Résumé

 Background:


Greg Price Photography:
I have been involved in photography since 1972 and have been working full-time in the field since 1977. Since 1983 I have been a partner or principle in a number of commercial photography studios in the Union County, NJ, area. In August, 2003, I moved into a new studio in Metuchen, NJ, Studio 212. In December, 2013, we moved out of the studio because the building was closed down. My fields of specialty include public relations, commercial/industrial, publicity headshots, and glamour.


  Education:


I graduated from Cranford High School. After 2 years in the US Army I attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City as a Fashion Photography major. I also have taken non-credit photography courses at the School of Visual Arts, the New School for Social Research and The Learning Annex. I have taken courses in Computer Basics and Photoshop at Union County College.

  Clients:

I spent 10 days in March, 2003, in Jamaica shooting productions stills for the reality pilot "Natural Beauties of Hedonism III". We also shot a pilot for a woman's pro pool/celebrity show in Las Vegas. We have also shot segments for the TV show Steel Wheels in Indianapolis.
PrimeShot.com: November 2000 -
I shot for "the world's premier professional event photography service". I would go to different events, mostly class reunions, and shoot photos of the participants. PrimeShot would then post the photos on their web site where they could be ordered directly. This company is no longer in business.

I started working semi-full time (while continuing my freelance work) as Director of Marketing for this company that supplies emergency power in 1999 after having them as a commercial client for my photography business for many years. As Marketing Director at this company my duties included building and maintaining their web site, marketing research, photography, working with graphic artists and layout artists, ad placement, and computer tech support.

As a freelance photographer I did most of the photography for this local independent weekly newspaper from 1977 till it was bought out by Forbes Newspapers in 1990.

During my 13 years as their main photographer I received a total of 22 awards from the NJ Press Association and the Society of Professional Journalists. I also did some writing for them.

I was hired full-time as head of the photo department of this advertising agency after working for them on a freelance basis for a few years. They specialized in multi-media slide shows and print advertising. I did all of their in-house photography including product and location shots, titles and special effects for multi-projector slide shows, Kodalith processing, and video operation.
 

  Teaching:

I started the Greg Price Glamour Photography Workshop in 1991 and have run 393 workshops since then. I have done a number of programs for the Cosmopolitan Chapter of the Photographic Society of America. In 1995 I taught a staff development course for the Public Relations Department at Union County College.

As secretary some of my duties included setting up and managing their database of photographers, recruiting new members, taking minutes of executive board meetings, and to help organize and run general meetings. As newsletter editor my duties included writing articles, page layout, ad design and placement, and overseeing the printing and distribution of the newsletter. The monthly newsletter ran from 8 to 20 pages and had a circulation of about 1500.

I have presented multi-projector slide programs on special effects photography, gave demonstrations on studio lighting techniques, and have lectured on the business of photography at camera clubs throughout the state. I have also judged photographic competitions for camera clubs, church groups, and a local hospital.
