Diane Woodcheke has had her eye to the viewfinder since she was very young, using her mother’s camera every chance she could. She studied photography in high school and in 1986 got her first SLR camera. As the world of photography turned digital, in 2006 her digital era began. Diane was born and raised in Queens, NY. In her early teens her family moved out to Long Island. As an adult, over the years, she has moved further and further east on Long Island. Currently living on the North Fork, she has a never-ending supply of interesting subjects and beauty that can only be found in this region. This is her inspiration for the ongoing “Visions of the East End” series. As a fine art photographer she enjoys capturing fleeting moments in nature or just the right light in a landscape scene. She has won numerous awards in juried exhibitions including Best in Show. She regularly displays her work in galleries and museums throughout Long Island. She has had her work published in local magazines, newspapers and websites. As an event photographer she has the pleasure of catching once in a lifetime moments for people to cherish forever. She shoots weddings, corporate, private and non-profit organization’s events. Her photography is not only used as keepsakes, but is used in print, advertising and websites.

The Riverhead Town Hall art exhibits are a collaborative effort on the part of East End Arts and the Township of Riverhead to support local artists and introduce their works to the community.
