Dallas Poore, San Diego, CA Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I began my photography career underwater after developing a passion for scuba diving while deployed to Okinawa, Japan with the U.S. Marine Corps. My passion has since spread to above-water endeavors, but I feel most at home shooting animals and nature. I am a digital SLR photographer who has traveled all over the world looking for interesting photography subjects. My most recent trip was July-Aug 2007, when I spent 17 days traveling through Italy, Greece, and Turkey. I hope you enjoy my work!
