About Me

Hi! My name is Matt Shiffler and I love to make great photographs while having a positive impact on other’s lives.  I am a professional photographer in Cleveland, OH where I freelance for the Plain Dealer and Great Lakes Publishing.

Growing up as an avid fisherman, my photography evolved from my love of nature and the outdoors. My photographs focus on the beauty of the Midwest and documenting parks all over the United States. I recently returned from a year teaching English and photographing across Southeast Asia. I am also currently working on a portrait project to give back to Vietnam Veterans.

I love the opportunity to meet new people through my travels. Please feel free to send me a message with assignments, events or portraiture at . Then come visit my new photo gallery at 16101 Waterloo Rd, Cleveland, OH!

“Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Publications “Fight for Air climbers scale Key Tower for charity” “Painesville residents gather to speak out against gun violence”
