Why work with Gregg?
Gregg provides end-to-end service

It's rare today that you find an independent professional filmmaker/videographer who not only shoots videos, but also does the scouting, planning, and audio and post-production work. Usually it all gets farmed out to contractors. Gregg personally films and produces your projects. Heck, he'll even do narration if needed. It is what makes working with Gregg such a seamless and positive experience for clients. It's an end-to-end relationship,

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 in every season. Literally. He lives in a 30-acre pine and hardwood forest.

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!
