A true conservation partner in your conservation storytelling

Gregg McLachlan is a rare breed in today’s world of conservation filmmaking and videography. His deep experience as an award-winning journalist turned full-time conservation videographer for more than a decade means he brings a unique blend of storytelling and filmmaking expertise to every purpose-driven video and film project. 

It has taken years of hard work, lessons learned, and field experiences to become the full-time conservation filmmaker he is today. When you hire Gregg, you’re investing in a video and production specialist and conservation advocate who shares your same values and dedication to conservation.

Born and raised in Toronto, Gregg’s childhood was weekends and summers of a symphony of rustling leaves, bubbling brooks, and the whispering pines in Parry Sound and Muskoka that stirred his storytelling imagination. Oh the stories he could tell as a teenager at the supper table after long mornings and afternoons hiking, paddling and portaging a canoe in the backcountry north of the family cottage.

His original career goal was to become a wildlife technician but his college application ended up on a wait list. Restless, he swerved to attend journalism school and soon embarked on a first career where his deep skills in storytelling guided teams of journalists to repeated prestigious national awards. In 2010 he left his career in journalism to again pursue his dream of working full-time for conservation.

His portfolio is a visual chronicle of endangered species, fragile ecosystems, and the resilient communities striving to protect them. From old growth forests of Northern, Eastern and Southern Ontario, to one of Canada’s most remote wildlife research stations on a windswept sandspit, Gregg’s work connects audiences to the universal language of nature.

His conservation documentaries, most notably the recently released A Priority Place and The Bird House – Life On The Edge at Long Point, are not just visual feasts but calls to action, prompting viewers to engage with the urgent issues facing the natural world. Gregg is not just a filmmaker and videographer; he is a force of nature, an advocate for conservation, and a storyteller whose tales resonate long after the credits roll.

“Working with Gregg on conservation projects is an incredible experience. 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’s fun to work with and his videography is spectacular.”
