Why work with Gregg?
Gregg knows conservation budgets

Well, for starters, Gregg will blow up the myth that getting a professional video is beyond your reach. Gregg's end-to-end pre-production, filming and post-production services means he keeps it all in-house and very affordable. Ten years of working for conservation means Gregg works with his clients to find ways forward and meet budgets big and small.

Gregg lives and breathes the outdoors

Gregg gets it. His clients get it too. To be connected to the outdoors and nature, and make a living telling stories about the outdoors and nature, you need to know the outdoors and nature. Bam! Gregg's got that covered! Conservation and the outdoors is his speciality. Gregg's boots are on the ground in nature every day. Also, often in a red canoe too!

Gregg understands your audience and goals

Gregg is not wedding a videographer. He's not part-time or a moonlighter. Nope. Gregg specializes full-time in the great outdoors and conservation. Period. It's his genuine niche. He lives it every day. The beauty of nature is in everything Gregg makes. He knows your audience. He understands your goals. He speaks your same conservation language and has shared values. Clients that work with Gregg say that matters.

Gregg is up to the task (and the bugs!)

It's no small challenge to hike through a 900-acre forest, boat across the rough waters of a Great Lake, or live off the grid in a cabin in a remote place to create videos for organizations. The experience and outdoors skillset has been hard won. Many mistakes, issues, unforeseen obstacles, and lessons learned along the way. When Gregg says he knows the terrain of what he does, he really does mean it!

"Working with Gregg on conservation projects is an incredible experience. Gregg is talented technically in the field and in the editing room, and he also really ‘gets’ the environmental messaging, tone and substance of our work which reflects very well on the end products as well as the process of getting there. I’ve worked with Gregg on a variety of projects over the years and have always been impressed with his skill, knowledge and dedication to conservation. He listens well to the goals and vision of projects, and offers excellent input and direction. He’s fun to work with and his videography is spectacular."

Gregor Beck, Senior Strategist, Birds Canada

"Gregg is an authentic storyteller with a genuine interest in nature and conservation. He's easy to work with in the field, and knows the right questions to ask to create meaningful video content."

Cynthia Tosswill, Norfolk ALUS
