I'm a professional writer and performer, an amateur rock-balancer and hobbyist photographer. I play poker and darts and ride a bike too.

This isn't a very good place to get in touch with me as mail is very rapidly lost...

St Alban's Church, CopenhagenPlaceholderTelephone

If you want to get in touch with me about stuff that isn't directly related to flickr or photography then flickr-mail is a really bad way of doing it. I like photography precisely because it's a creative outlet that is unrelated to how I make my living. If you want to know more about what I do for a living, visit my website. You can e-mail me there - I'm far more likely to see it.


Explaining what it is about flickr that I like so much takes up more words than is seemly here... but I did once try to write an article that explained it.


flickr is visual. It is beautiful in and of itself. Adding flashing gifs and group "awards" makes it ugly. It encourages pointless self-promotion and competition. That's ugly too. I don't expect everyone to agree with me. But I delete comments that contain them. I know they mean well. But it makes a clean page look dirty.


I don't comment much. I have little to say. If I like something a lot I favourite it.

I find more things I like - pictures and photographers - by browsing fffflckr.com/ than I do looking at groups etc.I recommend it. It's beautiful. Try it. Log in. Find the photos the people who took your favourites like. It's pretty.

I should eat more soup but then so should you.

Don't drop litter.

    "I was cycling around the East End the other day, and was amazed at how much of what I saw had been conditioned by Dave Gorman's photographs and his eye for the vivid and vibrant. A wonderful photographer!"

    "Dave your Chicago night scenes absolutely rock,
    your cloud shots are strat·o·spher·ic, your canyon pics grand
    happily you escaped the Chicago grain tower amish mob.
    Stay around,
    have fun
    and keep snapping.
    I know I will.

    Good grief - Dave even gets featured in a recent issue of one of the top UK photo mags. Good onya matey.

    Ps You were in Chicago and did not visit Flickr's Dr Joanne - shame on you!
    There's always next time....I think she has a neighbor - beware neighbor she has a HUGE icicle and you never know what she might do with it....(is that ok?)..."

    Jeff Clow says:

    "Dave is a very talented photographer - and one quick look through his photostream will confirm that fact. His diversity of subjects and his unique style produces images that are visually interesting and always intriguing.

    But what you might not know is that this talented man is also a generous member of the Flickr community who takes the time - and makes the effort - to praise other's works here on a regular basis.

    Flickr is a better place because Dave is involved here, and I'm proud to call him a friend...."

    "I'm pretty sure I found Dave's pictures from some rocks (I can't even balance *one* rock, myself). Now I wait to see where in the world Dave is now, and to see it through his lens. And I cross my fingers that there will be doorbells there."
