LIAM DICKSON

 

VENUE 15 | The Gyles, Harbour

 

Liam is a Scottish photographer and filmmaker working in the UK and Internationally, and originally from Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. It was reading National Geographic magazine that first ignited his interest in photography, that and Indiana Jones! Photography allowed him to explore the world and learn about different cultures and their modes of artistic expression.


Liam was trained at Reid Kerr and Glasgow Met College. He was one of the last generations to be taught classic darkroom photography and the use of large and medium format cameras. As he began to do commissioned work, most of the available work was already digital and that has allowed him to use modern photographic equipment to explore filmmaking.


His practice involves photo projects, editorial and portraiture. He shoots commercial advertising work for brands and publications across print, digital and the moving image. His personal photography work spans 15 years and tells stories about people he has met and places he's visited.


The creative work he most likes to produce is very influenced by film and theatre and with a strong visual style that will allow the viewer to immerse themselves in the world he has captured. He aims to produce work that is engaging both visually and in subject. Some of the work is photographic storytelling, and some mixed media, working with light or using lighting techniques or set building for a photographic series.


Liam is keen to explore Scottish industries under threat, including fishing, shipbuilding and the decline of Scotland’s night culture and the electronic music scene. Liam's aim is to eventually turn this into a documentary anthology series.
