Profile and About Matthew Rakola Photography, Washington DC matthew@matthewrakola.com

The Skinny

Matthew Rakola (né Hakola) was raised in a small college town in Maine, the son of two professors. Growing up in a university environment gave him ample opportunity to make mischief but with enough wicked smart people around that he probably should have known better.

He became a photographer to meet interesting people and find himself in unusual places. This mostly satisfies his natural curiosity about the world and the folks who call it home.

He's available to travel anywhere (show me a photographer who isn't) but gets to live just outside of DC with his beautiful and very patient wife, Betsy, and their freakin' adorable son, Alex.
