Matt and Alison discovered their passion for travel (and each other!) while living in Italy nearly 20 years ago. As newlyweds they discovered a mutual love of nature photography at an Audubon Society workshop in Maine. Since then, they have combined travel and photography with a variety of outdoor activities. From trekking in Nepal to safari in Africa, from backpacking in Patagonia to canoeing in the Boundary Waters, the camera has served as a constant reminder to pause and savor the subtle beauty of nature. As one of their favorite bands sings, “You get to know things better when they go by slow!”
While not on the road, Matt & Alison reside in Chicago. Matt teaches Latin, Greek and Ancient History at a private high school, while Alison teaches computer at K-8 public school. They have been active members of Riverwoods Nature Photographic Society for the past 8 years which they credit for helping them hone their skills.
