**Photography means seeing the light, and then painting your subject with it. Take the guesswork out of your life and learn how to do it right by learning from Greg. I have been a professional photographer for over 20 years, coming from the film days, where we did not have a luxury of exposing hundreds of shots, in order to get one right. Taking Greg Sargent's seminars and workshops helped me understand and learn how to do it right. Greg is not only a great photographer, he is also an amazing teacher and I still enjoy taking his courses. Thank you for all your helpKamran Zohoori, owner & Photographer  www.KrazyZexy.com

 

 

**"When my wife and I began looking for a wedding photographer we were faced with such a variety of

people and recommendations we didn't know where to start - we spoke to many photographers but no

one seemed right - that is until we met Greg Sargent. My wife and I both left our meeting with Greg with

no doubt in our minds who our wedding photographer would be - the gruff looking "old man" that made

us laugh within the first 15 seconds we started speaking with him. Greg, and his crew were amazing at our

wedding, all of our guests loved them - and most importantly he was able to get wedding shots that

captured everyone's best moments. Greg help document one of the greatest days of my wife and I's life

and put it all together in an amazing album to boot! Our time and interactions with Greg were amazing,

and we've recommended him time and again since our own weeding.

It was with great surprise that we later got a call from Greg asking us both to be amateur models for him

in his wedding photography workshops the year we got married. My wife and I jumped at the opportunity

to spend more time with Greg, and his crew. While not photographers ourselves, we learned so much just

by watching Greg teach others about the business of wedding photography. He doesn't sugar coat the

facts, but gives it to his student straight - and also shows them simple secrets of his success. There is no

magic involved here, just years and years of professional artistry and experience that he shares with those

who want to learn. You don't succeed in the wedding photography business as long as Greg has without

learning a lot along the way - and Greg really wants to teach it all to the next generation so others can

succeed as well. There is no better person to get photos taken by, or to learn the business and artistry of

photography from than Greg Sargent in my opinion, and I'd highly recommend for anyone interested in

learning more about the real world of wedding photography to study with Greg.

**Greg Sargent is a renaissance man who has the ability to capture that

very moment that is so hard to get. His skills behind the camera are

solid and inspiring. Can you see the light? He will show you how to see

it. He says “Shoot it right and leave Photoshop for those that don’t”. He

is incredibly giving and patient for those that truly want to learn. Unlike

some other photographers who may think they have learned everything,

Greg continues to learn and try new techniques which has made him a

one-of –a-kind photographer. He is committed to the success of his

students. His love of photography is contagious.

**Testimonial

If you want to learn the basics of wedding photography

Greg Sargent is the go to person. He will tell you the truth

about what you really need to know in a very

straightforward and no nonsense manner. With the added

benefit of his humor, you will learn that a camera’s “P

mode” does not mean “Professional” mode. He will

provide you a good understanding of what it really takes to

shoot a wedding. While we all know photographic styles

tend to change over time, the fundamentals of wedding

photography have not. Greg’s experience and knowledge

in this area will help you avoid the pitfalls that typically

accompany newcomers to wedding photography. But most

importantly, his experience will help you truly become a

better photographer.

**"Greg really cares for his students - he puts in 200% effort and goes out of his way to explain and

demonstrate the concepts. He's engaged with the students throughout the workshop and helps them

every step of the way. Greg clearly knows his stuff and enjoys teaching it. I have attended multiple

workshops by him and it's always been a great return on my investment."

**"After several years as a photographer, I felt my photography had stagnated. In critiquing my photos, I

noticed something lacking in my work that other professional and published photography seemed to

have.

Greg Sargent taught me about lighting, posing and the importance of continuing education. His in-depth

knowledge, guidance and honest feedback were instrumental in taking my photography to the next level

and achieving a more successful photography business.”

-Greg Wagstaff, Photographer

** When my wife and I got engaged, we knew there was only one person we wanted to capture the

upcoming moments. Greg did our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. And, Greg even

met up with us after our honeymoon to do more wedding photos on the beach. Greg made the whole

experience so much less stressful. As a guy, I imagined the photo sessions would be dry, boring, and

robotic. Not only were our sessions easy, efficient, and laid back, but Greg made the experience a lot of

fun. Greg understood the importance of what we wanted and what our families wanted, and mixed in

his years of experience. Greg saw different angles and came up with new, creative ideas. The end result

was beyond what either my wife or I could have ever imagined. The photographs were elegant and

breathtaking. Greg was able to capture the beauty of the day. As everyone said, the photos are the

most important part of the wedding experience because the whole experience is a blur, and at the end,

all you have left are the photographs. Greg left us with beautiful lasting memories that we will always

cherish.

** When the last crumb is wiped from the beautifully-attired bridal table, when the last dance has been

played, when the guests have bid the newly-wedded couple adieu, all that is left of the months and

months of preparation and dreams are the memories. Those memories will surely fade with time if not

for the talents of the wedding photographer. Anyone can capture images; Greg Sargent captures not

just the moment, but the enchantment and the magic of the moment. His talented creativity and vision

truly captures "time in a bottle" for his bride and groom. His pictures live…

When our son married his beautiful wife two years ago, Greg was our photographer of choice. Our son

was a bit of the opinion that engagement photo shoots were what "groom-to-be" endured for the

"bride-to-be". Greg quickly proved him wrong. He put the kids at ease and somewhere in the fun they

were having there on the beach, the photography happened. The photos clearly captured the

playfulness of their relationship, the love and the hope for their future, and the oneness of spirit they

shared.

On the day of the wedding, Greg was well-organized, efficient, and completely unobtrusive, all the while

capturing the joy of the day, the bridal party, and the guests. Greg moved with the party; the party did

not have to wait for him. Greg was so aware of all that was happening about them and were able to

capture the tiniest moments, the smallest details, that someone else might have overlooked. These

photos are now a priceless portion of those cached memories. As an added bonus, he set the guests at

ease in spite of the ever-present camera and that added to the enjoyment of the day.

The post-wedding pictures, taken down at the ocean, are unparalleled and breathtakingly beautiful. In

one black and white shot, he photographed the kids standing on the rocks with the stormy sky above

them and the waves crashing near their feet. The image of the two defined individuals, standing strong

and brave as one, united in their coupled strength against the storms of life, is incredibly powerful. I

don't know how else to express it except to simply say that every time I see these photos, my heart

catches in my throat.

His photography uniquely captured the beauty, the wonder, and the anticipation these two kids share as

this new chapter in their lives unfolds. Somehow, someway, Greg breathes "soul" into his pictures. His

creations truly speak to the heart. I highly recommend Greg. We are so thankful we trusted Greg to use

his talents, his vision, and his inspiration to capture and cache this wonderful event. The quality of his

services, his work ethic, and his final product far exceeded our expectations.

** Greg Sargent is both a great photographer and instructor.

I met Greg over a year ago at a photography workshop. From the very beginning, he was very generous

sharing his knowledge about photography. He not only encouraged me, but has told his other students

and photography friends, that for a cup of coffee, he will share with you whatever information about

photography you would like to learn…and though many coffee meetings, I’ve learned a great deal from

Greg – everything from editing, finding the best light and even business tips. He is incredibly

encouraging and really motivates you to be your best.

Greg has also been generous enough to allow me “shadow” him on one of his family portrait shoots and

allowed me to take images to help me develop my own portfolio. Something I have always been

grateful for.

One of my favorite workshops I took with Greg was called: “Fundamentals of Wedding Photography”

where he taught everything about lighting, posing, editing and also touched on the business aspect of

weddings. Greg is not only funny, but very straight forward and will definitely give you honest feedback,

but at the same time always encouraging his students to be their best.

I would highly recommend Greg to anyone looking for a skilled photographer or for someone looking for

an instructor to take them to the next level.
