For over 32 years Gordon Bowie has worked as a professional staff photographer at the University of Chicago. His work is catholic and exhibits no fixed agenda ranging from abstracts to technical with emphasis on the landscape.

His photographic training includes the Ray Vogue School of Photography, Winona School of Photography, the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and the Rochester Institute of Technology among others.

This formal training has been supplemented in the workshop environment by his studies with John Sexton, Ray McSavaney, Bruce Barnbaum, Dan Anderson, and Howard Bond to name a few. Gordon’s epiphany came many years ago while under the guidance of John Sexton who taught him how to put true meaning—expression—into a black and white print. His prints exhibit an unusual degree of luminosity achieved through his many years of experience.

In addition to teaching at Northern Indiana Arts Association and lecturing through out the greater Chicago area, he has co-instructed field workshops for Ambient Light Photography.

His work has been on display at the Northern Indiana Arts Association, Town Gallery and Barnes and Noble in Munster, Indiana as well as Hyde Park gallery, Calumet Photographic, and Brickton Gallery in the Chicago area. His work has appeared in textbooks, catalogs, publications and is in many private collections.
