Last week, Brian and I were so happy to be able to spend some time with our friend, photographer Matt Eich. Matt was visiting for work, but we were able to grab dinner and drinks one evening and have a lovely bagel picnic and portrait in Prospect Park the day before he left.
I first met Matt while he was studying photography at Ohio University, but until last week, it had been almost four years since we'd seen each other. I, for one, am glad; we've both done a lot in four years. In four years, we were both married, Matt and his wife had a daughter who is now three years-old, we've both lived in several cities and states, and we have both been paving professional paths that have taken us to various parts of the world. It is encouraging to meet other young professional artists who are busy and loving it.
In addition to his personal work and long list of awards and honors, Matt is a founding member of Luceo Images, an up-and-coming photography collective with an established client list of national and international publications. On Luceo's website, Matt recently posted a blog about his NYC trip.
Matt is truly an inspiring individual as well as an incredibly gifted and talented photographer. He is intuitive, compassionate, and genuine, and his ambitions and optimism are sincere and encouraging. It was so great to see him, and we can't wait to see what he does next.
Right on, Matt.
