Photo + Video + Film

The proliferation of digital photography gear – from DSLR cameras to helmet cams to waterproof camcorders – has given everyone, from freelance photographers to travelers, an unprecedented ability to capture high definition images from wherever they are.

At the same time, photo and video editing software and blog layouts customized for image galleries have made everything from producing travel movies to presenting your photography portfolio fully manageable from the road.

Matador is proud of the photographers and filmmakers in our community. Based all over the world, they’re redefining what it means to be a travel photographer or filmmaker. Join us in supporting their work as well as get photography and filmmaking tips and participate in workshops and complete travel photography programs at MatadorU.
