How Photography Helps Me Tell Your Story

My name is Matt Stagliano and I’m a portrait photographer in Maine.

Ever wonder how I traded in corporate life for the lens? Dive into my story with this insightful video. It’s all about my unique journey to establishing a thriving photo studio in the charming small town of Bethel, Maine, home to Sunday River ski resort.

Photography isn’t just my job; it’s my passion for making personal connections with amazing clients like you. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that nothing else can match.

For those who love a good listen, I’ve got just the thing. Check out my in-depth studio tour and listen to my featured episode on The Portrait System Podcast. It’s a treasure trove of insights on building a successful photography business from the ground up. Don’t miss out on these exclusive behind-the-scenes stories!

The Journey Is What Matters

I know what it's like to be uncomfortable in front of the camera

Life Is Way Too Short to Have Uninteresting Portraits

Self-portraits are my canvas for sharing vulnerability. It’s my belief that if I can’t do it, how can I ask you to? That’s why I’m often the first to jump in front of the camera. Whether it’s experimenting with new ideas or creating art that reflects my current mood, it’s all part of the process. This way, when you come in for your portrait experience, I’m fully equipped to help you express whatever you’re feeling.

I’m all about having a good laugh at myself and, through photography, I’ll show you how you can discover beautiful, new aspects of yourself.

So, why not give me a ring? Get to know me a bit and see if I’m the right portrait photographer for you.

Why I Do What I Do, For You

Over the years I’ve had a lot of different positions in a lot of different industries. Every job or venture has helped me grow and get closer to my true path: photography. I wouldn’t change a minute of it.

I feel like I was put on this planet to be a guide to help others discover more about themselves. I’ve always enjoyed teaching and managing and leading others, and at this point in my life, photography is the tool I use to do that.

I LOVE helping people explore parts of their personality and talking through their innermost thoughts. When we come to a better understanding of ourselves, we just tend to be better humans all around. I can show you the REAL you that hides deep inside. That person that is waiting to explode onto the world’s Main Stage.
