Dexter Davis (class of 2015) and Adrian Scott (class of 2016) both earned a BFA in mass media from VSU, and now they help to run one of Atlanta’s freshest creative hubs — Cam Kirk Studios.
The studio, run by maverick photographer Cam Kirk, works with the likes of 21 Savage, Future, Migos, and a slew of other Atlanta artists who have risen to the ranks of rap royalty.
As staff at the studio, Davis and Scott are immersed in Atlanta’s unique culture daily, learning from it and helping to push it forward, all while honing their own creative passions.

“I strive to show emotion in my work,” Davis said. “I try to put emphasis on a feeling, and I try to bring out the best in the person that I’m shooting. Each time someone looks at my work, I want them to feel an emotional connection with the subject and the photograph. That’s what I want to be known for.”
“There are so many variables that go into getting a great image of someone,” Scott said. “When I see somebody in front of me on a backdrop with lights, or on location, it’s just the challenge of trying to get the essence of that person into a whole photograph. It’s a great thing for me. I just love doing it.”
