After returning home to Connecticut, Moore taught drawing classes and also opened a photography business. He and his brother operated this daguerreotype studio in Hartford, CT until 1864 when Moore chose to return to landscape painting. His landscapes consisted mostly of New England subjects. He kept a studio in New York, painting in the same building as Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, James Hart and William Hart.
