Matthew Bamberg began his career in the arts as a graduate student at San Francisco State University in 1992. He completed his Master's in Creative Arts in 1997. His catalog of photographs consists of thousands of images from his travels in Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam, Argentina, Uruguay, Canada, Morocco, Russia, the Baltic states and countries throughout Europe. In 1999, Bamberg began photographing mid-century architecture and signage. His prints began selling locally and, later, all over Southern California. In 2005, Bamberg's book Digital Art Photography for Dummies was published. In 2008 Bamberg authored many books for Thomson Learning. His book The 50 Greatest Photo Opportunities in San Francisco, published in 2008, is still popular today. In 2009, his three books from the series 101 Quick and Easy Photography Secrets were published. In 2010, Bamberg authored New Image Frontiers-Defining the Future of Photography. In 2011, he authored Beginning HDR Photography and Photography Applications for Cloud Computing.
