about Tom Gore

Male

After years of working as a commercial photographer I taught creative photography, photojournalism and the history of photography at the University of Victoria. I now seldom accept assignments but instead concentrate on working as a fine art photographer, a euphemism for making lots of great work that seldom sells ;-)

Italy, Turkey and France, the photograph as metaphor and the fine art nude in the landscape are areas of ongoing work, along with my Atget re-photographic project that continues in Paris. I mostly shoot on the streets and in a studio in Victoria's historic Chinatown. I also write about photography and photographic history. I've had two Canada Council grants and won the Photographic Society of America's critical writing award, a Victoria Arts Council's digital image award, the Victoria College of Art Award, Bronze Medals from Trierenberg and Moscow, a Silver Medal from the Toronto Salon in 2018, Gold Medals from Bardarf 2019 and Graphis 2019 and a Photographic Society of America Gold Medal from Prague in 2019.

Publication credits include Kew Magazine, Devon Today, Globe & Mail, Saturday Night, CNN, MGM, Mandalay Pictures, Surreal Beauty Magazine, Camera Canada (portfolio), Camera Mainichi (several portfolios), Raddle Moon (several portfolios), Image in Progress (portfolio), IoN #16, Model Society magazine and EROS Magazine #1 & #2,

Books that include my work are The Stereo Show, Object and Image by George M. Craven, Photographic Possibilities by Robert Hirsch, Nude Closeup by EG Irwin, Trierenberg Super Circuit 2015, the Exposure Award - Dreamers Collection, Graphis Nudes 6 2019 and The World's Greatest Erotic Art of Today - Volume 5.

  • Tom...I so agree (and can so relate to) with your definition of fine art ("making lots of great work that seldom sells"). Your work is so amazing! I find your painterly style of the photographic image be nothing short of gorgeous.

    P.S. Hope you can also sell an image every now and then (lol).

  • surprise after all these years we may even meet at last!
    cheers and bravo for your good work..
