So, yeah… there’s another photographer named Matt Roth out there. Professionally, he goes by Matthew Aaron Roth, but to all his friends he’s Matt Roth. Luckily we shoot different subjects. I’m more of a portrait & editorial guy, and he’s an “adventure” photographer. Our only overlap is food photography, I guess. …which is delicious, isn’t it? A few days before this shoot, he contacted me on Facebook to see if I was interested in meeting up with him in DC before moving back home to Long Island.
He gave himself a year to see if he could make it in DC after graduating from the Corcoran, but times are tough.
His timing couldn’t have been better for me, though. Since I’m doing this One Portrait a Day project (which I’m kinda failing at), and considering I’ve wanted to start a “Matt Roth” project, I figured, this was an opportunity not to be missed.
So, we met up in Georgetown, and he took me to a rock wall at Rock Creek park in Georgetown Monday, August 22, 2011, where he and his buddies sometimes climb, and we traded portrait shoots.
All in all, it was really good meeting Matt. I held a little resentment towards him, and I’m sure he did towards me, because we were just that other guy with the same name in the same industry, and probably causing too much confusion for each other. But after meeting him, he fleshed out as a real person.
…but for real. If anyone knows another Matt Roth — ESPECIALLY THE NFL PLAYER — please send me an e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org I’d love to keep this project going.
To see a few more photos of the other Matt Roth and, like if you’re Matt’s mom, dad, aunt, or secret admirer, this link is also the place to buy prints, and other things like coffee mugs, t-shirts, a KEEPSAKE BOX, and, believe it or not, playing cards.
