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 board of Dallas Center for Photography.
