Photographer, Greg Storms, started taking snap shots with his first camera, a Kodak Instamatic, at the age of 10. Greg used the Instamatic to document family vacations. One of his first Instamatic successes was to capture dolphins mid-air at a Florida aquarium.
In junior high he received a Pentax SLR as a gift and used it for years to document research and science projects, trips, nature and science activities by his students, as a junior high science and math teacher.
He purchased his first Nikon as a yearbook adviser. Greg continues to use Nikon digital cameras today.
Joining TexNEP, Texas nature and Environmental Photographers, has had a significant impact on his photography. As has his long time science colleague, Robert Brashear, an award winning outdoor writer and photographer. TexNEP members, both professional and amateur, share tips and ideas willingly.
Learning from pros like Robert, Lance Kruger, Ruth Hoyt and Hector Astorga, all nationally known, has helped Greg see and work more productively.
Greg's activities have included contributing to several Chamber of Commerce publications, photographer for La Jarra Ranch. photo-book and magazine documenting the wildlife at La Jarra Ranch in Raymondville.
