Mayor William M. Manzi has named Gregg Workman as November’s Artist of the Month. For Gregg, his passion for photography began at an early age and his “hobby” turned into a profession in 2003 when he started Gregg Workman Photographic Art Studio. Gregg began his photography career interested in landscape photography, however, after the birth of his son in 2007, his passion turned to creating canvas wall portraits of family, children and pets.
When asked about his photography, Gregg stated: “Capturing special moments of my son and our family since he was born is what really turned my passion to kids and families. I love creating images of the family and building a relationship with my clients. It’s not just about taking photographs, it’s all about capturing a perfect expression of a child and showing the relationship between the family. I want to bring tears of joy to the family the first time they see their images.”
Gregg has worked and lived in Methuen since 1995 and is a member of the Professional Photographers of America and the National Association of Child Photographers.
Mayor Manzi stated, “I’d like to thank Gregg for his participation in this program. He is one of the many talented artists living and working in our community. It is an honor to display his photography in my office. I encourage people to come to my office and view his work.”
The Methuen Artist of the Month Program was created by Mayor Manzi over five years ago in order to give members of the Methuen Arts Community a forum to display their work and to encourage participation in Methuen’s growing creative economy.
