Life is full of uncertainties, and no one is 100% sure what tomorrow holds; living and getting to experience each moment to the fullest is essential.
The beauty of photography is that it freezes moments in time and takes us back to specific moments in our lives. Memories fade, even those moments that we hold dear to our hearts start to become vague after some time. Photographs spark powerful emotions, memories and give you a chance to share those moments with the rest of the world. Greg Piper is an award-winning photographer sharing the untold stories of planet earth through photography.
As an ardent lover of nature, Greg is an underwater and nature photographer. He is a skilled diver and tattoo artist. His exemplary artwork has been featured by top media outlets, including Discovery Channel, BBC, Nat Geo, and top publications like Scuba Diving Magazine.
According to Greg, he has been an artist all his life. He had always loved drawing, painting, and creating art from a young age. His first-ever paid art job was airbrushing jackets. This was back in the '80s. Serving in the US Army, his love for photography blossomed as he got to travel the world. He started documenting his experiences through photography.
Photography is more than a picture; photographs tell stories, inspire, and above all, educate. "There is power in an image," says Greg. While not all photos bring back good memories, they have helped you grow into the person you are today. One of the earliest scenes Greg documented was the battle of Mogadishu in Somalia. Experiencing the pain and effects of war firsthand, Greg now shares his story through photography.
