Mat Chacon, Shooting from the Front Lines

Mat Chacon is a recovering CEO turned award-winning conflict photographer. He’s traveled to high-risk conflict zones across the globe and uses his photography to shine a light on the darkness of social inequality. His photos have won numerous accolades, and have been displayed around the world in galleries, photography magazines, fine art publications, and featured by the Smithsonian.

Learn about his journey from building software companies to his life changing, near death experience that inspired him to follow his true passion for photography. Mat is using his photography to inspire people into actions of enduring transformation that help our fellow human beings improve their stations in life and succeed where prosperity and peace might otherwise only be a dream.
