Sometimes we find our passion and other times our passion finds us. For Jason Dotson, it would take years of driving trucks around Houston, Texas, pulling over to the side of the road to take pictures of cities and landscapes before he would recognize that his rightful place was behind the lens. Releasing the trucks to take hold of his camera, Dotson would work as an event photographer while studying at the Art Institute of Houston before landing comfortably on architectural and landscape photography.


Dotson does more than just photograph buildings and sunsets- he breathes life into them. With his keen eye for finding the right perspective to maximize respective elements of each structure, he draws out the personality of each of his subjects, capturing the essence of the architect’s vision whilst also including his own style of imagery. In an era where many professional photographers have a clinical air about them, Dotson shows us the commonalities between urban skylines and natural landscapes- beautiful architecture can live with, in and through us. Creating pieces that balance between the fine line of being too dreamy and cleverly artistic, his commercial work has a certain fine art tinge to it that will carry through the ages.
