Matthew Turley abandoned his pragmatic medical path for a photography career in Salt Lake City.

Duration: Shooting professionally for four years.

Staff: Just me and my wonderful rep, Marianne Campbell.

Education: Graduated from Brigham Young University. Spent the first three years as a pre-med student studying physics and chemistry, then completely switched gears and spent another three finishing a BFA in photography.  Essentially I received one degree for the price of two. Abandoning a pragmatic career path was one of the best decisions of my life. The real education came later while working full-time as a retoucher/assistant with Andy Anderson, who has continued to be a great friend and mentor.

Cultural Influences: I haven’t had a TV for well over a decade now, so I’m often a little behind on pop-culture. Probably most influenced by classic literature, music and my time spent traveling and living abroad.

Environment: Wherever the job or project takes me, but I prefer working outside. My home office is heated with a wood stove, extremely well-organized and located less than ten minutes from some of the best skiing and climbing on the planet.

Philosophy: Work hard. Play hard. Stay inspired.

 

Photographer Matthew Turley grew up in Southeastern Idaho, to which he surely owes his affinity for landscape. Currently based in Salt Lake City, he's been shooting commercially since about 2006 and is represented by Marianne Campbell. When he's not working you'll likely find him skiing, climbing, traveling or reading by the fireplace.
