Greg Harp has had an interest in photography for as long as he can remember. At some forgotten age he learned to make pinhole cameras from 126 film cartridges fitted to a small box and wound by a nickel. His parents gave him a 110 camera for his 8th birthday. He experimented with these and other cameras, including 8mm movie cameras, exploring the concept of turning a four-dimensional world into a two-dimensional image.

Greg began using 35mm SLRs in his teenage years, and he has been a "serious" amateur photographer for more than fifteen years. Having focused for most of this time on nature, landscape, and other natural light photography he has recently started to branch out and try new things.

Greg shoots in both film and digital formats, using mainly Canon 35mm SLR equipment. He processes his own film and imports it into a computer using a 4000dpi scanner. Thereafter all "darkroom" processes are digital in nature.

Some of Greg's favorite quotes are:

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be." -- Douglas Adams

"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment." -- Benjamin Franklin
