He's photographed countless events and local luminaries in Bay Area nightlife. Now, Gooch, the charming ever-busy Brit whose photos have graced Bay Area Reporter pages for years, has unveiled his new website, with a special offer of prints for sale as a fundraiser for local nightlife people.

His new website www.PhotosByGooch.com is, according to Gooch, "a work in progress that is intended to showcase my documentation of our vibrant, creative and political community here in San Francisco."

To celebrate this, Gooch will donate ten percent of all sales to the SF Bay Area Queer Nightlife Fund. The fund, which has raised $146,000 so far, is offsetting the economic impact of the novel coronavirus outbreak on LGBT nightlife workers in the Bay Area, which was effectively shut down by Governor Gavin Newsom's March 15 directive that bars, nightclubs, wineries, and breweries should close in response to the outbreak.

To further help the effort, Gooch is offering two limited edition prints. The first is of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence's 40th Anniversary celebrating Easter in the Park in 2019.

The second print is a panoramic portrait of some of San Francisco's prominent Drag Houses in SF, titled 'Our House.'
