At heart, I am an artist. My passion of photography began as a teenager; working with film while developing and printing my work in the darkroom. While I enjoy working with film and medium format, currently my portraiture captures are digital. Having an extensive background in art and art history (presently studying and working toward a Master of Fine Art Degree in Photography), I delve deeply within the finesse of an image...capturing a unique view of an otherwise ordinary scene through creative composition, form and movement.

EXPERIENCE

Dianne Morton Photography | Owner Photographer 2013present

With a deep understanding of artistic formal elements and all functions of the camera and photographic processes, I shoot solely in manual mode offering a vast amount of artistic vision and distinction. My digital work is captured in color with further editing and manipulation in Photoshop, allowing imagery in both color and black and white.
