Matt Banderas '04 is a Whitman graduate. Originally from San Diego, California, he relocated to Walla Walla and hasn't looked back. A photojournalist at heart, Matt strives to create imagery that is beautifully honest. He worked for nearly eight years as a photographer at the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin before circling back to Whitman. He lives with his wife, Margarita Banderas '05, and kids Nico and Sophia (future Whitties?). When not creating images, Matt is often playing outside, cooking (because that leads to eating) and cycling or playing soccer to balance out the eating.
