About Me

**** RECENT update: I had to create a new one as facebook deleted the last. grrr..

Here is the link to my new one: http://www.facebook.com/GordonsLifePhotography
Or you can find me with this e-mail: gordonslife@gmail.com

Also if you like my work please support it on my pretentious and undeserved fanpage below.

***** ALSO: My 2011 travel is slowly coming together. Let me know if you still want to schedule some time.

The name is Thomas Gordon. I am a stock photographer in the Hampton Roads area, but I shoot all styles and freelance for a number of companies.

My photography site is known as Gordon'sLife Photo, but here on MM I go by that name as well as my old tag keldar which came from my e-mail back in college. Yes, I am a part-time shooter with a very real job but I love photography and it keeps me sane. :-)

Ok, what else do you need to know?

First, I NEVER ever shoot without a signed model release. No model release no shoot. I also use the standard Istockphoto/Getty model release a copy of which can be found here: http://www.istockphoto.com/docs/languag … elease.pdf

If you schedule with me, and then blow me off for a shoot, don't expect to shoot with me again... and for the record a cell phone call or text message cancelling an hour before because you stayed out late drinking and can't get your butt out of bed does not cut it.

Hopefully still interested in shooting? In that case here are some links to my work:

FaceBook: http://www.facebook.com/GordonsLifePhotography
Twitter: http://twitter.com/GordonsLife

My studio equipment includes: 4 AlienBees B800 Flash Units, 9ft paper backdrops and a CANON EOS-5D MARK II.

Due to my schedule, VERY Selective TFP/CD. Only if we have worked before, you have something exceptional to add to my book, or I LOVE your look or attitude. I like to shoot with excited and uninhibited people. Someone who brings something special to my work or is a joy to be around is always appreciated.

That being said, I strongly prefer to shoot without husbands or boyfriends looking over my shoulder, models can of course bring along unobtrusive escorts that do not stay on set. The escorts MUST be quiet and please do not look to them for advice on shooting but instead stay focused on me. It is a major pet peeve of mine. I would much rather you just contacted any of the models or photographers that have worked with me and/or checked references.

Here is access to a public blogpost with numerous comments from people I have worked with, so please look at it:

I rarely shoot with the under 18 crowd but if you want to work with me a PARENT has to sign the model release. I also insist upon meeting or speaking to a parent or guardian, and in some cases would actually prefer them to stay on set with their child.

The best way to contact me is e-mail: tom@gordonslifephoto.com

Thank you in advance for considering me and I look forward to working with you! :-)
