My Preposterous Career Doing the Imaginary Job of Commercial Photography

Website: Ray Gordon

My talk will be about my failures and successes as a commercial photographer. I will address how absurd I find advertising and the business side of photography and how becoming a commercial photographer is as realistic as becoming Robert Plant circa 1975.

Ray Gordon has been a professional photographer for over one thousand years, working with all sorts of spoiled brats, goldbrickers and filthy rich desperadoes. He’s really fucking rad, if you’ve got an hour, just ask him. In spite of being a tireless blowhard, he’s got a lot of great friends and an incredible family. And he takes a pretty good picture. A noisy dragstrip is one of the few places he finds peace of mind.
