Deri Dority

Portland, OR


I started out with photography at a very young age. My first camera was a Brownie and I eventually worked my way up to a SLR film camera. I took quite a few years off from photography to work full time as an RN. When digital photography made its way onto the stage, I jumped back into photography full swing. I have taken workshops and course work from well known photographers such as Bryan Peterson, Jim Zuckerman, William Neill, Rob Sheppard, Tony Sweet, Joe McNally, Brenda Tharp, Lewis Kemper, Joel Grimes and many more. They have all inspired and helped me define my work moving forward. My photographs have been sold to privite collectors around the world. I love doing both landscapes and cityscapes. Most of my images are printed on metal, although I do have prints available using other media. My vision is to push the limitations of technology and create images that capture those very fleeting moments in time. 100% of proceeds from the sale of my images at the RAW event will be going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.


I am a very visual person that loves photography, quilting and triking. I am inspired by other photographers and artists that think outside the ordinary and open up new directions in their genre.


I love how RAW has artfully combined the many different creative disciplines into a cohesive community. It provides a unique service that is not available any place else.
