Greg Lessard Photography
Greg Lessard is a landscape artist with a passion for capturing profound moments in nature. Largely a self-taught photographer, Greg picked up a camera in his early twenties with the simple hope of sharing his discoveries with others. Through years of dedication and devotion to his craft, Greg has become an artist with a unique vision and talent. He is able to engage the viewer and evoke powerful emotional responses with his art.
Mr. Lessard’s photographs have been sold in numerous galleries from Massachusetts to Maine. His images have been published in many newspapers and magazines. One of his favorite photos, “Moulton Barn Sunrise”, was published as the cover of GRIT magazine’s March/April 2009 issue. His “Thompson Street” portfolio has been turned into a calendar to help raise awareness for the need to protect this beautiful area of Middleboro, MA for future generations.
Greg has also become a much sought after photography workshop leader. In addition to his private expeditions, he regularly leads workshops for local camera clubs, including the very popular Plymouth Digital Photographers Meetup Club.
“His photos are more than simply a documentation of a beautiful place. They are a perfectly choreographed understanding of photographic technique combined with a true passion for the subject matter. "My best sessions are when I'm on my own in nature and experiencing God's beautiful world and my spirit feels like it's part of something greater and I want to bring a part of that home for everyone to see." He breaths life into every image he produces and if you ask him, there are stories that go along with them all. He's had a near miss with a grizzly bear… He's been knee deep in mud in order to photograph some of the birds his father is able to call out of the woods. He's clambered within a drainage flow to capture the perfect shot of a cascading stream…
“What started off with two hand-me-down cameras… has now expanded into almost three rooms of his home. Greg Lessard… is an avid, able photographer whose forte is capturing Mother Nature in her most magical moments.”– Adrienne Bossi, Middleboro Gazette
From the grand vista on top of a high mountain at sunset to the minute detail of a maple leaf in fall, my eye explores a myriad of sights and colors. The infinite variety leads my soul to search for solace. While on that journey I often thank God for the glory that He has created. Witnessing His beauty allows me to transcend from the ordinary to a place of peace and harmony. By sharing my artwork, I truly hope that you may also transcend from the mundane and find your solace. Enjoy the journey!
Greg resides on a remote dirt road along the shores of Lake Navaho with his beautiful wife Brenda and their four cats Lucky, Patches, Tigger and Rocky.
