Gregory Schrader Bio
Gregory Schrader is not your typical photographer, therefore he does not have the typical story of how he came to own a photography studio. His story begins in 2005 when he finally decided to put his mantra to work. “I would rather work 18 hours a day for myself than 8 hours a day for someone else.” Little did he know how literal that mantra would become. Once he decided on his course of action, then came the hard part. Every technique that Gregory uses has been self taught and sometimes taught through mistakes. He invested blood, sweat and countless tears. A few tears of frustration, but mostly tears of joy. Tears of being able to witness glorious moments, tears of happiness for new friends and family and tears of profound pride when life has been taken from our friends and family but Greg’s photography remains to help comfort and remind us all of the happier moments.
Gregory has risen through the photography ranks in a non-traditional way and his photography is best recognized for its non-traditional style. Gregory works to continually raise the bar and push the limits in the photography industry. He is able to stamp a recognizable style in everything he photographs, with each event undoubtedly sparking its own unique twist. In addition to photographing families in all of their glorious traditional moments and milestones, Gregory also photographs for commercial clientele and his work can be seen in national publications. Emerging as a leader of a new generation of photographers, Gregory has the rare gift of being an artist, a natural entrepreneur and an inspirational teacher. He continues to raise the benchmark of excellence as an artist who is admired and respected by his peers and loved by his clients. As a public speaker, Gregory inspires and educates other photographers all over the country with his passionate approach to photography and a natural business sense that has made him the leader that he is.
Gregory realizes that he cannot change the world with one photograph… but he believes that he can change individuals with one photograph at a time. Gregory is available for wedding, portrait, fashion, and special event assignments anywhere in the world.
