Creating observant, interesting and engaging images has been in Gary's blood ever since 12 years of age, when his Dad gave him a hand-me-down 35mm camera. 

Photographer for his High School paper and annual, taking over his sisters backyard playhouse to make a darkroom, summer jobs working in local camera stores. Yup, he's a hopeless photo-geek.

After attending Art Center College of Design in Pasadena as a Film Major, he embarked on a soaring career shooting advertising & editorial work for clients and ad agencies world-wide. His tools include state of the art digital cameras, vintage Nikon 35mm and Sinar Large Format still cameras. Gary is also a filmmaker and owns the highly successful production company Limbo Films, where he directs & D.P.s. See what they are up to  here:

Over the years there have been dozens of awards and accolades, possibly the most notable being his famous 'Wings' poster image of NBA legend Michael Jordan which is included in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress.

Gary is based in Portland, Oregon and travels to assignments all over the U.S. and worldwide.
