Ellen Denuto, I have been watching the world through a camera for as long as I can remember which began seriously as an art student in college. Initially using myself as a model when brilliance came in the middle of the night- my personal vision and photographic voice began to emerge.


When I am not busy shooting, you can find me teaching others how to. My purpose is to help others find their voice whether guiding them to see life through the lens of the camera, or by telling their stories through my photographs. In addition to a successful photography career I am also a certified K-12 Art teacher holding a BA and MA in Education and Photography. This has allowed me to teach photography on all levels, and hired to work with schools in the creation and instruction of photography programs. I presently consult and adjunct at NYU’s School of Continuing Education,The College of St. Elizabeth and the Deron School for the Handicapped. My workshops and lectures have been presented to PPA and ASMP- NJ Chapters, The Hallmark Institute of Photography, and other institutions in the tri-state area.


I am a founding member, past president and current VP of the ASMP-New Jersey Chapter. Other professional affiliations have included Minolta, Ilford and Agfa Corporations, The Image Bank, Photonica and Getty Images.
