I am Gordon. My love lies with the ocean, and really just the outdoors in general. I call the beautiful area of Margaret River my home.
I previously studied wine making, and worked as a cellar hand squishing grapes and rolling barrels. Being able to work overseas in an old German cellar for 6 months, was a big highlight for me. My parents also loved me, as I had an endless supply of wine.
I then hung up my wine making boots, and completed my Diploma in Freelance Photography with the Australian College of Journalism and my Advanced Diploma in Photography at the Central Institute of Technology in Perth.
I like to spend any spare moment I have, capturing special moments below the ocean's surface, and portraying the ocean's raw beauty from above. I can be found floating around some secluded beach with my camera, soaking up those epic morning colours.
My equipment of choice is Nikon. The first camera I picked up 12 years ago when I was a little fella, was a Nikon F55 and it never let me down. I now shoot with a D810 and a D4s with ED series lenses.
