Locations for Fun Photoshoots

Dallas McGhee-Henry

Hey All, I’m Dallas! When I’m not studying at the University of Michigan, I enjoy taking photos! Photography is a wonderful art to practice. It’s beautiful to catch little pieces of time or manipulate an experience to visualized something that the eye sometimes can’t even see.

I’ve been practicing photography for 3 years now and love all forms photography. I would say that I love portraiture and story telling photography the most though. It’s something about capturing people that I absolutely love. You really get to connect with a person when you are taking their photos. Personality is showcased perfectly in photos.

Storytelling pieces allow us as individuals to put together the pieces by examination. Such a joyous experience.
