Matthew “BeardedOkie Photography” Pyle has been involved in photography for most of his life. His childhood dream was to become Peter Parker and to shoot photos of superheroes and supervillains. It became a reality when he began photographing cosplayers regularly. He works with costume artists to achieve their desired look and feel, to showcase their workmanship in an artistic format. BeardedOkie Photography has shot thousands of cosplayers at hundreds of professional shoots, cons, and charity events across five states.
