an example of the images created by Gordon Baxter

Type business: Semi Professional Photographer

My photographic style: Natural unposed images with a spontaneous feel for the most part. Love using lighting for dramatic effect.

My greatest strengths: I'm bright, energetic and on a fantastic photographic journey. I know I'm less than halfway there.

I have been in photography: Nearly 30 years

How I got started in photography: An old Pentax borrowed from my dad and the school darkroom.

My photographic skills: Inventive, entrepreneurial, creative, technophile. I love working under pressure and prepare accordingly.

My personality: Enthusiastic, innovative, confident. Love to work with people on anything creative.

Geographic areas I cover: I am based in Cambridge and happy to travel anywhere in the world. I travel a lot and always take at least three items. My camera and a right and a left running shoe.

Venues I frequently attend: Derelict buildings, striking landscapes - anywhere with texture and colour.

I found inspiration from: The thousands of amateur and professional image-makers whose work I come across daily - and anyone shooting in a war zone.

Success in photography: I have never considered competitions until now and have no formal qualifications beyond Art O'level. I have had some of my sports work published in newspapers and annual reports.

Photographic training: Lots of reading, hands on with lots of cameras, lighting, software and printers. I am committed to training on-line ( etc) and hands on and have attended a range of professional masterclasses.

My interests outside photography: Sport, Software Design, Business

Major events: Three times Ironman finisher, Lanzarote. London and other marathons. On the winning team of the Three Peaks Yacht Race, Telegraph Trophy. Started three companies, 1 listed on the LSE, another sold to trade in 2010 and one (local history photography) just getting going. Turning to full time professional is the next!

Testimonials: Going to have to gather a few more. - A big thanks, once again, for producing such wonderful photos. I am blaming you both for the delay in coming back with our final choice. So many good ones to chose from! Chris Emmet, Royston, Hertfordshire.

Why I like the SWPP: I'm new here but the 2012 convention, trade show and lectures were fantastic.
