Kip Dawkins Miami photographers

The moment Kip walked into a photo studio while studying at Ringling College of Art and Design, he knew he’d found his calling. He spent the next decade putting himself through school and learning all of the technical aspects of photography by working in darkrooms and assisting top-level photographers. He got his first paid gig photographing punk rock bands. He liked the chaos and the lack of control, trying to find the happy accident of the moment that comes together.

For the last 20 + years Kip has refined his craft in the controlled chaos of the photo set, capturing luxury home products, interiors and exteriors, resorts and lifestyle. He uses light, angles, styling and the latest technology. He is inspired by the range of light in nature and considers light to be the single most important aspect of photography.

With three decades of experience, there’s no situation Kip can’t handle. He works hand in hand with his clients to make their vision come to light (literally). His confident and collaborative approach has earned him the loyalty of his clients among which are luxury textile and furniture brands and top interior designers, architects and builders. He is also a Hyatt approved photographer. His work can be seen in advertisements in Architectural Digest, Milieu, House Beautiful and Traditional Home. He still devotes personal projects to the rock scene.
