Virginia - Los Angeles: Kip Dawkins

Kip walked into a photo studio while studying at Ringling College of Art and Design and knew he has found his calling. He spent the next decade working in darkrooms and assisting top-level photographers. His first paid gig was photographing punk rock bands. He liked the chaos, lack of control and capturing the instance it came together.

For the last 20+ years Kip has refined his craft in the controlled chaos of the photo set. He is inspired by light, angles, styling and the latest technology. There’s no situation Kip can’t handle. His confident and collaborative approach has earned him the loyalty of his clients among which are luxury textile and furniture brands, hotels, resorts, top designers, architects and builders. He is also a Hyatt approved photographer.

His work can be seen in Architectural Digest, Milieu, House Beautiful and Traditional Home. He still devotes personal projects to the rock scene.
