Gregory Cain Stay☆True Photo



Hi! My Name is Gregory Cain and I am a working photographer based out of beautiful San Diego CA. This is my 500px page. Here you will find my story, photographs, and inspirations as I see them from the dark side of the lens. I aspire to create, learn, grow, capture, and share my findings and experiences along the way. My personal interests and passions include, photography, music, traditional Japanese tattoo, spiritual growth, literature, the ocean, fitness, and travel. I’m dedicated to my craft as a photographer and to the clients that my art awards me. My passion lies in the photojournalistic documentation of moments, and the memories and emotions that surround them. I am currently accepting new clients and assignments relating to and not limited by; portraiture, action sports, editorial, product and wedding photography. As an artist I have decided that instead of choosing one subject matter niche, I am more concerned with being know by how I shoot, instead of what I shoot. Thank you so much for visiting my 500px page.

Brett is my very first subject for my “Scars” project!! Yewwww! This is his scar and this is his story.

“The scar that sits on my left cheek just under my eye is one of many scars that I wear. Although there are other scars with more exciting stories, this particular scar generates the most interest. It is the most visible of my scars and with it’s jagged shape it seams to get the most attention because of its resemblance of a "shark attack" or a "knife wound". For a South African both assumptions are a valid possibility.

Looking past the visual reasons of why this scar is so interesting, it’s true meaning lies in what it represents. Much like flag or badge of honor, it is something that I wear daily with pride. It represents where I c ...

Being injured for me has pretty much been the most difficult thing that I have ever had to go through in my life, and I think in some weird way the concept of this project is to try and explain my exsperence through making images and writing about the stories of others.

Living a life in debilitating pain not only left me unable to work or participate in any of the sports that I love, but it literally rendered me lost, and without any sense of identity or purpose. It was somewhere in this experience that a good friend, after seeing my portfolio from Mexico, handed me a came ...
