There are good photographers, photographers people talk about, then there are those which are great. Matt Brandon, in my opinion, is one of those great photographers. His work is National Geographic quality work, as you can see from this recent image:
One thing that really makes Matt's work a little more special to me is he has ties to the area in which I live. Be sure to check him out at his site, The Digital Trekker, or connect with im on LinkedIn, Twitter, or Facebook.
