Welcome To Enso Photography
Ensō Photography is dedicated to reflecting the true spirit of people, places, and experiences through candid moments and the infinite combinations of light, color, and motion. Hi; my name is Gregory Berg and I've been incredibly fortunate to have access to some amazing locales and people to help me expand my skills as a photographer.
From traveling the world in places like Europe, Central and South America, and the American West, or photographing people on a daily basis in my primary work for the YMCA in San Diego, I've had a wide variety of subjects and locales to "reflect" and practice my craft.
I became interested in photography in high school, when my Grandpa “Chick” (the town photographer in tiny Dutzow, MO) gave me my first real camera to use for photography class. He had been shooting color slide film since the early 1950s as well as hand-tinting black & white prints to brilliant effect. He always had a camera in hand and I owe my love of the photography to him.
I also run Ensō Creative, a full service communications firm based in San Diego, California offering design, multimedia, and consulting services. I specialize in work for non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and the holistic and frontier science communities. For more information, see the Ensō Creative website at www.ensocreative.com.
Why the name Ensō? It's a Japanese word meaning "circle" and a concept associated with Zen. It is also a frequent subject of Japanese calligraphy, symbolizing strength, elegance, and harmony in the universe. I try to infuse every project, design, or photograph with those same qualities!
