Greg’s art photography takes the classic approach of the “old masters” and expands the boundaries by using techniques that enhance the beauty of the finished image, giving it the breath of life.
To Greg, photography is like classical music: lyrical, emotional, founded in finely honed techniques and timeless in its artistic integrity and beauty. Whether he’s photographing an individual or an inanimate object, in the studio or on location, his approach is always about finding what is unique in the subject. It is about seeking to ignite that individual spark, that certain attitude, that glimpse of what sets the individual or object apart.
Greg routinely applies a collage technique to combine multiple captures into a single image. The goal is to expand the field of view represented in the image beyond what a single capture can show, and the process allows for the possibility of representing time as well as space. Since the images that comprise the final photograph are taken over a span of time (which can vary from a few seconds to 25 minutes or more), the resulting collage shows the variation of light, the movement of clouds and the changes in other moving elements that took place during the time required to complete the image captures.
