www.mndanceportraits.com is a service of Matte B Media Productions, LLC, the creators of Minnesota Dance News. Matte B Media Productions specializes in dance and performance art photography and is available worldwide to capture your moments in the best light.
Matt grew up in Papua New Guinea, where his parents still live, and has a passion for dance of all kinds. He grew up dancing the native tribal Siiburu dances as a child using bamboo and other "bush" instruments. Since moving to Minnesota, Matt has taught himself photography and web design, building his first website, www.mnsportsnews.com and working his way up from covering youth and high school sports.
Matt has had a freelance photography contract with the Star Tribune since 2015 and his work can be found weekly in the Sunday Scene + Heard feature found in the Variety section. See the web versions at www.startribune.com/style and look for "Scene + Heard" titled articles.
In October/November of 2016, Matt built www.mndancenews.com, a sister site to www.mnsportsnews.com dedicated to covering Minnesota's high school dance scene. Rick Corwine has contributed photos and, along with Matt's photos and stories, the Minnesota Dance News community has grown.
