Greg is a professional mariner and a willing prisoner of the sea. His years traveling the world by water have provided Greg a unique vantage point of the world since 71 percent of the Earth's surface is water-covered, and the oceans hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth's water. It also has ingrained in him a deep respect for the oceans, its direct connection with us, and the various personalities it possesses.
Mariners and airplane pilots have a unique relationship with weather because they travel in small craft completely immersed and surround by nature and all it has to offer.
From the most smooth glass seas where the only sound heard is the bow piercing through the water under a star filled sky; to monstrous seas, flying foam, screeching winds, and the mariners realization that they are truly at the mercy of the sea and the weather that 24 hrs ago was the most peaceful sanctuary.
Because of this mariners quickly learn to pay close attention to the sky, sea, wind, and all it subtleties, enjoying its beauty yet heeding its early warnings. 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.
Working at sea has provided the opportunity to see many amazing places in this world. But every time he returns home he is reminded you don't 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.
