About Me, The Photographer

Comox Valley Photographer, Gordon Ross

Comox Valley Photographer, Tin Town Studio, Courtenay, BC, Canada.

I love to tell stories with images. I shoot studio and environmental portraits of musicians, artists, athletes, actors…that’s the short list. A native of Canada based in Courtenay, BC, my commissioned work and stock photography has been featured in publications such as Sports IllustratedThe Globe and MailTransworld Snowboarding, Audubon Magazine, Westworld Magazine, TravelScopeThe Financial Times and Inflight magazines. I have published two books of my work, Waiting for the Sun: Journeys to Remote Places (2008) and Tattoo + You: A Photo Story of Body Ink (2012).

My history of shooting spans photo journalism, sports-action and travel to commercial work, lifestyle and portrait photography. I have photographed in 90 countries and counting, on numerous international expeditions and have been an official photographer at the Winter Olympics, as well as the Big 5 Kayak Challenge (a 1200-km journey from the Yukon to the Arctic Circle).

I work in digital media at a local college and teach photography and guide for Quark Expeditions in Antarctica. Please check out my images on this site, Facebook and Instagram.
