Helping you make great photos!

Hi, I’m Matt! I’m a Photoshop, Lightroom, ON1 (and whatever other software you wanna use) Guy that helps people navigate the crazy waters of photography and photo editing

My Story

Hey… I’m Matt. I’m a Tampa Bay based photographer and educator who’s day to day job is running this website, and creating courses and presets to help you with photography and photo editing.

I’ve lived in the Tampa Bay / Clearwater area since 1991 and will probably never move (I love the beach!). I have a beautiful wife of 20 years and two sons (18 and 16) who I’m extremely proud of. 

Okay next… I’m kind of opening up here about my past a bit. So here goes… For years, being in the photography industry (but not necessarily being a full-time working pro), I really tried to establish myself as a photographer because, well, it seemed like that was the “cool” thing to do. I worked at a company for 10 years who’s primary job was education but yet we all wanted to call ourselves photographers.

But I knew people really came to me for my education. And interestingly enough, that’s what I love to do the most…above anything… to teach and educate and help people.

So a few years ago I decided to own that role, and be very intentional about it. My goal is to bring you the best photo editing workflow, as well as to help you get better at capturing great photos as well.

Recently in 2016, I’ve decided to take owning that role even further. As of July 1, 2016, I’m officially on my own. With the help of my wife, we’ve founded Matt Kloskowski Photography and Training. Hopefully the name says it all ?

Talk to you like you're sitting right next to me

The biggest thing I try to do with my education is to make it approachable and easy to listen to. I try to talk to everyone in my videos like you’re sitting right there next to me.

My Approach

While many pros do come to me for training, my main audience is kinda like me – people that simply love photography. People who want easy-to-follow training on how to capture better photos, and how to make those photos look better with Lightroom and Photoshop and ON1 apps to add my “style”.

Most people I talk to aren’t making a ton of money (or any for that matter) from photography or post-processing. They just really enjoy it and want to get better. And heck… if they can sell a few prints, or shoot a few events to make some extra cash to support photography… even better!
