Dale O’Dell was born in Dallas, Texas in 1959. He was given his first camera at the age of 13 and at that moment he knew what he wanted to do in life. As a teen, photography was the perfect blend of art and science and Dale immersed himself in the aesthetics and chemistry of the photographic process.
During his early years, Dale became familiar with virtually every photographic process and used them all at one time or another. As one of the early adopters of digital technology, one of Dale’s early digital images made history in 1983 when it became the first wholly computer-generated image published in advertising.
