About Greg Gorman
Greg Gormans work documents that peculiar obsession of the 20th century celebrity. His photography is timeless and not confined to has-beens, hot properties, and wannabes. Each shot gives a picture of human nature in its infinite range. Each picture is also a testament to the individual character. For me a photograph is most successful when it doesnt answer all the questions, says Gorman, and it leaves something to be desired.
After 30 years of taking photographs with various medium format analog cameras, Greg Gorman has now fully transitioned his photo studio into the world of digital photography. Practicing his digital skills on a daily basis, Greg quickly became so adept with his digital knowledge that he became a beta tester for many companies and a sought after guest speaker at digital conferences worldwide. From personality portraits and advertising campaigns to magazine layouts and fine art work, Greg has developed and showcased a discriminating and unique style in his profession. Born in 1949 in Kansas City, Missouri, Greg attended the University of Kansas majoring in photojournalism and graduated from the University of Southern California with a master of fine arts degree in cinematography. He currently resides in Los Angeles and Mendocino, California.
