I met Matt working at Meetup in 2013, which was around the time I started to explore photography more seriously. He's not one to brag, but I eventually found out he had a degree in photography from a prestigious art school. When I naively asked him how to get better he simply said "take more photos."
When Matt volunteered to talk to me I was jazzed because he has inside info on what goes down inside the walls of a world-class photography institution. I wondered if there was any way I could bring elements of what works inside a classroom to the app I'm building. I was also looking forward to hearing that laugh again—and I was not disappointed.
