Matt Dutile is a New York City based travel and lifestyle photographer. He grew up in a small New Hampshire farm town before venturing west seeking buried treasure, as most explorers do.
He’s a problem solver and story teller, an experience maker and fun creator. Sometimes he rhymes. Mostly he smiles.
Matt has the absolute pleasure to spend his life doing what he loves; traveling the world, making people laugh and capturing the energy of the moment forever. He believes that great photography is not just about captivating images, but creating an enjoyable experience for both client and crew. He hopes you'll be one of them.
Also, he finds talking in the third person slightly ridiculous.
PWB asked Matt a few questions about his upcoming project with DIG:
What makes you passionate about helping Development in Gardening (DIG)?
Development in Gardening (DIG) is an organization that really resonated with me. We take for granted our access to basic food and nutrition, and have a hard time truly understanding what it's like to live without that. It's one of the fundamental necessities of humanity. The fact that DIG not only provides help in the immediacy, but in the long-term is what really impacted me. At the end of the day it's about empowering communities in need to create the lasting change they need to live fuller, richer lives.
How do you believe your photography can make a difference for them?
It would be hard to deny our world has become far more image saturated and concentric in the last decade. Digital photography and mobile phones have created an explosion of visual content in our world, and how we process it. Creating a library of images for DIG will help them meet the visual language we communicate in today, in order to create further awareness and grow the organization. Putting a human face on their mission can make all the difference.
What message would you like to send to your supporters?
We live in a global world. When you help lift one person, one community, one collective out of hardship and give them the tools to succeed, you lift humanity. I hope you'll help us in this most-worthy of causes. Anything you can do is incredibly appreciated. You help can change lives.
