About Ann Dickson L.R.P.S.

Ann was lucky enough to travel to Australia in her early twenties, where she was hit by the harsh bright light, after being so used to the soft light of Northamptonshire. The modern architecture mixed with the bright colours of the New South Wales scenery, taught her so much about how light plays such an important part in photography.

A career of working with horses, then having a family, put photography on the back boiler for Ann. But by the time her last child went off to school, digital photography had become more affordable. She got her first digital camera in 2004, and promptly signed up for an evening classes so she could learn about the black art of photo-editing software.

However, photography was once again put to one side due to family circumstances. But after moving house, Ann was taken to a local camera club by a wonderful neighbour, who took her under her wing and really pushed her.

After joining the local camera club and gaining the confidence to show her work, Ann went to a photographic exhibition whilst holidaying in Norfolk. There she met Joy Hancock F.R.P.S., M.P.A.G.B who encouraged her to take her photography more seriously and join the Royal Photographic Society. Eighteen months later Ann gained her Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (L.R.P.S.)

Ann is often asked to photograph weddings, portraits, and working dogs. But she is most at home photographing horses and can often be seen giving a leg up to a rider on a horse with one hand, whilst having a Nikon D800 slung over her other shoulder. Ann never seems to have the time to do landscape photography, due to the presence of her children. She was once told that photography was “not a spectator sport.”

Ann is regularly involved with local camera clubs, teaching, judging, and small exhibitions and she successfully submitted her work to The Photographic Angle.

Ann knows that it takes guts to put an image up for judgment. Viewing images and not just looking at them, she tries to engage into the thought and emotional process of what inspired the photographer to press the button at that moment and produce the finished image.
