His work has been seen in national magazine features and covers, including Esquire, GQ, Interview, Life, Vogue, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, Time, Vanity Fair, and the London Sunday Times.[1] Although he studied photojournalism in college, his passion for rock-and-roll led him to his chosen field when he photographed Jimi Hendrix in 1968.[2] John Waters once said, "Greg Gorman is the only person I'd let photograph my corpse".[3] He primarily works in black and white.

He has also directed music videos, television advertisements, and graphic design layouts for advertisers.[4]
