About Matt

Growing up in Minnesota has provided no shortage of inspiration for artist Matt Addington.  From the glass-like waters of the north to the rolling wooded hills of his farm south in the Sogn Valley, Matt has created magnificent landscapes and captured images of the wildlife and lifestyle abundant in his home state.  And he’s spent his life capturing images for industry clients; hunting, fishing, and seeking adventure all around the world from above the Arctic Circle in Alaska to the rugged western Rocky Mountains to wild savannah of equatorial Africa to the wide open prairies of Middle America.

Matt has paddled the canoe, traversed the ridge, and sat quietly in tree stands.  He has summited over twenty five 14,000 foot peaks and guided folks through the mountains of southern Colorado and untouched waters in northern Minnesota and Canada.  He gets it…and this translates into his images.  There is nothing false about this work.  The authenticity of his passion for the outdoors is apparent in every click of the shutter.

Matt received his Bachelor’s Degree in art from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD and his Master’s Degree from Winona State University. In addition to his passion for shooting in the outdoors industry, he is an educator and award winning portrait & wedding photographer where he incorporates his gift for outdoor imagery into the photos he creates.

Though Matt’s traveled the world with his cameras, he lives with his wife and three children on a farm overlooking Sogn Valley south of Cannon Falls, MN where he spends much time hunting whitetails, turkeys and morel mushrooms as well as making maple syrup.

Wide Open for the Weekend. Whatcha got going for your Quarantine Memorial Weekend? Hope it involves big skies and fresh air!
Super excited about a partnership this year with @visitcranelake (and some trips to the border)
Discovery. We love to spend time in the woods in the early spring on the hunt for #morelmushrooms. They’re kind of mystical and a true treasure to find and eat...but only if you know where to look!

My Favorite Farmer.
Dusk Double Up. Another amazing night here in Minnesota where these two 24 row planters scramble to finish up the soybean planting. What an amazing #plant20 it’s been. Last year, most farmers STARTED planting this week. This year, most are finishing up...an early record even for the old timers. • • • #outdoorphotographer #thisismyMN #onlyinMN #naturephoto #main_vision #landscape_captures #awesome_earthpix #natureaddict #rsa_rural #awesomeearth #agphotography #gottalove_a_ #farming #instanaturelover #artofvisuals #dronephotography #beautifuldestinations #uav #agameoftones #exklusive_shot #dronesdaily #peoplescreatives #droneporn #dji #djimavic2pro #dronestagram #drones #dronephotography
