Matthew DiRoberto

I was working on this event for 4 years before I was able to finally get it off the ground in 2016. It started when I was at Greater Media Boston, we were going to do this event and have our 5 radio stations promote it. After realizing that they didn’t really want to take the risk to invest in something like this, I decided to quit my job and do it on my own. Read more>>

Several years ago my Mom passed away and I helped my Dad with the process of sorting through her belongings and organizing their home.

Photography was always a passion of mine from very early on when I was a teenager (30+ years ago). One of my first jobs was working at a one hour photo lab processing film. That is where I picked up my first fully manual film DSLR, a Pentax K1000 (I am still a Pentax shooter to this day). Read more>>

I photographed my first wedding before I even graduated high school. One of my teachers had an old friend that needed a budget wedding photographer, and I jumped at the opportunity. I rented a backup camera, didn’t sleep at all the night before, and took thousands of pictures on the wedding day. Read more>>

I’ve always had a love for photography but I didn’t know what direction to go with it. There are so many different people, places and things to capture that it can be quite overwhelming to choose a path to speciaize in. The path was chosen for me when I had my first baby. Read more>>
