Matt Shannon is an inspired nature and landscape photographer living on Vancouver Island. His images have captured an international audience and his artwork hangs in homes around the world. He has developed a keen eye for detail and a passion for striking images. He is an enthusiastic teacher and hosts regular workshops aimed at inspiring and equipping photographers.
From a young age Matt Shannon was captivated with the wild world around him. He grew up in a small town in New Brunswick where from a young age he would practice his survival skills camping in the dense forest. After high school Matt leapt out into the world, falling in love with traveling. He lived in South America, Asia and India and drove across North America 9 times. It was his exploration of new places that first inspired his love of photography. Matt loved that the lens allowed him to share these new worlds with his friends and family back home.
Matt still remembers his first trip to Vancouver Island 13 years ago when he spent the night on Mystic Beach on the Juan de Fuca Trail. He fell in love with the rugged coastline, massive trees and the endless adventures Vancouver Island holds and has called the Island home ever since.
Matt’s photography is the product of his adventuresome heart - it’s the physical representation of his love for striking landscapes and beautiful natural creations. Today Matt continues to explore the west coast and capture compelling images to share.
