Matthew Meier is a professional underwater, nature and travel photographer living in San Diego, CA.
His fascination with nature and animals began at an early age, but it wasn’t until Matthew’s senior year at the University of Michigan that he became a certified scuba diver and extended that fascination underwater.
In 2000 Matthew began working for the Navy’s Marine Mammal Program training dolphins and sea lions. This experience led him back to school to combine his passion for photography with his love of nature and the underwater world. He was formally trained as a commercial photographer at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, completing their Master’s Program.
Matthew’s images have been published in various magazines, books and calendars, numerous environmental campaigns and are available for stock licensing on his website. For more of Matthew's work visit his website at : Matthewmeierphoto.com
