Geometry: Images where the predominant elements are geometric shapes—circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, etc. The compositional elements may be specific [subject-based], such as a wall with a door & doorknob & windows, or implied [design-based], where the photographer searches for designs, such as rectangles, circles, etc. without concern for the names of the objects. For example, subject-based could consider a scene with land, ocean and sky, whereas, design-based could see the same scene as three rectangles of different tones and sizes.
He is an avid hiker and, while most of his photos are from visits to National Parks, some of his best photos are from outings closer to home.
While Greg has enjoyed photographing many beautiful sunrises and grand landscapes, he finds that the little scenes often overlooked by others are the ones that fuel his creativity. Greg is always looking beyond the obvious and photographing the things that others might not even notice…like an acorn sprouting, the patterns made by rust and faded paint on an old automobile, or patterns in the windblown sand of a local beach.
Greg enjoys teaching others and sharing his passion for photography. He speaks and judges at clubs throughout the MD/VA area. He also teaches classes through Capital Photography Center (capitalphotographycenter.com).
