Matthew Tholl

Near-native Nevadan Matthew Tholl was born in South Lake Tahoe, lived in Gardnerville, and recently settled in Fallon. Earlier interests included airplane gliding, exploring Tahoe and surrounding areas by hiking, backpacking, and various water sports - but he believes he has found his true calling in photography. It wasn't until his move to Fallon in 2009 when he began taking classes in the field of criminal justice that he found photography.
