About Page - Bob Mattera Photography


I am a full time photographer living in Wakefield, RI, where my wife Jackie and I have lived and raised our two sons, Dan and Eric, (2007 and 2009 SKHS graduates) since 1994. I was active in the  Wakefield community for many years, coaching Little League and Babe Ruth baseball teams and recreational basketball leagues, and am a past Cub Scout Den Leader and Cubmaster for Peace Dale Pack 1.

I was born in Providence and lived in the Elmhurst section during school years while spending summers at our family home in Narragansett, all of which I consider myself very fortunate for.

I spent most of my working life in a professional career, and began pursuing a lifelong passion in photography in earnest in 2012 by enrolling in RISD's Certificate in Photography program and taking on part time photography work, eventually completing RISD's program in 2015.

In 2017 I made the career switch to a full time photographer and began leasing studio space in the Palisades Mill in Peace Dale, continuing an amazing journey and transformation while following a life long dream.


The Team

Behind the scenes is a group that works with me either live or virtually, such as:

Dina Vibes

Dina is a Rhode Island native with a long list of experience as a photographer, hair and makeup artist, and stylist. She is a "one person show." Dina has a long list of Instagram followers (@DinaVibes) for the many fashion and creative shoots she has been a part of, largely in the NYC area.

She is a great team member and is available especially for HS Senior, Modeling, and Boudoir sessions.
