ABOUT BONNIE DICKSON & WHY PHOTOGRAPHY
Throughout my life I’ve moved all around southern Ontario. With each move I’ve needed to find a new hair stylist, a new chiropractor, fresh local restaurants / patios… new everything. I’d search for businesses on Google only to be greeted by dark, low resolution customer-submitted photos or, even worse, nothing more than a street view image from a Google Car. The first impressions these searches left me with were thoroughly underwhelming and I often found myself wondering, “Is this business even open anymore?” These experiences and my love of photography led me to develop my Business Profile services. I aim to help businesses exist powerfully - to provide a means for businesses to claim and dominate their online space by leaving a current, fresh visual first impression.
Photography has been a consistent presence in my life. As a young kid I’d follow my uncle around while he took family photos, asking him endless questions about the camera. I studied photography and digital media arts in school, and this learning experience opened my eyes to the world of film - more specifically, visual effects. I pursued a career as a Digital Compositor, assembling multiple images into one final piece, and had the pleasure of working alongside many talented artists on a wide variety of feature films, TV commercials, TV series and music videos.
All of these experiences have led me to this moment and these specific photographic offerings. I feel very lucky to have photography in my life.
When I don’t have a camera in my hands then I can usually be found rock climbing or dancing my heart out at a live concert.
