Greg Hardwick – Digital Content Creator
I’m Greg and I am a story teller and adventurer based near Noosa, Queensland. I mainly work with full-frame digital images and video – and at times medium-format film. I currently use various Sony Alpha cameras and lenses as well as a drone.
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 helped me realise the value and power that a simple image can convey such as Peter Dombrovskis’ Rock Island Bend, Franklin River image.
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. To further increase my knowledge of photography techniques I have completed a Diploma of Photography and an Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts.
I’ve been active all my life, except for a period of time I spent recovering from a brain injury. 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 – not super fast by any means, but still I’m proud of my sporting past and it helps me today to understand the minds of the athletes I sometimes photograph.
In recent years I’ve transitioned to long self-supported hikes, kayak and canoe trips and mountain bike adventures. I’m always looking for new and creative ways to keep exploring.
