Chances are if you’re facing Matthew Jordan Smith with a camera in his hand, you’re an A-list celebrity. Or perhaps you’re a bright white polar bear. Or maybe an iceberg that caught his talented eye. Now Matthew is placing the camera in your hands and giving you the opportunity to learn from his 20-plus years of experience and inspirations. Or as he likes to put it, “releasing the secrets.”

With the aptly named Your Creative Experience, Matthew Jordan Smith is setting out on another adventure. This time he plans on dropping some serious knowledge for those who share his passion for the art of photography. “If you want to grow, especially when things are changing as fast as they are in our industry, you need to get more information, so I’m doing a full seminar. I’m teaching people, inspiring them in new ways”, says Matthew. As previous attendees have proclaimed, you will learn more in one day with Matthew Jordan Smith than you did in a year at college.

To make things even more interesting, we are running a contest with Matthew alongside the tour. The rules are simple. Good luck!
