Juror
Greg Lessard
Greg Lessard is a landscape artist with a passion for capturing profound moments in nature.
Largely a self-taught photographer, he picked up a camera in his early twenties with the simple
hope of sharing his discoveries with others. Through years of dedication and devotion to his
craft, he has become an artist with a unique vision and talent who is able to engage the viewer
and evoke powerful emotional responses with his art.

Mr. Lessard’s photographs have been sold in numerous galleries from Massachusetts to Maine,
and his images have been published in many newspapers and magazines. He also has become a
much sought after photography workshop leader and has led numerous workshops for local
camera clubs throughout New England. Mr. Lessard has led photo tours for Mass Audubon
and the South Shore Science Center. He is sponsored by Hunt’s Photo and Video.
