Matthew Grant Johnston is a professional photographer living in Las Cruces, New Mexico. After studying art and photography at New Mexico State University, he began developing a portfolio of work that would eventually lead to the launch of his freelance photography business, GrantDeveloped, in 2020. Born in Butte, Montana and raised in Carlsbad, New Mexico, Matthew has called the Organ Mountains home since 2013.
Matthew is interested in taking photos that bring out inner joy and creativity of people and landscapes—whether it’s a couple’s love on their wedding day or an artist’s experimental project. Playing with lighting, color, and angles, Matthew strives to achieve traditional photos with an eye-catching bent.
Behind the camera, Matthew enjoys playing the electric guitar, cooking, and spending time with his girlfriend Emily and their two dogs, Alma and Gimpy.
