Greg Hardwick – Creative Director and Photographer and founder of The Deck Studio
I’m Greg and I am a story teller and adventurer based near Noosa, Queensland. I use digital images and video and at times, film.
Photography has been something I’ve done for most of my life since I first started camping with my parents when I was just a boy.
Studying for a Degree in Environmental Science in the mid-90s made me realise the value and power that a simple image can convey.
Since completing a Diploma of Journalism I’ve been self-employed as an Editor and Photo Journalist where images often convey the story better than words. I also have a Diploma of Photography and an Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts.
For the past 20 years I’ve dedicated my time to seeking new ways to capture and present an image.
I’ve been active all my life. I’ve represented my state in rowing, running and road cycling and I’ve represented Australia in Hawaii at the World Ironman triathlon championships on three occasions and the short course world titles in Florida, USA. My fastest Ironman time in Australia was 9hr 29 min, while my fastest road marathon was 2hr 47 min.
In more recent years I’ve returned to long distance running on trails although I now spend more time planning and completing long self-supported fast hikes, often through mountainous regions with no trails. I’m always looking for new and creative endurance challenges. You can read about my latest adventures on my personal website Beyond the Woods.
What I offer
I take adventure and environmental portraits of families, couples, friends and groups, including covering adventure events and helping to promote your business and products.
Exploring different mediums using film and various image transfer techniques I also produce fine art images.
