Connecticut based photographer Bill Gordon loves to travel and photograph exotic places and people. Following a twenty-year career as an investment banker, he spent fourteen years restructuring troubled companies including Lehman Brothers and managed the reconstruction of the New Orleans Public Schools after hurricane Katrina. Since retiring in 2014, Bill has been able to more actively explore his passion for photography. Bill has deep roots in coastal Maine. His immediate family has spent summers in a small coastal Maine village since before the turn of the last century and he grew up surrounded by his mother’s paintings of the region. Bill is self-taught, has an eye for composition and captures the subtleties of early morning and late afternoon light along the coast as well as the magic created by the fog at dawn. Bill was recognized with a prize in his first juried show at the University of CT. Two years ago, he held his first one-man show at the Keag River Gallery near Rockland, ME. He has exhibited at the University of Connecticut Gallery (Stamford), the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich, CT, Bistro V on Greenwich Avenue, the Ferguson Library, Stamford, The Townhouse Gallery, Stamford, the Carriage Barn Art Gallery in New Canaan, CT and has participated in The Greenwich Counsel's Art to the Avenue program. If you wish to purchase custom prints, please contact him at email@example.com.
