Born in 1986 and grown up in the multi cultural capital Berlin, Gordons work is influenced by a high variety of styles. Back then at the age of 15 years Gordon had started taking photographs of friends skateboarding, learning his first photographic steps with his first analog SLR photo camera, always having in mind that those days you only had a 36exposure film in the camera.
Before becoming a professional Photographer he was trained as Print Media Designer, practised package design at KRYOLAN GmbH Berlin. Begin of 2010 he finished his apprenticeship for photography, learning the professional sites at Studio Florian Seidel in Munich. After that he went back to Berlin assisting at Studio Olaf Heine. From 2011 on Gordons professional work in still and motion image products is significant for a pure and honest style with a high picture quality for a wide range of clients in different fields such as: Portrait | Advertising | Product | Lifestyle | Reportage and Interior Design.
As a photographer one wants to work in an artistic way as well and so Gordon has published his first project, called BACKSITES, in June 2015. Capturing 99 human trunks from backside – making unique shapes visible and so he realised a unique photo series.
