Gordon Nicholas was born 1985 in Northampton, Massachusetts, and currently lives and works in Vancouver. Having moved to Vancouver at a young age, Gordon has since taken a firm grip on photography, as an unconscious way to hold on to what so often gets left behind. He holds a BFA with a major in photography from Simon Fraser University and is currently shooting freelance. Gordon takes his everyday life and curates it, camera in hand, into a journal of good times had with his skate rat, road tripping, couch and concrete surfing friends. While his personal work has a very definite edge his commercial work is finely tuned and highly professional. Gordon finds a balance between his two bodies of work which inform each other meeting a balance rarely achieved.
