George Long Photography

George has served on the Board of the New Orleans Photo Alliance since its founding and has played an active role in the New Orleans/Gulf South Chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) since 1991. He is a charter member of Editorial Photographers and has been a member of the Professional Photographers of America since 1984.

During a ceremony at the United Nations in 2006, George was honored by the International Photographic Council to receive the ASMP/IPC Leadership Award. During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, George "worked selflessly and tirelessly to help your fellow photographers in the face of enormous odds. You have worked to sustain the professional community and to support your chapter members and other photographers in their efforts to rebuild their lives and careers."


While in college, George began a 14 year career in television production, first as a studio camera operator and 16mm film photographer at KALB-TV in Alexandria, Louisiana and then 12 years at the studios of WWL-TV in New Orleans as floor director for daily news programs, commercial productions, and live remote broadcasts. While there, he started a part-time photography business called Longshots and by 1990 had decided it was time to create his own future as a full-time photographer shooting primarily for publication.

George works regularly with celebrities and has presented many one-man shows of his fine art photographs. Images from his extensive stock photography collection have been published worldwide.

George was born in Washington, D.C. His father, Gillis Long, served in the U.S. Congress for 14 years. After Gillis' death in 1985, George's mother, Cathy Long, was elected and served most of a two year term. George has actively helped plan the Long Family Reunion held at the Louisiana Political Museum in Winnfield. He closed his Magazine Street gallery in 2009 because it impinged upon his freedom and creativity. He now lives and works on Annunciation Street in Uptown New Orleans.
