As one of the few woman photographers of my era, I have worked professionally for 45 years, (24/7), and have learned that experience is the best teacher, and attention to detail sets me apart. I have been told my work looks effortless, and Michelangelo said it best, “If people knew how hard I have had to work to gain my mastery, it wouldn’t seem wonderful at all.”

A graduate of the prestigious Rochester Institute of Technology, Gail spent more than 14 years with Gittings Portrait Studio in Dallas, Texas, where she learned to capture the extraordinary in ordinary people. She also had her share of nervous brides, stiff executives, undisciplined youngsters, and quarrelsome family groups. Pushing the right buttons on their psyches and on her camera creates exhibit-quality portraits year after year. Gail earned the degrees of Master of Photography in 1981 and Photographic Craftsman in 1996 from Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Gail Nogle is also the mother of Jesuit graduate, Harold B Nogle lll ’02.
