Bookhout began working at the Kitchener-Waterloo Record in May of 1955. He was offered the position after submitting photos of two major fires that occurred on the same day, one at the Chicken Nest restaurant on King Street in Kitchener, and the other at the Granite Club, also in Kitchener.. He was awarded the National Newspaper Award for feature photography in 1985 for a photo of two Mennonite girls playing on a swing. Gerry's interest in photography began when he was a boy. At age 12, Gerry built himself a darkroom by following the instructions in a Kodak manual. Bookhout retired from the Record in 1992 and died August 29, 2007.
