You’ve heard it before, and it’s true! Photography is all about the light. A mediocre subject in great light makes a much more compelling subject than a great subject in mediocre light. But what is great light? Greg’s presentation will explore how to recognize great light, the three qualities to look for, and how to anticipate great light and be in the right place at the right time. Understanding great light will improve your photos, and improve your odds of making a great image.

Greg has published three photography books. Most recently, Tuxedo Park: The Gift of Nature celebrates the private sanctuary of Gilded Age names from William Waldorf Astor and Augustus Juilliard, to early social trailblazers such as Emily Post and Dorothy Draper as well as famed tycoons Cornelius Vanderbilt and J.P. Morgan; The Hudson River: A Great American Treasure was selected for the “Editors’ Favorite Books of the Year” list by The Bloomsbury Review. Greg has led workshops for the Center for Photography at Woodstock, Digital Photo Academy, The Adirondack Photography Institute, Olana and the National Park Service.
