Gordon Ripley is a photographer who specializes in nature and landscape photography. When he is not out taking pictures he may be found doing photo restorations or giving lessons in using Photoshop to process digital photographs or basic aspects of photography for beginners. While interested in photography throughout most of his life, he did not begin to take his photography seriously until 1999 after retiring from a long career in computers.

Since 1999, Mr. Ripley has planned and led members of his camera club on extensive trips to Yellowstone National Park, The Grand Tetons National Park, Western Colorado (for wild flowers and for fall foliage), The Everglades, and most recently the Eastern Sierras of California. He also has visited Oregon to photograph the coast as well as waterfall photography while hiking into distant locations in the Columbia River Gorge.
