Chris Baylor


For Chris Baylor of Austin, Texas, attending A&M-Commerce was the logical choice to continue his education after hearing great things about the university from his professors at Collin College, many of whom were A&M-Commerce alumni.

“All of my [community college] professors expected nothing less from me than to get my bachelor’s degree,” Chris said. “A&M-Commerce had the only commercial photography program with a strong network of alumni who are active in the Dallas photo community.  It would not be unfair to say that A&M-Commerce alumni make up a large part of the Dallas commercial photography scene.”

Chris’ love for photography was spurred shortly after returning to school. He took a black and white film photo course to fulfill an art requirement and quickly discovered an undeniable passion for photography.

At A&M-Commerce, Chris was happy to find a student advising staff that works tirelessly to help each student transition into life at A&M-Commerce, and find their way to graduation.

After his time in Commerce is complete, Chris plans to build a name for himself in the Dallas photographic community.
