Project Description

Bob Gibson

Bob Gibson owns and operates Blue Water Photography, a working photography studio and gallery in the Historic Taft District of Lincoln City. His photography encompasses portraiture, architectural and commercial work. In the gallery, Bob exhibits his landscape, seascape and underwater photography, as well as examples of portraiture and event photography.


Blue Water Photography has developed into a full-service photography studio located in Lincoln City on the beautiful Oregon coast. Photographing people at important times in their life provides Bob with many interesting photographic opportunities. Whether it is a senior getting ready to graduate from high school or a couple experiencing the excitement of their wedding day, Bob provides photography that reflects the unique personalities and experiences of his clients.

Commercial photography has become a cornerstone for Blue Water Photography. Bob provides architectural photography services. This includes both interior and exterior photography for real estate and vacation rental properties. With access to pilots and aircraft, Bob is able to serve clients with a variety of aerial photography services.

With over forty years of photography experience, Bob continues his photography education. He belongs to professional photography organizations including: Professional Photographers of Oregon, Portland Metropolitan Photographers Association, Professional Photographers of America and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Each of these organizations provides a variety of opportunities for continuing photography education.

Bob is one of Twenty-three Certified Professional Photographers in the State of Oregon in 2010. This status is the result of successfully completing both an in-depth written examination and a portfolio review. The knowledge required for certification insures that the photographer can consistently provide professional quality work.

Blue Water Photography operates under a simple concept. The client is the reason the studio exists. From the pre-planning consultation to delivery of the final photographs or framed print, the client’s needs and interests are the driving force.
