Judy Dater was born in Hollywood, California on June 21, 1941 and grew up in Los Angeles. Her father owned a movie theater, so movies became the prism through which she viewed the world and they had a profound influence on her photography. From 1959 to 1961 she attended UCLA, majoring in Art. In 1962 she moved to San Francisco and completed her education at San Francisco State University, majoring in photography.
