Photographer - Adventurer - Guide - Co-Founder, Hunt to Eat
Mahting Putelis is an adventurer, entrepreneur, and photographer who seeks to elevate the conservation conversation. After attending Prescott College, Mahting started off as a mountain guide and educator. He spent more time outdoors than in and developed a broad skill set for communicating with groups of people and managing the complexity of adventure travel. Drawing on his artistic side, he evolved into an adventure photographer, capturing moments of human movement in wild places. As an adult, he uncovered the hunter within and identified a need in the market for hunting apparel that speaks to the conservation ethic of many hunters. He co-founded Hunt to Eat, a lifestyle apparel brand, with the goal of each item being a conservation conversation starter.
