Hi. My name is Greg Goodman

Traveler   »   Photographer   »   Storyteller

Above all else, I believe that if you following your heart and passion, opportunities will present themselves. That’s why I’ve dedicated my life to exploring our beautiful world and sharing the journey. 

We live in a magical world

Our world is full of kindness, contrast, diversity, beauty, symmetry and oneness. From here to there, we all have the same basic needs and responsibilities. They only look different the farther you get from home.

My dream is to unite our global community through photographic storytelling. By presenting visions of everyday life around the world, we can begin to deconstruct stereotypes and understand that all people are one.

This is my story…

Moonwalking at the Taj MahalOnce upon a time, I worked behind a stuffy desk and longed for my two weeks of annual vacation time. Finally, I took a leap of faith.

My girlfriend, Carrie, was volunteering in Nicaragua. I quit my job, sold my stuff, and joined her.

My plan was to visit for two weeks; I stayed seven months.

In the years since, we have traveled near and far, lived in the USA and Thailand, supported each other’s dreams and said “I do!”

This brings me back to my belief about following your passions.

I’ll admit it, sometimes my life exists in a tug-of-war between two worlds. On one hand, I love the stability and comfort of a traditional life.

That’s why balance is so important.

Carrie and I now live in Santa Cruz, California, where we have an amazing son named Bodhi and are enjoying every moment of life. Meanwhile, I started my own company – Goodman Creatives – which is dedicated to helping individuals and small businesses follow their dreams and succeed.

Having stability doesn’t mean sacrificing my passions. If anything, it allows me the freedom to continue pursuing them.


Career Highlights

My photographic work has been featured in galleries, magazines, books, TV shows, airports, Web sites, newspapers, trade shows, office lobbies, private collections and exhibitions around the world.
