Meet Jon Dickson
Welcome to Jon Dickson Photography! I’m a St Louis area based Photographer and I specialize in landscape and architectural photography with a particular keen interest in old, abandoned buildings. I began my passion for photography in the 1980s while living in Europe. I remember my first few days in Munich, Germany and seeing the history all around me. As I reached the summit of an old monastery I was hooked. Starting with a Canon AE-1, I quickly developed a keen eye for all things historical and I set out to capture the castles, churches, and other grand vestiges of the past that dotted the countryside. I recently returned to my home and soon discovered the special charms that the Midwest offers. It may not have the castles and imposing cathedrals which Europe has but it has its own special and endearing places. I LOVE shooting here.
With every image I take, I try to capture the emotion I feel. Each location whether its an old barn, or a waterfall, or a castle, has a story to tell. Through my art, I try, bast as I can, to pay homage to its spirit.
