Gil Maker
Gil Maker

Born in Boston (and, yes, an avid Red Sox fan), I have lived in Rochester for the past 30 years. While attending Syracuse University I did a little photography, which was displayed at the Everson Art Gallery in 1978.  After college I didn’t do much photography until 2001.

My subjects include landscapes and shapes and patterns found in common objects. I enjoy thecopyright-Gil Maker challenge of capturing an image from an unusual perspective. I have worked with Ron Reznick, Moose Peterson and Vincent Versace, among others, to continue improving my craft. 

To sum up my philosophy of photography: If an image excites you, take it. That image will never come around again, so you only have one chance. It may be a keeper or not, but if you don’t take it, you’ll never know.
