Dixie Dixon Bio

Dixie Dixon is a Texas born and bred commercial fashion photographer. Just a few years out of college, this 20-something’s career is unfolding one adventure after another.

She was given her first Nikon Camera, the Nikon FG, at just 12 years old, which peaked her curiosity in the field and served as her sidekick in exploring the world. She would continually clock seven to ten hours in the darkroom without even realizing it. While in college she studied in London with a world-renowned fashion photographer and became deeply inspired by the beautiful illusion of fashion and commercial photography.

It has been said that her idealistic vision of the world is reflected into every single Frame– full of life, beautiful energy, and most of all, Soul. Her passion has lead her to shoot internationally in places such as Cannes, Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Ibiza, and Barcelona recently for various brands, tv shows, commercial campaigns and editorial projects. Just this year she was named the 2013 Emerging Photographer of the Year by GraphiStudio.

Sensuous and polished, her images create a dream world in which romance is always alive. Her fresh vision has attracted clients such as Florsheim Shoes, Inside Edition, Nikon, CBS, G-Technology, Profoto, MAC Group, Billy Jealousy, Nha Khanh, ProFoods, American Heart Association & Angelberry Organics. Her work has been published in Rangefinder, PDN, Professional Photographers Magazine, Dapper Magazine, Living Magazine, Beverly Drive Magazine, and Nikon World.

    I found this interesting cause without knowing Dixie many of her processes and techniques are exactly the same as mine, very interesting.
    Great Interview btw!

    Great. I flunked. What does that mean? So Aaron, a bit off topic unfortunately, but popping in and seeing a video interview with Dixie gave me something to sit back and listen to while working. Thanks! But reviewing this post after I realized none of the images from her portfolio are watermarked. I know. I know. The same ole dumb-ass issue but I’m curious what you’d say and if you think or may even know about her take on this. Here’s mine. I absolutely hate watermarks, typically. They can add or detract but are never benign. That said, I love a clean image, but had I never heard of Dixie Dixon before and wasn’t being introduced along with the images I would look at the photos and think, wow, this guy/gal has it going on. I like what they see…. and would have never known who was behind the lens. So is this done (not watermarking the photos here) as a philosophical point, a personal taste or is she just in her own circle where everyone recognizes her work and it’s implied looking at the image. A lot of people watermark to protect their images from being stolen. Some, right thru the middle. Looks absolutely retarded. Kind of like, why bother displaying them publicly if you’re going to ruin them because you’re worried someone may abuse the privilege. One the other hand, watermarking is brand awareness and if you’re going to display and share publicly why wouldn’t you be promoting as well? Since it wasn’t discussed in your hour I thought you might have some after-the-fact comments to share…or not. Thanks for your time Aaron. I love dropping in. I think you may have missed your calling. I can see you as the Johnny Carson of late night photographer talk show interviews. If there’s such a market… 🙂 Bless you sir!

    Beautiful photos. Dixie seems to have a personality that is very warm and comfortable which I am sure makes it even easier for her to connect with her clients. I took the test and I am an INTJ.

    INFJ is Idealist/Mentor on the Keirsey Temperament Sorter. ISFJ are Protectors. While in the general population they are rare (1-3%), among women there aren’t (2-4%). E/INTJ are 1-3%.

    Love the work and the interview.
