Greg is a professional mariner and a willing prisoner of the sea. There is a direct connection and appreciation that develops and Greg tries to provide a glimpse of this connection we all have with nature in his images. His work at sea has provided the opportunity to see many amazing places in this world. Every time he returns home he is reminded that you do not have to travel the world to find opportunities to capture amazing images. Opportunities surround us if we just take a few moments to slow down in this world full of motion and capture what is happening around us in that very moment. Despite being a professional mariner, Greg says small simple boats is where all the fun and joy is. Kayaking, rowing, sailing, or just putting around. Just you and nature.
Greg is owner of the Full Fathom Five Gallery with his wife Carol. He has 2 books scheduled to be released this year. Frozen Hands- documenting the life of scallop fisherman in Maine, published in May followed by Sea Smoke scheduled release in December 2023.
