Friends Max MacDonald and Maynard Morrison were starting a school newspaper in the late 1960s for Xavier Junior College when they asked Gordon to serve as their photographer, despite not having any experience taking pictures.
“I figured, heck how hard could it be, right?” Gordon remembered.
He was then asked to be photographer for the yearbook and was also asked by the Boardmores to take photos of the drama group.
“I didn’t have a camera and I hadn’t taken a picture yet,” he said. “The pictures came out pretty decently, I guess, and I just kept on going.”
He began using an Argus 35 millimetre camera borrowed from his father. Eventually, he bought a Miranda model of his own.
