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, chiropractor, local restaurants / patios etc. I’d search for these types of businesses on google or maps only to be greeted by dark, low resolution customer photos or just a google car street view. The first impression each search provided was underwhelming and I often wondered if the business was actually still open? With my love of photography and my Business Profile service, I aim to help businesses exist powerfully, claim and dominate their online space by providing a current, fresh visual first impression.
I love photographing interior spaces, objects, details and textures. Lifestyle Insurance Photography came to be after hearing tragic stories of loss from theft, flood or fire. My goal is to provide everyone with “peace of mind” in case of a tragic event such as those. My sincere hope is that you don’t need to use those photos ever, and instead can enjoy them as a timestamp of how you are living your life today.
Photography has always 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. Learning and practicing photography opened my eyes to the world of film, specifically visual effects. I pursued a career as a Digital Compositor and had the pleasure of working alongside many talented artists on a wide variety of feature films, TV commercials, TV series and music videos. (Compositing is a process where an artist assembles multiple images to create one final image. Photographic ability, theory and technique are the backbone of a compositors skill set.)
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.
