Monte Morton Photography
I am an amateur photographer with many national & international photography awards. I have been voted best in show at Solo’s 11th Juried Invitational Exhibition of Visual Arts, featured in National Geographic and was featured in the first iPad issue of National Geographic, featured on front page of The Dispatch (Ocean City Md News Magazine), featured in Shore Life Magazine and featured image for Visit Pennsylvania and Harrisburg Pennsylvania city website and many more.
I believe that photography is art. And I believe art is interpretation and communication. That is to say, we are each artists to one degree or another. And our photography is a unique expression of our view of the world and our interpretation of reality.
In recent years, fine art photography has gained wide acceptance with collectors, museums, investors, art brokers and auction firms. There is something special about a well crafted fine art photograph and exclusive fine art prints have become a popular way to invest in them.
My photographic interests lie in capturing the Chesapeake Bay and the rural Pennsylvania landscapes, covered bridges and the unique lifestyles of the Amish people that live there. Although the Amish are typically hesitant towards outsiders, especially those who possess a camera, I’ve been fortunate to establish personal friendships within this tight knit community.
Viewing my photographs of the Amish is a personal experience. Opportunities to see the Amish as they work, live and play are rare, and to experience an intimate kinship with them is all but unheard of.
I have had a passion for photography since I was a child. My uncle worked for Eastman Kodak and would visit every summer with his Rolleiflex med format camera and I was hooked. After taking a photography class in high school I have since had a camera in my hand.
As you view my photos, I hope you’ll see what I see and feel what I feel. You’ll know when that happens, because you’ll think, “I want to go there!”
Artwork you hang on your wall is a statement of individual taste and I am honored that you would consider my fine art prints. I invite you to join our family of collectors enjoying the fine art photographs of Monte Morton in their home or office.
