Richard Finn Gregory (www.finngregory.com) is an award-winning documentary director and cinematographer, based in Cape Town, South Africa. In 2000, he started working in film as a stuntman in the booming fiction film industry. He went on to live in Tokyo for a number of years until returning to South Africa. Seeing the changes the country was going through, he felt compelled to refocus on documentary filmmaking. Much of his work has focused on social and environmental issues in the developing world which led to working on projects in Asia, Africa, South America and Europe while shooting Nobel prize winners, heads of state, and ordinary people leading extraordinary lives. He was the last person to film Nelson Mandela in a private setting.
Richard attended film school in Barcelona, holds a Masters degree in cinema, and is the founder of The Good Work Picture Company (www.goodworkpictures.com), specializing in documentary films, television, and photography. His second feature documentary film, The Boers at the End of the World, being shot in Patagonia, is being released in 2015.
He exclusively uses SanDisk Extreme PRO memory cards and SSDs: “In documentary filmmaking, there are no second takes, and so reliability of storage media is critical.”
