Matthew Card, a Binghamton native, studied photography at the Rod Serling School of Fine Arts at Binghamton High School and has been active in the field ever since. Having lived in Binghamton his whole life, Matthew has spent the last 20 years capturing the beauty of our great city and has done work for many companies including Lauren Studios, the Binghamton Mets, the BC Jets, the Lee Barta 5K Walk/Run, and First Night Binghamton. In addition to his experience with these companies, Matthew also owns his own business (Matthew Card Photography) and has been the leader of the local branch of the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk since 2009. He has been exceedingly active in various photography circles in our area and has launched/is admin for multiple photography groups on Facebook, both locally and nationally, such as the Binghamton Photographers Network; Southern Tier Photography Workshops & Events; and Macro & Close-up Photography. ♦ Matthew began his career in photography by working for Lauren Studios as a sports photographer. However as most photographers’ do, Matthew’s style has changed a lot throughout the years. Throughout this transition, he moved on to shooting the majority of his work as fine art by the way of night photography and High Dynamic Range shots. In addition to his experience in the field, Matthew has also been published by McGraw Hill in a 5th grade science textbook titled Macmillan Science: A Closer Look, Grade 5 Student Edition. Matthew work’s has also been published in the Press & Son. Bulletin and on multiple covers of the Goodtimes. Since then, he has launched an annual art gallery event called Art of Binghamton; a gallery that consists of pieces of the area, comprised entirely of local artists. Also incorporated into Art of Binghamton is the AOB Music Fest, an all-day music festival which showcases the arts of the local music scene.
John Carroll ♦ My approach to creating a painting is to do every work as if I'd never done a painting before, to avoid the pitfalls of academic "rules" when in practice there is only one rule in oil painting, which is fat over lean. I attempt to express my view through a combination of realistic image and the principles of abstraction and design, along with a love of vibrant color.
