Matt Mendelsohn Photography

Rooted in journalism and fine portraiture

Matt Mendelsohn has been a photographer for 39 years, though his passion for photography started long before then. Back in Mattlin Junior High School, in Plainview, New York, Matt vividly remembers seeing an image appear on a piece of paper floating in a tray of liquid. The rest, as they say, is history. After a career in journalism at United Press International and USA Today, he now is the founder of Matt Mendelsohn Creative.
