I photograph people, places and things. A second generation photographer, I have many years experience as a working commercial photographer. I have worked for over 300 magazines and many advertising agencies and corporate clients from across the globe. Dependable and creative, you can trust your project to Gil Ford.
I’ve always believed that a fantastic image was waiting to be discovered in every square yard of the earth’s surface. All I needed to capture it was the right light, mated with the right camera, lens and recording medium.
That image is the treasure I’m searching for when I go out to photograph. My working life is a treasure hunt, seeking the ‘golden’ image that most succinctly states what it is I’m asked to communicate.

I’ve been producing photographs since 1988 for national magazines such as Time, Forbes, BusinessWeek, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Vogue, New York Times magazine, Runner’s World and Bon Appetit.
I’m as comfortable working in a CEO’s office as I am on a fishing boat in the Illinois River.
