about

Pedro Greig AAIPP is a multi-award-winning photographer, as well as an accomplished film director, writer and music composer. As an accomplished storyteller, he is affectionately referred to as a creative jack-in-a-box.


He is most commonly known as Sydney Dance Company's resident multimedia artist, shooting both stills and motion for their season campaigns and stage productions, as well as often spending time on tour and in the rehearsal studio shooting with the company.


Pedro’s photographic career began in 2010, leaving behind a 13-year career as an Art Director when Australia Council for the Arts awarded him a 12-month residency with Sydney Dance Company under the Digital Arts Era program. The resulting body of work from the residency became the subject of case studies and educational programs in the Australian arts sector, which resulted in Pedro being invited to lecture and host workshops at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum. Since then, Pedro has been invited to talk at many creative industry events to discuss his creative process, critique and provide feedback on aspiring photographers' work, and run workshops.


His other clients include Sydney Opera House, Art Gallery of NSW, Canon, National Geographic, Kaldor Public Art Projects, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Melbourne Recital Centre, Sydney Theatre Company, Griffin Theatre Company, Destination NSW, Commonwealth Bank and Garmin. He has worked closely with internationally renowned artists such as Marina Abramovic, Mira Calix and Rafael Bonachela. Canon own a large collection of his panoramic images, permanently installed in their Sydney HQ and Chifley Square showrooms.


In 2012, Pedro was the curator of VIVID Sydney's new "Arts Precinct Light Walk" - the southern hemisphere's largest arts festival that currently draws over 1.5 million visitors per event. The new walk included 14 sculptural light installations in Sydney's performing arts district, and extended the festival to be the largest in VIVID's history in both geographical size and number of artworks. To date, five works of Pedro's have been exhibited at VIVID Sydney.


Within 18 months of taking up photography professionally, Sydney Opera House commissioned Pedro to hold a solo photography and short film exhibition in their foyers. The acclaimed exhibition, titled MEMENTO, was a huge success and secured his position as a highly sought after talent both locally and internationally.
