Born in Birmingham, Alabama, on March 23, 1992, Gavin Doran and his identical twin brother, Chase, spent their formative years between the sun-kissed beaches of Destin, Florida, and the idyllic setting of their grandmother's lake house in Georgia.
It was in the heart of the American South that Gavin's curiosity blossomed, forging his path as a visionary photographer and cultivating the resilience needed to chase his dreams.
Now splitting his time between his Brooklyn, New York studio and his home in St. Petersburg, FL, Gavin's passion for capturing the human condition transcends borders as he embarks on global assignments and campaigns. With a keen eye for detail and a natural ability to evoke the essence of his subjects, Gavin's empathetic approach creates powerful images that resonate with viewers.
For Gavin, photography is more than a creative medium; it's a philosophy that enables a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world. He finds beauty in the mundane and encourages gratitude in every situation, helping others to discover their unique artistic voice.
Gavin's outstanding work has earned him prestigious accolades, including the 2023 British Journal of Photography's 'Portrait of Humanity' award and the 2022 'Decade of Change' award, which spotlights the global impacts of climate change. In addition, Gavin received recognition when winning the Life Framer 'Human Body' and 'Street Photography' competitions in 2022.
With a career spanning 13 years and featuring in renowned publications such as Forbes, GQ, and Rolling Stone, Gavin's ambition remains undimmed.
Eager to explore new creative frontiers, he looks forward to collaborating with clients and pushing the boundaries of the art form he holds dear.
