|Traci Dickson is a nature photographer living in Suwanee, Georgia. Born and raised on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Traci spent her childhood surrounded by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. She received a Bachelor of Education degree in 1992 from the University of British Columbia and a Masters in Educational Leadership in 1997 from San Diego State University. Traci retired from teaching in 2005 when her family was relocated from Canada to the United States. For the next 13 years, she devoted her time and energy to relocating the family 4 times and raising her two children Braeden & Brieanne.
Traci began photography in 2015 to document her children’s high school years, milestones and special occasions. Today, with both children now at college, Traci has the freedom and the time to explore and express her lifelong love of nature through this medium. Influenced by the works of Canadian naturalist and painter Robert Bateman, her realistic and fine art nature photographs have been captured throughout the Southern U.S. during outings to wildlife refuges, nature preserves, botanical gardens, state parks, and even within her own backyard. Traci’s work has been exhibited at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, The Hudgens Center for Art and Learning, Oatland Island Wildlife Center, and the Suwanee Arts Center. She is an active member with the Georgia Nature Photographers Association, a recent graduate of the New York Institute of Photography (2020) and a regular participant in workshops offered by the Atlanta School of Photography.
As a nature photographer, Traci’s passion lies in capturing the beauty and wonder of nature with light, story and composition. Whether it be wildlife, landscape or florals, Traci draws her inspiration from observing the natural world and portraying its character. My photographs are an expression of joy, awe and appreciation of a moment or an experience.
Through my photographs, I aim to invoke a feeling of wonderment and appreciation for Nature’s beauty. I hope to educate and inspire in others an appreciation for nature, understanding the importance and the value of our environment. My desire is to share with you a moment in time that can never be repeated exactly the same again.
