Tom GoreCanadaPRO238130pJoined 2013
For a number of years after university I was a commercial photographer specializing in fashion and architecture.  Ever since I've taught creative photography, history of photography, photojournalism and scientific photography at the University of Victoria.  The streets of Canada, the United States, Italy, France, Germany, Turkey and England, the landscape from the Arctic to the tropics, graffiti, the image as metaphor and the nude, both in the studio and the landscape are areas of ongoing work, along with my Atget re-photographic project in Paris.   Recent work blends elements of the Renaissance and the Surrealists into layered digital hyperreality photographs.

Following many years of  Leicas, Nikons, Hasselblads and Linhofs and far too many hours in the darkroom, I became a digital convert and now work with a Nikon D800e, a Fuji X Pro 1  and Photoshop with plugins including the Nik suite, the Perfect suite, Portrait Pro and Filter Forge.   Please have a look at my own website at and my pages at Model Mayhem and Model Socirty.   I work out of a studio in Victoria's historic Chinatown. 

My photographs have been published in many magazines and books and a number of them have also won awards.  Books that include my work are Object and Image by George M. Craven, Photographic Possibilities by Robert Hirsch, Nude Closeup by EG Irwin and The World's Greatest Erotic Art.  I've written two books - An Admiral View - a History of the Landscape Image and The Stereo Show.   My essays have been published in many magazines and one received the Photographic Society of America's award for critical writing.   I've curated or juried more than fifty exhibitions of photography and often lecture about the history of the nude and the portrait.  I've received three Canada Council grants and won many awards including Gold Medals from Graphis and the Prague Salon, a Silver from the Toronto Salon and Bronze from Trierenberg and Moscow.   For biographic info see my listings in Who's Who in American Art and the Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists and Innovators
