Meet Matthew Wolfe

My family moved around quite a bit when I was growing up—from Virginia to Hawaii and Rhode Island—and I took photos wherever we stopped. Since settling in Portland, I’ve worked professionally for publications like Stumptown Footy and Rose City Review, where my shoots from Portland Timbers and Portland Thorns matches have featured prominently, and I’ve spent time as a team photographer for the Portland Winterhawks. I also work with individuals, small groups, and small businesses, including Flipside Hats, Katie Mudd Ceramics and West Building Company. I love meeting new people and helping my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera—it’s a process of bringing out natural smiles and light. One of my favorite things about photography is the opportunity to create significant moments that produce beautiful, memorable photos.

Portland Winterhawks

(2018—Present)

As a team photographer, I shot full coverage of home games. my photographs included key action shots, and they have been featured on official team and league websites, as well as Dub Network which is a Winterhawks blog.


Stumptown Footy 

(2019—Present)

I covered in game action for this SB Nation Blog. This was a great experience with a nationally recognized blog.

Rose City Review

(2020—Present)

I have been featured more prominently on this newly created website that follow the Portland Timbers & Thorns. It has been great fun to see this website get started and be able to help them reach more readers with my photos.

Experience

Frederick Keys (Class A Affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles)

(2014—2015)

After spending a season as a camera operator, I became a full-time video production assistant in 2015. As such, I supervised game-day camera operators, created video and graphic content for in-game display, and served as the technical director on game days

 

Tennessee Smokies (Class AA Affiliate of the Chicago Cubs)

(2016—2017)

I left the Frederick Keys to gain more responsibility. With this new position I was now making graphics to be used on billboards around the stadium and on promotional merchandise including t-shirts. I also took on the extra job of creating content for our local cable access show that showed behind the scenes moments and interviews with staff and players.
