Ashley Landis grew up in Plano, Texas. She received her first 35mm camera for Christmas when she was 16, and became the teenager who packed more film in her suitcase than clothing. Before attending the University of North Texas, her parents told her she needed to choose a major. She looked through the list, stopped at Photojournalism, and has never looked back. After earning her BA in Photojournalism at UNT, she moved to central Texas, where she started her professional career. Ashley worked as a staff photographer, general assignments reporter, multimedia editor, copy editor, and did whatever other jobs needed to be done, at the San Marcos Daily Record. After four years there, she made the jump to freelance. As a freelance photojournalist, Ashley worked for almost every publication she ever wanted to work for, including the New York Times, LA Times, Chicago Tribune and Wall Street Journal. She was very happy as a freelancer, but she wanted the opportunity to photograph professional sports. She joined the photo staff at The Dallas Morning News in December 2014, and has been covering sports at all levels, major news stories, and so much more.
