Growing up on a farm in Ohio, Dana Moffat never imagined he would be photographing swimsuit models and wedding ceremonies when he moved to California. Moffat, 70, grew up around an uncle who used cameras from the 1900s to photograph nature. That uncle sparked his interest in the art form, prompting him to take photography classes in high school. Once he started college in the early 1960s, he accrued his college credits in photography but never earned his degree. Moffat, a Glendale resident, aspired to be a photography teacher, but the idea of having to take courses in math, history and science to become a teacher didn’t appeal him, he said.
