Over a thousand weddings per year plus hundreds of portraits?  How many people does this guy have working for him, 20, more?

Sounds like it would be more...I work for a huge studio and we have three locations

over 300 people working for us 

Doug Gordon has 27 people working for him and besides his amazing sales and interpersonal skills, he is obsessed with efficiency. I was amazed to see how he retouches a photo in less than 30 seconds while some of us take tens of minutes to do the same job. He uses a keyboard designed by himself (if you google his store you will find it...something like doug gordon myshoppify, but I found it pricey at $300+) and applies actions with the speed of light. Doug is a true inspiration for many photographers. Cheers, Calin

Doug Gordon: LIKES: Style, business approach, some of his actual photos (nothing out of the ordinary though). DISLIKES: his way of interacting with his models, imo touching a female client is a taboo for a male photographer - especially the way he does it in his wedding DVD series. Also constantly calling them gorgeous, beautiful, sexy and so on is borderline creepy. Respect your models and they will trust you and give you all they can. Maybe it was because he knew the model of the DVD series very well, but the way he does it, he almost advertises groping. And any photographer who does this gives the rest of us a bad name.

He does the same thing all through the course on creativelive....

I use the words "hun" and "darling" like it's my client's name. I don't see anything wrong with using personal words to help the client feel a little more at ease during a shoot. It's probably more 'normal' in the fashion industry, I suppose. It's probably also because I'm a little gay.
