A lawyer, professor and mediator by trade, Mr. Ordover became a professional photographer fifteen years ago. Since entering the field, he has had major solo exhibitions in New York City, at Georgia Tech and the Fernbank Museum of Natural History in Atlanta, and the Parthenon Museum in Nashville. Other solo shows were in Raleigh, Dallas, Tallahassee. He has appeared in major group shows in Palo Alto, Minneapolis, and elsewhere.

In San Diego, he curates the Ordover Gallery in the San Diego Natural History Museum where he has fashioned more than twenty shows featuring some of the great photographers in the world. His “Color of Water”, “Autumn”, “Abstraction” shows have appeared there.

His work has been the subject of a major profile in Shutterbug. Critic Karen Chambers said of his work, “the abstract qualities of his photographs...make him more of an impressionist than a realist.” William Zimmer, contributing critic of the New York Times noted that Ordover captures peak, emotional experiences.

His most recent solo show was at the University of San Diego. He also exhibited in a joint show at L Street Gallery with glass maker Michelle Curtis.

His reflection, abstract impressionism, and animal prints can be seen at .
