Born in Perth, Australia, Dion embarked on the usual antipodean right of passage collecting passport stamps through 40+ countries and is currently based in London, United Kingdom.

He qualified as a pharmacist and after many years in the dispensary he swapped helping patients and teaching future pharmacists for helping photographic clients with both the technical aspects and artistic side of photography. Although an unconventional transition, it could be seen as a natural progression following in the footsteps of both his artists parents who instilled in him an appreciation of the beautiful and wonderous natural world.

From assisting in workshops at his camera club in 2011 whilst learning photography, he's progressed to successfully running his own photographic group with over 5,500 members. This journey from novice to professional has highlighted to him how important friendly encouragement is together with learning the technical aspects in a step-wise manner, something which is evident in his workshops today. Running his camera club and designing the varied workshops for the photographers keeps him on his toes with many different genres of photography but his focus keeps returning to landscape and wildlife.

He currently leads Iceland Photo Tours’ Scottish Highlands workshop and is excited to be continuing to explore the UK, in partnership with sponsorship from Kase Filters.
