Hi, I'm Gordon

Gordon Timpen

Thanks for clicking by! I’m a German based unit still photographer. Since 1994 I have been on national and international film sets hunting for the best moments that can tell the story in one picture. The one image that compresses the film into a single photo. Sometimes it’s a movie still, but sometimes it’s also gallery shot that can sum up the film, that provides the one moment you need for building up your key art. Delivering key visuals is my passion…


My Bio

I started with an apprenticeship in a small portrait studio on the Baltic coast. After that I quickly began to make myself independent as a freelance photographer. I found my way into the movie business and began to set up the basics for unit still photography with a love series. At the same time, I have always been an assistant in advertising, editorial and lifestyle photography because I was still not sure where the journey should go. It was an inner maturation for me to accept the profession of still photography, in the end it was the decision that changed my life until today. Because making myself invisible on set to capture the perfect moment that establishes the viewer’s first visual contact with the film is what I can do and love to do.

Highlights from Gordon

that was certainly the creation of three minutes of feature film with the help of a photo story. For the film “In July” by Fatih Akin we made a trip through Romania during which we created a photo story. The template was the photo story in “Butch Cassidy & Sundance Kid”. So we had a clue how many photos we need, how long a photo has to stand, what speed you need to understand the photos and the context. It is really different to create the content of a film than to just capture the content for the key art. And it’s a different experience to travel with the director and the actors in small team to create movie content.
