About Me

“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.” - Dorothea Lange

My name is Tony Dawson and I am a photographer based in Ocean View, Delaware. I am also a husband, father, surfer and all-around outdoorsman. I found my passion for photography somewhat later in life, but have been obsessed with striving to capture stunning images ever since! I specialize in capturing people and families with a style that blends lifestyle and documentary photography with portrait photography. I am extremely passionate about capturing connection between people, especially the love and emotion shared during those special family times. My absolute favorite place to shoot is on the beach!

I grew up in a rural Maryland farm town, and spent my youth bouncing between farm life and beach life. I fell in love with the ocean at a young age, and have been drawn to it ever since. When not behind a camera, I split my time between the ocean and the woods, either hanging at the beach with the family, surfing or hunting.

Photography to me is about capturing for eternity a moment in time that will never happen again. Through that philosophy, I strive to create images that invoke emotions, memories, feelings of nostalgia, and appreciation for life’s beauty. My goal as a photographer is to create timeless images that can be treasured for generations to come.
