Eat life

Gregg Thorne is an awarding winning photographer that has shot campaigns for the likes of The Ford Motor Company.

It's all about the light.  I'm always looking for it, searching for it and if it's not there.... creating it.

I was born in Cape Town and grew up in beautiful South Africa.  I've lived in London, Milan and now Munich is home.  I am married to the love of my life and we have two beautiful young daughters.    

Ever since I discovered Henri Cartier-Bresson I have been captivated and intrigued by photography.  He opened my eyes to composition and content and I wanted to experience life like that, to eat life and capture those special moments too, to capture the beauty of life.  My second influence is Annie Leibovitz and it has been through her that I have developed a love for controlling and manipulating light to create wonderful, stylised and editorial type commercial images.  

After a long career working in professional services I finally decided to follow my life-long passion of making photographs.  I love photographing people, creating images and I never stop thinking about how best to create, compose and light an image.
