Antonio Morton Butt was born in Mexico City in 1973. He grew up in Ciudad Satelite; a northern suburb of Mexico City. In 1993 he moved to London and attended Goldsmiths College, University of London, where he studied Art and History of Art. Photography attracted him at this time 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 graduated with honors in 1999 and received the Photography Departmental Award. He also attained 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. Before moving back to California to attain a Masters in Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Antonio worked as photo editor and chief photographer for Mexicana Airlines in-flight Magazine; Vuelo. Antonio's photographs have been published by Grupo Editorial Expansion and their different magazines in Mexico and Latin America: Travel & Leisure, Chilango, Elle, Quien, Balance, Life & Style 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. In a new-found fascination with composite work, Antonio specializes in bringing to life visual equivalents of complex human emotions, ideas and concepts.
He resides in Sausalito, CA.
