When I have a camera and see a shot I take it. When I look at the picture later I say that’s the shot but not how I saw it. It’s just a picture. When I look at your pictures I say WOW I wish I could do that. Every picture I see of yours jumps out at me and tells a story or gets me thinking deeper than the picture. You have an incredible eye for detail and that is huge. Alan Diddle
Matt Denton, has been photographing life for more than 30 years. His unique style is hard to label. Not a wedding photographer, not a portrait photographer – he loves to tell stories with his camera. In the tradition of Life magazine he approaches every project with his observant eye. On more than one occasion clients have commented that they “forgot that he was there”. Never getting in the way, just observing and recording the event. The surprise when an old friend shows up, the delight of a child’s face when they achieve that long sought after sporting title or the musician who gets that fill they have worked on for years. Life happens.
When I first met with Matt, I described a vague story I hoped he would help me tell through photos. I asked Matt to deliver a tool that this organization could eventually use in a new public relations campaign as well as in outreach to major donors and sponsors.
He clearly understood what I needed because the products he delivered not only hit the mark, they exceeded my expectations. His positive disposition, reflective way of operating, and his amazing eye, make Matt special. He is professional, talented, passionate, and a pleasure to work with.
I highly recommend him for any photo journalistic project, or any other capacity in which he can use his talents and spread his excitement with others.

Matt’s breathtaking images transcend your wildest imagination. He can capture a moment, an expression, a thought, an object and bring it to life, as though you are experiencing it for the first time. All Matt’s photography conveys the passion and pride that is the driving force behind all his work.
