Dominic Morissetteís first love was photography. Then he discovered film. Since 1991 this inveterate cinematographer has shot documentaries all over the world. From 1998 on he travelled the coasts of Canada and South Asia filming the lives of fishermen. His travels were depicted in a travelling exhibition shown in Canada in 2000. In 2003 with Catherine Pappas, who has always worked with him, he co-directed Les derniers chasseurs du petit havre, a feature-length film nominated for a Jutra Prize for best documentary.
The work depicted the daily lives of Nova-Scotian fishermen and their struggle to survive the moratorium on the cod fishery. In 2003-2004 he gave video and photography workshops to Afghan civilians as part of the programme of the Afghan Peace and Democracy Act (APDA). Over seventy young people benefited from his professional experience, and seven films were the result of this fruitful collaboration.
