Headshot photographer Greg Nystrom is immersed in both the visual and performing arts, with one informing the other.
In his acting career, he has performed on-stage, in television, film, commercials, and voice over. He found that in studying plays and scripts in order to interpret the human experience, he has influenced the nuances of his clients’ headshot sessions.
His other clients include architectural firms, law firms, cruise lines, independent agents, writers, as well as actors and entertainers.
Greg grew up in a military family moving around often as a child. He traveled to South Africa for two months with his mother and two sisters, which upon reflection was a pivotal photography experience. He studied architecture at the University of Florida before entering RIT where he received his BFA in Photographic Illustration. His photography career has taken him from Florida, to Seattle and now Los Angeles. He has ridden the wave of digital photography since Photoshop became the standard postproduction tool. Greg’s innate curiosity inspires him to work with many software applications, innovative lighting techniques, in video production, writing and editing.
When not taking actors headshots and other portraits, Greg continues to act, take long-distance bike rides and shoot video.
