Director of Photography
Adam Greenberg was raised in the heart of the Canadian Rockies by adventurous parents who introduced him to the beauty and thrills of exploring the outdoors. A summer producing conservation films for Parks Canada kicked off his career, and he has since spent his time capturing the passion and connection people share with wild spaces. His film work has taken him across Canada; from the far glaciated reaches of the Yukon on skis, to the isolated stark coastline of the Torngat Mountains by boat, to the remote backcountry of Banff National Park by horse.
When Adam isn't working you can't find him! He is likely out skiing a steep couloir or climbing a technical peak, but you may get lucky and find him at home in Banff on a rainy day, plucking away on his banjo.
