Incredible forces and influences shaped my style of photography and change and growth,” Dallas says. Though he’s been involved in various aspects of photography for almost thirty years, in the late 90s, he made a vow embark on photography seriously. “I’ve always been into photography, and enjoyed it since I was in high school. I would save my money and buy the most expensive camera that I could afford (and all the while the button never left AUTO) ignorantly blissful for years. Remember those moments of low light when you took an image and the shutter stayed open? You thought something was wrong with your camera? Well, that was yours truly.” Already proficient in film photography and developing, he realize it was time to “take it to the next level.”
