Hi, my name is Fred Dickerson Jr. and I am a twenty-three year old artist from St. Louis, Missouri. Though I now spend the majority of my time behind the lens of a camera, my career stems from a years-long passion and appreciation for music.
At the age of nine, I learned how to play piano, and from there, moved to guitar. I’d sit for hours playing the same riffs to Smoke on the Water and Iron Man thinking how cool it would be to make create sounds of my own. As the years passed, I branched out and began experimenting with other instruments, and at age thirteen, I joined my first band. Accompanied by my father and uncles, we toured and played weekly shows until I was seventeen, at which time I began my solo career.
Though I enjoyed music, I felt as though I hadn’t the means to capture the images that I wanted to accompany the sounds I would make. My freshman year of college, I decided to invest what money I had into my first DSLR camera and spent hours upon hours creating instrumentations and recording song lyrics just so I could film myself performing and try to bring to life the accompanying concepts in my head.
After a few years of experimentation, I decided to take a giant step and attempt to photograph concerts. I’ll never forget that first show and the energy I felt trying to capture the moment. From that night on, I set a goal to one day shoot photos of my idols in the music industry. Two years of touring later, and I have accomplished that goal.
Today, I tour the USA working various concerts and events, and offer my photography services locally as well. However, I have now shifted my goals from personal to communal, and focus on developing artists and helping those who also have a dream.
I firmly believe there is nothing more amazing than seeing someone reach the goals they have set. If you dedicate your life to your passion, you are fully capable of achieving anything that you can dream of.
