Greg Grudt

Director of Photography & Client Relations at Mathew Imaging

Greg has been with Mathew Imaging since February 2004. He started assisting in the office and on photo shoots while building his photographic skills. In the summer of 2008 he started running the office and began taking shooting positions full time. Today Greg still runs the office full time and shoots many assignments for the company. He also shoots weddings, parties and many other events when he is not running the office.

Greg graduated from California State University Northridge in May 2008 with a degree in Cinema of Television & Arts with an emphasis in Film Production (Cinematography). Instead of pursuing his goal to become a cinematographer, he mastered his skills in still photography and continues to shoot professionally today. From executive portraits to episodic to weddings, Greg can handle anything.

Before Greg went behind the camera he acted from the time he was three until he was sixteen years old. He appeared in several commercials, did numerous voice-overs for cartoons and feature films and some print work as well. In his spare time he loves to travel, snowboard, scuba dive and photograph rare exotic cars. He also enjoys spending time with his wife Lindsey, his kids Emersyn and Ryden and his dog and three cats.
