In our latest podcast, I had the privilege of chatting with Matt about his work, the future of the industry and his journey of photography.  Take a seat, get comfortable and gaze at some of Mother Nature’s beauty as we introduce you to Matt Kloskowski and his stunning landscape photography.

In my recent interview with Matt below, we find out details of how the industry is evolving, the changing of tools/post processing, how to succeed as a photography instructor and the future of Kelby Training.  Matt’s interview starts around 57:00.

In addition to his photography business, Matt resides in Tampa, FL and is currently a full-time Director of Education for Kelby Media Group.  And if that’s not enough, Matt works as the Editor-in-Chief of Lightroom Magazine and the lead instructor on the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom LIVE Seminar Tour.  Matt also hosts the world’s top Lightroom blog,, where he’s built up a massive library of Lightroom videos, presets and tips. In addition to teaching Photoshop, Lightroom and photography seminars around the world, he’s an instructor at Photoshop World and one of the full-time staff writers for Photoshop User Magazine.  And if you can believe it, he also has time to hug his kids and hit a few balls on the golf course.

Matt made his national TV debut in 2012 on the Hallmark Channel in a featured segment, along with an Adobe Lightroom demo on the Home and Family show.’s editors picked his Photoshop Compositing Secrets book as one of their best photography books in 2011 in the art and photography category.

If you’re wanting to up your game in photography and post processing methods, I encourage you to head to Matt’s website to find more info on his books and resources.  You won’t regret it.
