Digging Through The Greats: Greg Noire
My name is Greg Noire, and I'm a Houston-based music and portrait photographer. I got started around 2008 when I was in college. I had originally bought a low-grade point-and-shoot camera, and I was just shooting things around my campus. The fraternity I was in actually let me use an upgraded camera, and eventually the university press saw what I was doing and offered me a photographer position. They loaned me a DSLR, so I was finally getting the images I had always wanted to get. I began shooting everything under the sun.
I shot my first concert in Houston for a group called The NICEGUYS. I didn’t really know what I was doing. But still, I was shooting around like, "This is amazing. I'm actually shooting at a concert." That experience alone changed how I wanted to make a living, and it was how I decided what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I couldn't imagine who I would be if it wasn't for photography. Every facet of my life is touched by my ability to create and capture moments. That's what it's all about for me.Click to start the list
