Matt Trudeau: SC Picture Project Photographer

South Carolina SC Picture Project Matt Trudeau

Matt Trudeau: A Talented Addition to Our State ...

The enduring popularity of the Waccamaw Neck and Grand Strand keeps us in search of great photos to go with the fascinating history of the area. Fortunately for us, Matt Trudeau of Murrells Inlet has been contributing his work to the South Carolina Picture Project for years. His spectacular images, taken from beloved sites such as Brookgreen Gardens and the Murrells Inlet Marsh Walk, give us a visual vacation to these timeless destinations.

Originally from the state of New York, Matt developed his talents as a photographer in the salt marshes of South Carolina. For those in search of a scenic escape to waters awash with plantation history, pirate lore, and – of course – local seafood, visit Matt's photos within the South Carolina Picture Project. Before long, you just might find yourself taking the day off and driving up US Highway 17.
