    Mr. Gambee has been photographing for 50 years, primarily in the United States, but also in Western Europe as well as Asia. He has just completed his 10th book, Princeton Impressions, with an introduction by the university's president. Among the many tributes this book has received, the corporate secretary of American Express (and a Yale alumnus) wrote:

    "I am not being hyperbolic when I say that no other university in the United States, not one, has been favored with a book as fine as this."

    Mr. Gambee has served as the Official Photographer for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Cunard Lines, Phillips Exeter Academy, Scottish Development Authority, and others.

    His Manhattan Seascape--Waterside Views around New York was selected by New York City's Ambassador of Good Will, Francis T.P. Plimpton, in 1976 as the City's official gift to distinguished visitors. The first recipient: Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

    Louis Auchincloss, Tammy Grimes and the Malcolm Forbes Family selected Manhattan Seascape as its special welcome gift to new members of the Museum of the City of New York.

    John Phelan sent copies of Wall Street Christmas to all CEO's of listed companies when he was chairman of the New York Stock Exchange. He said afterwards he had never ever received so many compliments on any gift he had sent. It was selected by The New York Times as the “Cream of the Coffee Table Books” and reviewed by Steve Forbes.

    A Day in the Life of the Fed is a consistent best-seller at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

    Photographs have appeared in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Boston Magazine, Forbes Magazine, Colonial Homes, VARIA, Nantucket Journal, Cape Cod Life, publications of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and publications of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Port of Authority of New York & New Jersey, the Phillips Exeter Academy, and Princeton University.
