Anne Dalton, Freelance Photojournalist

After a 30 year career in public health, I left this field to follow my creative pathway. Photojournalism was the perfect opportunity to blend my research, writing and photographic skills toward a public good.

I’ve never looked back. In 2006, I spent some time in Tucson and eventually made it my new home.

I studied journalism at Pima Community College in Tucson for three years, published several stories in the student paper, The Aztec Press*.

* This paper was a 2010 national finalist for Society for Professional Journalists Mark of Excellence awards recently and won first place at the regional level in two categories for two-year colleges: best all-around newspaper and feature writing.  At the national level it made it to the top three. It continues to place every year.

Why Journalism?

Journalism offers the opportunity to be creative and keep the critical public conversation going about things that affect all our lives.  Whether informing the public or just reflecting on the world with its saving graces and endless contradictions, I want to be part of it.

Current Professional Activities:

  • I do articles and photo essays for print and on-line publications covering topics in healthy living and health care as it relates to those living in the Southwest.
  • I help non-profit organizations communicate their mission through photography and educational articles.
  • I produce videos explaining mission, services and results for non-profit and for-profit entities.

I expanded my skills to include videography and produced a mini-documentary in 2012 entitled, “The Price of Silence” about the invisible crime of domestic minor sex trafficking in Southern Arizona.
