P&P Blogger Profile: Matt Kloskowski
It seemed like a natural way to get the videos and tips that I teach everyday anyway, out there in an easier way.
If you only had time to read three blogs a day, which ones would they be?
The Online Photographer
Scott Kelby’s Photoshop Insider
John Nack’s (Senior Photoshop Product Manager) Blog
How long have you been using Photoshop/been a photographer?
Photoshop – 14 Years
Photographer – 5 Years
What type of camera(s) do you shoot with?
Mac or PC?
I use both Mac and PC. Doesn’t really matter to me as Photoshop works the same on both. I use my MacBook Pro more lately because of its nice slim form factor for traveling.
What is your favorite piece of photo or computer equipment (other than your camera)?
My Epson R2400 Printer. I love it.
It’s a lens. The Nikon AF-S 400mm f/2.8. Wow… what I would give for that thing. I’ll post my B&H wish list should anyone like to purchase it for me : )
What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger. Advice, long work hours, impossible projects, and criticism… they may all be difficult at times. But in the end, they all make you stronger and better for it.
I just love it. It’s really all I’ve ever known. I never really think anything I do is good enough so I just want to keep trying to make something better.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Where would you most like to live (other than where you live now)?
I actually love where I live now. Living in Florida was my dream as a child so I’m already here. Aside from Florida, I guess I’d love to have a place in Tahoe during the winter. Or maybe even in Maui. I guess I’m undecided.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Golf, running, landscape photo shoots, but (most importantly) spending time with my family. My two sons Ryan and Justin (5 and 4 years) are just the coolest little guys to spend my free time with.
I’d love to be able to draw what I see.
