Who am I?
I was born and raised in Antioch IL. Grew up riding BMX and causing as much trouble as possible. Many broken bones and surgeries later, it was time to calm down a bit. Photography started out as a way to document friends that were into bmx and bands i was seeing at the time. After 2 ankle surgeries it became apparent that it was time to settle down with BMX. While I have never stopped riding, Photography has become equally as important in my life as the two wheels that have taken me to so many different places. I'm very interested in all types of photography from BMX and Skateboarding, to Commercial and Fashion. In the last 2 years i have moved quite a bit and learned a lot. I lived in Austin TX for a year where I worked at a bar and as an assistant for an amazing photographer who taught me quite a bit of what i know now. After that I lived in Gilbert AZ for 6 months where all I did was shoot photos and ride BMX. Once that was over it was time to move back to IL. Now that I'm back, I couldn't be happier. Friends, family, work, and good times were all waiting for me to come back. I'm currently doing freelance work and expanding my portfolio. If you'd like me to take your picture, please feel free to contact me. - Gregory R. Dickson
