Matt Hopkins - Photographer
Matt Hopkins – photographer

I am a self taught photographer out of Tampa, Florida. I’ve spent years learning from others in the field and practicing what I learned. Photography is an ever evolving technology and I learn new techniques and tricks constantly. I created Escaping Auto Mode with the goal of helping aspiring photographers ditch auto mode and explore the full potential of their skills. You don’t need cutting edge gear or training to create beautiful photos. If you have the willingness to learn and are open to trying new things you can succeed. Don’t be afraid to fail as failure is how we learn. In this digital age it’s easy to get out there and try it again if it didn’t work the first time. Once you have mastered the basics you will see your photography flourish and it will be second nature just like anything else.
