My name is Dianne Noda and Studio Noda LLC is my photography business. I have over 10 years experience as a professional photographer. I have had my photographic work published and I have won some awards.
I grew up in beautiful New Zealand, then spent my first 16 American years in Hawaii. Hawaii is an amazing place but I quickly fell in love with Colorado when I moved here 20 years ago. I am delighted to call Colorado "home". My husband and I have two beautiful daughters, so life is busy!
The advances in photography over the last 20 years have been phenomenal. However, no matter how much technology changes, the basic concepts don't. Photography will always be about creating with light, whether on film or a digital card. The other invariables are the techniques of posing, putting people at ease and knowing when to press the shutter. This is where experience comes in.
I have a personal philosophy that it's important to "exist" in photos. Not just the phone photos, though they have their place. Think about the photographs you will be proud to hand down to future generations. You know how important our "old" photos are to our memories of childhood. How precious our photographs of great grandparents have become. It's important. Really. Take the time to do it.
When all is said and done, photographs and perhaps some words of wisdom are all we'll leave behind. And we know how much attention the words of wisdom will get... :)
Thanks for visiting my website. I look forward to working with you!
