About Oceanrt

 

Oceanart was launched back in 1997 by Greg and his wife Soula. Greg first started shooting surf photography back in the early seventies when he was given a Penatx Spotmatic F for his 21st birthday. On and off over the years, in between his real job, Greg shot surf images around his home break, Cronulla.

 

In the late nineties a change of career enabled Greg to move to a more professional approach to his surf photography. It was during this period that he realised that he also had a strong collection of beach and ocean related images and so the Oceanrt Gallery was born. With the help of Soula, images were collated and offered for sale as prints for framing etc.

 

There was a strong demand for his images and Greg started to focus more on images suitable for the Gallery and less on the surf action he had been shooting up until then. This encouraged Greg to invest in medium format camera gear including a Fuji 617 panoramic camera. Of course these cameras were all film. Digital was still a few years away.

 

When digital did arrive it wasn't long before it completed changed the way photography was seen and enabled everyone to more easily become photographers. A great thing for photography but not so good for the Oceanart Gallery. Greg still shoots for pleasure but his photography no longer has a commercial focus.

 

Oceanart will post a range of images on this site to showcase the photography that The Gallery exhibited during it's time. If any of the images are of interest you can contact Greg via his email or mobile on the Contact Us page.
