My name is Greg Pai and I am a professional photographer and founder of the popular webSIGHT, photographingGOD® enjoyed by millions around the world. My expertise is in journalistic, BTS (for film, TV, and Live performance), travel, lifestyle portraiture, and fine art photography.
I launched photographingGOD® in 2015 to inspire people of all cultures, faiths, and socioeconomic status to grow a deeper relationship with their purpose, peace, passions, each other, and the awesome world around them through powerful imagery and inspirations. My purpose as a recognized journalistic and fine art photographer is to do more than just snap beautiful images, but to inspire a global revolution that honors and respects the beauty of our precious species and perfectly designed world.
Technology is quickening every aspect of our lives and thrusting us into a “Snap Chat” existence where we are snapping and chatting our lives away. Yes – Just like the app! As a result, we are forgetting how to see and feel. We are becoming desensitized to the world around us, and disconnected from our own potential and each other.
In spite of my many years as a committed Nikon D800 series and D5 user, I have narrowed my arsenal to two systems over the last 5 years including Leica M, SL and Fuji GFX 50s medium format.
Between these two manufacturers and range of systems, I am able to cover the full spectrum of my work and creative palette. I also enjoy the potential of mixing and matching bodies and glass with the proper adapters depending on my objectives.
Generally, however, I will use the Leica systems for a more “documentary” feel and full on natural light composition.
The Fujifilm GFX suits me well for portraiture (with occasional strobe lighting), landscape, and macro work. Nevertheless, it will always boil down to inspiration and that specific moment’s preference for my “weapon of choice!”
