James Gregg


Photographer/Photo Editor

James Gregg is a photo editor, cinematographer, photographer and video/sound editor/dog dad based in central Texas. James has recently worked with clients like Magnolia, The Los Angeles Times and Nolan Ryan Goodstock, as well as his principal client The New York Times. He specializes in digital editing at the Times, working as an editor for the homepage and express desks as well as live coverage.
Previously James worked as the director of content development at KAMU, a central Texas PBS and NPR station, and the Austin American-Statesman as the deputy director of photography, overseeing visual journalism projects and video.
A fluent Spanish speaker, James got his start as a photojournalist at a Spanish-language weekly paper in Colorado before landing his first daily job at the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, where he developed his approach to community and people-driven narratives in stills and video, and followed with a stay at the San Diego Union-Tribune prior to making the move to Austin.
James was the 2009 NPPA Photojournalist of the Year for smaller markets in its Best of Photojournalism annual contest. He has also been recognized by POYi for his stills and motion work and holds 9 regional Emmy awards. Much more importantly, he has strived to lead teams of journalists to do their best work and find the best version of themselves along the way and hopes to continue to find the connectivity to people at the heart of the pursuit of doing great work.
