Greg is a landscape and nature photographer based in Syracuse, NY. He started photography as a hobby when he was 13 years old. The love of photography grew on him and he had so much fun doing it, that eventually it became more than a hobby. He has won many awards, contests, and has had many of his photos published in local publications, such as the Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper. In 2010 he graduated from Onondaga Community College with a degree in photography, and shortly thereafter he and his wife Colleen started a wedding photography business, called Solas Studios.
In April of 2014, Greg launched EarthThroughTheLens.com. His goal is to make it a popular photoblog documenting his travels as he captures beautiful images of the Earth and the Wildlife that live on it, while teaching others how to do the same.
Welcome, and thank you for having a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them. The earth can be such a beautiful place if you look in the right places, and my goal with my photography is to share that with you.
The images you see here have been created with a professional digital camera and wide assortment of lenses. I currently shoot with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III Camera. I use many different filters in the making of my work, such as Polarizers, ND filters, and Graduated ND filters. Through my website, I hope to also teach other aspiring landscape photographers how to use these tools effectively to capture beautiful images of our planet, just as I do.
Earth’s beauty must be shared. I hope that you will consider purchasing some of my prints to display on the wall in your home or office, to help share this beauty that I have found. The Earth is a beautiful place – hopefully humanity can keep it that way, but if not I hope our images can endure and maybe one day remind mankind what the Earth once was.
