Over the years, I’ve gone from fumbling around with a point-and-shoot to (somehow) convincing publications such as the New York Times to let me photograph my own stories. A rather too-large portfolio of my work is up on Flickr, and if you’re interested in hiring me to shoot something, well, just e-mail me at worldmatt at worldmatt dot org.
And, since people always ask me this question, I’ll tell you what I shoot with. Primarily, I use the Panasonic Lumix GF-1, a Micro 4/3 camera that’s small and light and fast. I have three lenses, the 20mm pancake and the 14–140mm and 45–200mm telephotos, and if I have to use a tripod, it’s probably a GorillaPod. I also still love my Lumix LX-3, which is wonderful in low-light conditions and is particularly tiny. Should you get them too? I don’t know! But check them out and see what you think.
