into my work. Manually adjusting my dslr camera while exploring in all elements. If its walking through feet of snow in sub-zero temperatures, kneeling in thorns waiting for a butterfly to land on a flower, or just getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. If there is a shot I see I'll try to get it.
