Greg has been creating photographic images for companies like Kraft, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sears and Chrysler for over 36 years. As former CEO/President of a regional advertising agency, Greg understands the marketing needs of his clients, a unique factor that sets him apart from most professional photographers.
He is known for his creative solutions to some of the most challenging assignments in advertising, architectural and portrait photography.
Greg began his photographic career in 1975 and quickly became known as an innovator.
Before opening Gregory James Phelps Photography in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley in 1983 (and then, a few years later, in Houston), Greg had a studio in Detroit where he photographed automobiles for GM and Chrysler during the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. He also specialized in product, illustration, fashion and catalog work. From 1990 through 2005 Greg was President and CEO of a very successful advertising agency that he founded. In 2005 he sold his interests to be able to devote his full time to his passion, photography.
Since moving to Texas, Greg has narrowed his focus to architectural photography, fine art photography for office and home décor, and Legacy Portraits for people who have worked hard and found success.
Greg has had seven one-man shows, including the United Way’s Women Who Make a Difference, Hometown Heroes (ongoing), Champions Against Domestic Violence for the Fort Bend County Women’s Center, and A Portrait of Survival for the American Cancer Society. Greg was the official photographer of the 16th annual Border Governors Conference, creating commemorative portraits of the participating governors. His work has been featured in Rangefinder Magazine, a prestigious professional photographers magazine, Studio Photography and Design and Great Output.
Greg comments, “A single photograph can transport us in time, reunite us with old friends and loved ones, ignite our passion, fill a room with sunshine when everything else is shrouded in cloud, provide hope, and reminds us of what is truly important… A single photograph is a simple thing, but few things are as powerful.”
Whether Greg is photographing an individual or an inanimate object, in the studio or on location, his approach is always about the subject; tt’s about seeking to ignite that individual spark, that certain attitude, that glimpse of what sets the individual or product apart.
To Greg, photography is like classical music: lyrical, emotional, founded in finely honed technique—and timeless in its artistic integrity and beauty.
