Each year the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) holds a contest among their members to choose and showcase the top 250 photographs for their website (www.nanpa.org) and in their annual Expressions photography publication. The 2014 competition drew nearly 2,400 images with the winners selected by a jury panel of industry professionals.

His image, made from inside an ice cave under the Fallsjökull glacier on the flanks of Mt. Öræfajökull volcano in Iceland, shows mountain guide, Einar Rúnar Sigurðsson, in the entrance scouting for dangerous ice formations.

Greg frequently travels to Iceland with professional photographer Jack Graham (www.jackgrahamphoto.com), where he assists with Jack’s Ultimate Iceland™ photography workshops in and around the southern Iceland coast. Greg originally attended one of the Jack’s photography workshops in the Eastern Sierra, then another … and another. For over 10 years, Greg has been Jack’s right hand man, a valued photography partner and workshop assistant.

Greg-DuncanGreg’s passion for photography started at a young age and has now, he admits, “grown to an obsession.” Even when at home and busy with his commercial landscape business in Southern California he says, “I’m always chasing the light.”
