Matthew Lerman has been photographing nature since he was a little boy. His dad taught him how to develop and print photographic images. The first picture he developed was an x-ray of his broken toe when he was eight years old! An author and former professor of biology, marine ecology and oceanography, Matthew is now a full-time photographer dedicated to highlighting environmental wonders surrounding our lives.
His background in biology and love of photography have forged a deep appreciation for the land. The myriad of intricate connections within the biosphere have inspired a deep and abiding understanding of our world. Matthew feels that, importantly, photography allows him to capture and portray a sampling of the biological events occurring .
