About Me


Matthew Ireland:  Boston-based photographer

Matt at the Berklee Beantown Jazz Festival

Thank you for stopping by my photography blog.  Although I’ve always loved taking photos (and still have several old poloroid cameras), I began getting serious about photography after shooting jazz and hip hop shows with a digital camera in order to illustrate concert reviews I contributed (as a volunteer) to a Boston-focused blog (long since gone). That sparked a passion which has grown and evolved over the past 10 years. I now concentrate on nature, landscape, urban lifestyle and macro fine art photography. As an environmental and endangered species lawyer, I’m particularly inspired by wildlife and the natural environment. As a life-long lover of architecture, design and urban spaces, I often explore and photograph my city, Boston. You’ll find examples of all these subjects in my galleries, along with images of Maine, Fire Island, Key West, Taos, Paris, New York, and my hometown, Omaha.

I am also a Getty Images contributor. My Getty photos have been licensed around the world by firms ranging from Epson, Microsoft and Bank of America to local advertising agencies and travel websites. Four of my photos appeared in American City Calendar’s Omaha calendar for 2012.

Prints of most of the photos on this blog, on my photography website and on my Flickr account are available for purchase in a large range of print sizes and in glossy, matte or lustre finishes.  See here for prices and more information on ordering prints.
