Core77's Hand-Eye Supply Curiosity Club is pleased to present commercial Photographer Ray Gordon!
"My Preposterous Career Doing the Imaginary Job of Commercial Photography"
23 NW 4th Ave
Portland, OR 97209
Tuesday, Oct. 1st, 6pm PST
Ray Gordon will discuss his failures and successes as a commercial photographer. Observations include how absurd he finds 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.
