About the Photographer
Greg is an award winning photographer involved with photography for almost 40 years. He studied under Neil Chaput de Saintonge, John Shaw, Galen Rowell, George Lepp, Marc Muench, Art Morris, Daryl Balfour, and Moose Peterson. He studied digital printing with Charles Cramer and Bill Atkinson, two pioneers of this science and masters of this craft.
Greg’s goal is to convey the majesty, splendor, and miracles of the natural world. Greg says:
“I strive to communicate the awe and wonder I feel when seeing a stunning natural landscape, or a dazzling wildlife event. I’m grateful to bear witness, and I endeavor to create an image for the pleasure and education of people who may never see what I’m seeing. It’s important for our society to preserve both the wild land and wildlife we have today for future generations’ enjoyment.”
In 2008 and 2014 Greg received a prestigious Highly Honored Award in Nature's Best Magazine's Photography Contest and his work was published in 2008 and 2014 editions of the magazine. His work was also published in the 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010 editions of the North American Nature Photography's annual showcase Expressions magazine.
Greg pursues photography with a passion; it is his avocation in the purest sense of the word since it is not his primary source of income. He holds Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees in Industrial Engineering from the University of Missouri, and he is co-owner of Kreg Information Systems, www.kreg.com, a firm providing financial planning software to healthcare organizations. He traveled extensively on business around the United States all his adult life and often spends extra days to enjoy his photography in wilderness areas nearby, thus enjoying the best of both worlds.
Greg is a founding member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA), www.nanpa.org, and a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, now part of KelbyOne, www.kelbyone.com. Greg supports The Nature Conservancy, The Yosemite Conservancy, The Grand Canyon Association, and The Yellowstone Association. Greg is a frequent speaker and presenter at camera clubs in the southeast.
Greg and his wife, Mary, live in Atlanta, Georgia.
