Antonio Morton Butt was born in Mexico City and grew up in Ciudad Satelite, a northern suburb. In 1993 he moved to London and enrolled in Goldsmiths College, University of London, where he studied Art and History of Art. Photography took a hold of him there, and once he saw his first photograph appear in the development tray, he was hooked. He packed his bags and was off to California to study at the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography. He received a Bachelor of the Arts, B.A. degree with honors in 1999 and was awarded the Photography Departmental Award. He also earned a PADI Dive Master Certificate which facilitated him to be known in Mexico City as an "all terrain" photographer for his ability to seamlessly transfer from high end architecture and fashion, to underwater, travel, portrait and editorial photography. Antonio worked as photo editor and chief photographer for Mexicana Airlines in-flight Magazine; Vuelo, circulated by Grupo Editorial Expansion. Antonio's photographs have been published by the group's different magazines in Mexico and Latin America: Travel & Leisure, Chilango, Elle, Quien, Proceso, Balance, Life & Style, Vuelo and Quo and he has travelled to five continents for assignment photography. He seems at home in any terrain where there is light -natural or self made- and a means to capture it.
Back in California he attained a Master of Arts, M.A. degree in Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He devoted his time there to becoming proficient in Photoshop. In addition to traditional photography, Antonio specializes in bringing to life visual equivalents of complex human emotions, ideas and concepts through his composite work. He also offers advanced post-production and retouching work to clients and is a Phase One Certified Professional.
He lives in Sausalito, CA.
