Michael E. Gordon is an award-winning fine art landscape photographer of
unusual and overlooked natural landscapes of California and beyond. A
lifelong student of nature and wilderness,
Michael’s intimate relationship with the landscape yields photographs of
great depth and clarity. He is best known for his black and white ‘Desert’
series which, says Broughton Quarterly, portrays “stunning ethereal
beauty from terrain where others see only a bleak landscape.”
Michael's photographs have been published in and on the covers of magazines, calendars, textbooks and music CD’s. He is represented by
galleries in the U.S. and Europe, and his
fine art prints are held internationally in private collections. Publications and clients
include Backpacker magazine; View Camera magazine; Rangefinder magazine;
Broughton Quarterly; T-Mobile; The Wilderness Society; Campaign for
America's Wilderness; USDA Forest Service; Brooks/Cole, Body-Mind Music,
and more. Awards and recognition include International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie, Paris, and Black & White Spider Awards.
Michael photographs with a 4”x5” view camera and film, and leads photo workshops and tours
for photographers of all levels.
He lives in an historic 99-year-old California bungalow in Long Beach,
California, with his wife Shauna, and their menagerie of rescued animals
(including Mojave the dog).
