Gordon started in photography in 1966 after joining the Merchant Navy. He has since then done all forms of photography and to this day this includes darkroom and processing all his own films, both positive and negative, which he still enjoys as much as ever. Today however most of his work is digital. He started to do more nature photography some 25 years ago, which is his main love as it gives him a perfect excuse to travel. He has been a member of Upminster Camera Club for some 30 years and is currently Chairman of Lee Valley Nature Photographers. He joined the NPP in 1996.
