MATT ORD, California
"Matthew Ord is an Environmental Science Major and Film/Digital Photographer located in Southern California. His goal as a landscape and ocean photographer is to inspire people through photographs to get out of their house and into the world. In our world today its easy to get caught up with technology, social media and Smart Phones its no wonder we're labeled as the laziest generation in history. With all these distractions we neglect the importance that the outdoors holds. People are missing out on these profound moments of peace, happiness, and wellness that can only be absorbed by placing oneself within the environment. Contact with nature is an crucial part of our well-being as human beings. Life is too short and there's too much to see."
