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 photographer every other time of the day.

Follow me on Instagram @the_bluecloud

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), or stop by my gallery in Crafted in San Pedro, CA, or send me an email to chat!

Have an Awesome day!
