Workflows with Mike Dawkins

We speak with brand photographer, Mike Dawkins about his photography business workflows.

Mike Dawkins is a portrait and events photographer with a mission to show people the best version of themselves and the world around them.

He describes his style as editorial lifestyle with an element of magical realism.

Getting his start as a photo retoucher, he shoots and edits his photos right up to the point of being “too good to be true.”

With a degree in marketing, he approaches each shoot as a brand partner for influencers and entrepreneurs like Spike Lee, Common, Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall, and many others.

When Mike is not taking photos, he enjoys watching basketball, hanging out with friends, and going stand-up paddleboarding with his wife.
