David Gordon portrait

David Gordon

NYC based photographer of people and events.

David Gordon specializes in photographing people and events for a diverse clientele ranging from corporate to private to non-profit organizations. A professional photographer for over twenty five years, David caught the photography bug in high school, learning the craft from the ground up, developing his own film and printing in the darkroom. His talent quickly landed him the position of photo editor of the school paper. Upon graduation from Vassar college and a stint working at Women’s Wear Daily, David started shooting models and actors on the side and gradually transitioned to becoming a full time professional photographer, specializing primarily in fashion and headshots. When the famous New York society caterer Glorious Foods commissioned him to photograph some events, David discovered his true passion. His business gradually transitioned away from fashion to photographing all manner of events, both corporate and private.

David is a photojournalist with a knack for anticipating and capturing the moment. He has a keen eye for detail and a professional yet easygoing manner which puts people at ease. Highly discreet, unassuming and unobtrusive, David is not afraid to be assertive when necessary in order to nail the money shots. He is equally comfortable documenting a gala dinner for 500 at a New York City landmark, a child’s first birthday party, the roller coaster of emotions of a wedding celebration, or an intimate private gathering in someone’s home.

David lives and works in New York City. He is available for travel worldwide.
