Wealth of Experience

With four decades to work on his craft as a newspaper photojournalist and freelance photographer, Matthew Thayer has learned how to get “The Shot,” the image that captures it all, as well as the supplemental pictures that round out assignments and thrill clients and editors. While clients have flown him to assignments as far away as Ireland and Switzerland, Thayer is based primarily on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Areas of photo expertise include, but are not limited to, Corporate, Event, Photojournalism and Portrait.

Thayer has won more than 16 first place photography awards for shooting a wide variety of subjects — everything from plantation
workers and cowboys to spot news and action sports.
