Dallas Morning News Photographer
My Life on the Street
Robert W. Moore Photography
A proud native Texan, Robert W. Moore spent 37 years in the news, media and publishing business. In 1984, he was one of the founders of Voice Publishing Company, serving as Advertising Director until 1998 when he became sole owner and publisher. He left the company in 2013 to pursue his interests in travel and photography.
The Press Club of Dallas honored him in 2015 with the prestigious Excellence in Journalism Award, dubbed the North Texas Legend Award, for “amazing accomplishments and contributions to our industry, our community and North Texas.”
In 2017, the Press Club of Dallas awarded him the first annual Hugh Aynesworth Award for News Photography for his iconic images of the July 7, 2016 Dallas police ambush in which five Dallas police officers were killed and nine others were injured. Robert’s images of that tragic event were published by news outlets across the globe.
Today Robert’s focus is Documentary and Street Photography in locations around the world including Iran, India, Myanmar, Japan, Vietnam, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Cuba and the streets of Dallas, his hometown. He defines his photographic approach this way, “I look for scenes that are just everyday life, yet call up an emotional connection, a human to a place. Without that connection, it may be a great picture, but it has no soul.”
Robert currently serves on the Dallas Center for Photography Board of Directors.

My Journey Through Photography
My interest in photography began as Freshmen in college, a group of us bought some darkroom equipment and jumped into it as if we knew what we were doing. We didn’t, but it was very much a learning process. And I was hooked.
What I would like to do in this session is to address…briefly…how I got started in photography, my development as a photographer over the next several decades and, in some greater depth, how I’ve been spending time, photographically speaking, over the past ten years.
I am not a technical wizard by any stretch and this is not a ”How To” program. I’ve learned to simply shoot what I like, what appeals to me aesthetically or emotionally. It took a long time to figure that out. This program is designed to share a little bit about the path taken to get there.
Jim got his introduction to photography as a serious hobby at the University of Texas in Austin in the 1960’s. He spent many hours experiencing the wonders of the darkroom over the next few decades.
On retiring from a career in banking, he was drawn to the world of digital photography. Jim became a member of both the Plano Photography Club and the Dallas Camera Club in 2012. He served for three years as Competition Director for the Plano Club follow by another two years in the same capacity with the Dallas Club.
His photography interests are broad including landscape, street photography, contemplative photography, sports photography and lots of pictures of five grandkids.
