Who is Greg Phelps
I am a photographer based in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas who specializes in photographing architecture and creating fine art images.
I grew up in Ithaca, Michigan, a rural farming town right in the center of the state. My high school years led me to a degree and career in mechanical design. Unfortunately, the big car crunch of the 80’s came along and and i found myself sidelined. Alway having had a love of photography, I decided to give it a try professionally. Wow! Guess what? A lot of that training in mechanical design translated to not only portrait, fine art , and commercial photography, but also architectural photography. I found I loved this new career much more than the engineering design and had found my real calling.
In 1983, I moved to Brownsville, Texas on the border with Mexico and opened a studio. From this location, I was able to work for many American companies on both sides of the international boundary. I continued to do portrait, fine art, and commercial work, but, in time, my architectural work also caught the attention of clients in Houston, Dallas and San Antonio. My body of work has been a labor of love and, thankfully, my clients have validated my decision to make it so.
Over the years my photographic opportunities have led to several shows and exhibits, most notably “Houston Architecture: The way I see it”; “A Portrait of Survival” (American Cancer Society); “Women Who Make a Difference” (United Way); “Hometown Heroes”; and “The Protectors” (Fort Bend County Women’s Center).
