Hi, and welcome. My name is Matthew George. I have had a life long love of photography since I was twelve years old. My father built me a black and white darkroom in the basement of our house when I was in high school. From that I was able to experiment and hone my photography skills. I use traditional film and digital Nikons.
Two unique pieces of camera equipment I have used to photograph is an Apple iPhone and Polaroid SX-70 camera. Most of my photography consists of photojournalism and nature genres.
Schooling and Work I have an Associates degree of Applied Science in Photography from Antonelli Institute of Art & Photography, as well as a BA and MA in Business from American InterContinental University. I hold a single subject Visual Arts teaching credential from National University to teach in high school as well as a multiple subject teaching credential to teach elementary school. Here are some of the content standards for teaching Visual Arts in California.
I currently am employed by JUSD as a photography and art teacher at Rubidoux High School. Family I am married to the most beautiful woman, have a wonderful son and precious daughter, and blessed to enjoy lots of quality time with my family.

Maybe that’s what attracted me to it. Maybe it was the fact that my father let me use such a special piece of equipment of his own. More than anything it was probably the idea that me and father somehow became closer from the exchange of interaction with the photography. It was almost like a special bond that was formed from
