He completed an MA in Photography: History and Culture at University of the Arts in London in 2002. He was one of the earliest photographers to join the In Public street photography collective, founded by Nick Turpin in 2000. As well as his street photography Gibson also leads street photography workshops.

His photography has been published in a number of survey publications on street photography, and exhibited in group exhibitions in Britain (including at the Museum of London, which acquired his work for its permanent collection), at the Museum of the City of New York, and in France, Bangkok and Stockholm.
