Dixie Dixon is a Texas born and bred commercial fashion photographer and is one of those people who just lights up the room no matter where she goes. It’s impossible not to feel the positive affect she has on everyone she meets. Full of energy and bubbly like a glass of champagne, it was real a pleasure to spend time with Dixie during the recent WPPI Show. She was so gracious and generous with her time, despite being in great demand from adoring fans and platform audiences. Dixie is a new addition to the X-Rite Coloratti community and was named one of just sixteen Nikon Ambassadors in the US earlier this year. In this video from our ColorTALK series, Dixie shares insights into her creative process and the role that color plays in her work and digital workflow as well as the genesis behind some of her favorite images. Enjoy!
More about Dixie Dixon: Just a few years out of college, Dixie’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 one of sixteen Nikon Ambassadors of the United States.
Sensuous and polished, her images create a dream world in which romance is always alive. Her fresh vision has attracted clients such as Disney, Advanced Beauty, Florsheim Shoes, Inside Edition, Nikon, Spencer Fine Jewelry, 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, Nikon World and many more.
Dixie uses X-Rite i1 solutions to manage color accuracy in her digital workflow.
