Thanks for checking out my photography page! Some of you may know me from my day job, hosting the radio show "Greg and The Morning Buzz" on WHEB-Rock 101-Q106-The Hawk 104.9, and FRANK-FM 107.1. If you do, great! If not, let me introduce myself -I'm Greg Kretschmar and this page is a collection of some of my photography. I'm a lifelong NH resident, and I love living here. I'm married to my wife Valerie, and we have 2 children, Caitlin and Tyler. I've always been interested in photography, and took it back up as a hobby back in 2008.
During that year, our daughter suffered from a burst blood vessel on her brain. Thankfully, she is fine today, but the experience changed our family, and the way we look at life. In the months that followed, I started using my camera as a way of dealing with the stress of what we went through. It was the perfect way to start looking at things differently, and noticing the beautiful things that surround us. For me, it was my way of starting to stop, and take time to actually "smell the roses".
And that is what my photography is all about: Actually, stopping, looking, and appreciating the beauty that surrounds us all here in New England.
Almost all of the photos I shoot are taken close to roads we all travel. There's beauty there, though many of us never stop to see it. That has been my goal since that time in 2008. To look around, travel down roads I have never been down, and try to truly see the beauty there. Corny, maybe. But absolutely true.
So browse away. I hope you like what you see, and if you're so inclined, purchase a print or two. I greatly appreciate you visiting me here.
