My name is Matthew Lettington. I'm a lifelong Vancouver Island resident, father, adventurer and blogger. I have a background in visual art, I have a Bachelor of Fine Art from NSCAD University. Explorington.com is my current project. It blends my passion for the outdoors and my photography.
The written word doesn't come naturally to me-- it's a work in progress. I've spent two decades developing my ability to communicate visually and now I'm working on my writing. I'm documenting my adventures, and my family's story one adventure at a time.
Thank you for joining in my adventures. I want to hear from you. You may comment on posts or use the contact form to send me a message.
Sincerely, Matthew Lettington
Guiding Principles & Core Values
I Document Everything
I come from a Fine Arts background. This is why I struggle with my identity. I'm not sure if I'm more adventurer or artist. I travel with my camera to capture rare moments in obscure places.
I Pursue Excellence
I'm a life-long-learner. Wheather its building new skills for photography or video, building a new website or learning to repair my kayaks, life is a journey of learning.
I Create Possibilities
Vancouver Island is an amazing place to live. Adventure may be found everywhere but sometimes the trick is knowing where to look. I promote stewardship of our backcountry and part of that is inspiring everyone to use it. The more we use it and fall in love with it, the more connected we are to it and want to protect it. As we learn to love it we appreciate it for what we could lose.
I Want to Hear From You
You may think that because I'm focused on my own journey and crafting my own stories that I am not interested in yours. I am interested in yours!
