My love lies with the ocean, and really just the outdoors in general. I call the beautiful area of Margaret River my home. 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 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.
My interest in photographing people grows with each wedding. I love the uniqueness of each wedding. I tend to take a laid back, natural approach with my photography, whilst maintaing the upmost professionalism. I am not one for following trends and always up for an adventure.
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.
'' We are so blown away with how everything was packaged, it was all so beautiful and we really appreciate the effort Gordon went to. The photographs Gordon took are beyond stunning! We can't begin to express how happy it has made us to have such beautiful photographs to go with our memories.
Thank you so much again for being a part of our day. We feel really honoured and blessed to have such a talented photographer capture our special day for us :) '' Chris and Paula
