Norm Weber, 1923-1994, Self

I’m just a guy who grew up with a father who loved taking pictures. I am self taught……a little frayed around the “edges”…….I simply appreciate a good picture….

As a visual person, images have always had an impact on me. How a particular picture reflects conflict and tension, the “edges” of our existence; whether it be that of emotion, actions, or simply metaphors in which we are drawn, to ponder our own place in life.

WebGregor Photography is my photography blog exhibiting images that I have photographed. What began as chronicle of images I have captured  over the course of my life, now is a reflection of my current work, combined with a few other areas of interest I just can’t let go of. I have always been a “street” photographer and still love the candid opportunity to shoot real life in front of me.

I started taking pictures as a young child with my Brownie camera after my father Norm Weber, had purchased it so that we might share his joy of photography. He had been exposed to “picture taking” by his parents, and later became a professional photographer’s assistant, working in a studio in Chicago.

He eventually left his job as a photographer’s assistant and joined in our family’s business, but never lost the passion for taking pictures. I remember my father always having a camera in his car, at family functions and parties, he was always the “camera man”. He chronicled my life from birth until he died in 1994.

In 1978 I purchased my first 35mm camera, an Olympus OM-1. Many of my first street images were shot with that camera, and have been scanned and converted to digital media. Currently my camera of choice is the Nikon D810  I still use an old Nikon D-90 as sort of my point and shoot camera.

I would love the opportunity to shoot some film, if not just to create a balance from the world of “immediate response and expectations.” Creating images the old way, not feeling compelled to convert them to a digital image, simply cherishing the process of creating an image that holds with traditional photographic processing and results has a “wholeness” to it. I guess for a guy who grew up in the 60′s…the sound of vinyl still echoes in me much like gazing at a image printed on real paper, shot…not “captured,” on Tri-x film.

My current work is almost exclusively about music, musicians, and musical events. I am available for location photo shoots for “gigs” or images that you require to be used for promotional pieces, such as posters, web-sites or to be used in social media such as Facebook, etc.

    1. Thank you so much! My portrait work is still candid music event images, focused on the face….I’m so glad you like them. They are not easy at times, the light balance is difficult as is the available light, no flash allowed most times….I have a new camera body and I’m hoping the full sensor will help! Thanks again for your kind words…..

    1. Robyn, Thank you for following me as well. Your work touches me deeply. I must dig deeper into your images, but savoring them slowly a few at a time has been magical…..your flower series has once again awoken me to the beauty of a simple bloom……and your black and whites have given me pause on a human level….I look forward to see more…..*smile*
