Hi, my name is Matthew Partsch. I am a fine art landscape and wildlife photographer living in Los Angeles, CA.  I am a Mechanical Engineer by day and a landscape and wildlife photographer every other time of the day.

My love of the outdoors makes for frequent forays into the Californian wilds, where I delight in the stunning vistas of Los Angeles Beaches,  and the Pacific Coast.

My company name, Blue Cloud Photography, comes from a picture I took in 1997.  After sunset the high clouds were dark blue, while some lower ones were bright orange and it only lasted seconds - I ran into the house, grabbed my camera, and snapped the picture - it sparked a never ending quest to capture that moment in time to capture that blue hour light.


Thank you for stopping by for a visit! I  hope you enjoy my photos and I encourage you to reach out to me to connect on social media (instagram).

Have an Awesome day!
