Filmmaker, founder, WorkCabin Creative
I am a full-time conservation filmmaker and post-production engineer who films entirely with professional equipment, including Blackmagic BMPCC4K Cinema Camera, GH5, cinema lenses, shoulder rigs, Sennheiser and Deity microphones, handheld stabilizers, etc.
I grew up in southern Ontario and Muskoka. My greatest love growing up was looking at topographic maps and aerial photos, picking out an interesting location in the deep woods, and setting out on an adventure to find and explore the location. Sometimes I never found what I was looking for. Yet it was always about more. It was the advanture. It’s in these wild places where my love of storytelling first took root. Oh, the stories I could tell upon my return home for supper.
My career goal was to become a Wildlife Technician. My college application sat on a program wait list. Restless, I swerved to a career in journalism. But I always desired something more. I wanted to tell stories of the natural world and inspire more people to make a difference for conservation.
In 2010 I left an award-winning career in journalism to follow my dream. Working for nature is where I always felt I belonged. I founded WorkCabin.ca, Canada’s largest conservation jobs board, and I launched WorkCabin Creative.
Today I come to work every day in the field with the same amazement for nature I had as a 10-year-old kid discovering a DeKay’s brownsnake in my backyard. Only now I get to film and produce stories for organizations big and small, and create excitement and actions for nature in communities, across a province, or from coast to coast in Canada.
“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.”
