Greg brings to his work a passion for visual storytelling. To get the perfect shot, he’s willing to fly through the air, climb up in tall buildings, or even plant both feet on solid ground. Driven by an intense curiosity of places and people, he specializes in architectural photography but is equally proficient with human subjects. Based in the Philadelphia area, Greg’s work has taken him around the world, and his clients range from ad agencies and architects to universities and real estate companies. He has mastered traditional photographic techniques as well as cutting-edge digital innovations to consistently deliver great images that help his clients succeed.
Greg has a bachelor’s degree in Art History from Cornell University and also studied Photography at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He surrounds himself with a supportive family of visual artists: wife Beverly is a painter; daughter Lily has a Master’s of Fine Arts degree from the Malmö Art Academy in Sweden; and Paul is a valued member of dad’s photography team. And even though Greg fully appreciates and employs today’s tech gadgets, he’s most relaxed with a cup of coffee and a book, or a trip to the art museum.
Editor & Photographer
Born into the world of commercial photography, Paul Benson’s career path has landed him in familiar territory. His love of photography has called him back to support his father as an editor, set assistant and second shooter. Falling not far from the family visual arts tree, Paul graduated from Temple University with a degree in Film and Media Arts. At 28, he lives in Philadelphia where he plays the drums, skateboards and engages in online chatting sessions into the wee hours. He’s done some traveling in his young life already but would love to see the rest of the world while more fully developing his skills as a photographer and visual artist.
