Hi, I’m Greg Knudson, a photographer and videographer from Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. As a strong visual thinker, I’ve always preferred communicating with creativity and art forms, and I’d like to think I have a unique way of capturing moments whether they are moving or a snapshot of time. I am in my element when documenting important events with a camera in my hand. and how I make sense of the world and express my ideas, which come to me almost constantly. When I listen to music I am usually envisioning how a video would be structured to it. I picked up my first dSLR in 2009, and was a quick study, expanding my knowledge and skills with the help of local photographers, mentors and a self-directed passion that often borders on obsession. I am constantly improving my craft. If I’m not shooting, I’m scouring the web for new ideas and techniques to employ in my next project, taking film-making courses, or drawing inspiration from a variety of mediums.
In 2011 I started my business, GK Media, and began photographing and filming weddings and I’ve never looked back. I’ve always preferred photographing people, especially during important and genuine moments, so weddings were a natural choice. In December 2012, my work took me all the way to Dhaka, Bangladesh to be the videographer for a 2 day wedding, which sparked a desire to experience new places and cultures and incorporate this element into my work. It really is a dream when presented with such opportunities. The novelty and exhilaration of seeing an exotic place for the first time really provides a creative boost. My approach is a mix of photojournalistic and cinematic, but I’ll let my work speak for itself in the galleries above. Outside of photography and videography, I am a serious cinephile and audiophile, watching films (I’d say they were all research, but that would be a stretch) and listening to music in search of inspiration. I’m a serious foodie and I also enjoy cooking, fitness, spicy food, caffeine in its many forms, and crossing off an ever-expanding bucket list of travel destinations. If you would like to work with me, please send me a message with the contact form in the top menu. I am available for bookings world-wide.
