Featured Photographer Greg Hawkins

Greg and Jan Hawkins operate Studio G Photography located in central Alabama near Birmingham. Greg says they did their first wedding together in June, 1980 – even before he married the love of his life, Jan.

They started making slideshows with ProShow Gold in 2005 and then upgraded to ProShow Producer shortly thereafter.

The slideshows that they make with ProShow are among their favorite products offered by Studio G. Greg and Jan say that the excitement of electronic media, the convenience of uploading and sharing shows on the Photodex website and the ability to showcase not only the beautiful images from the wedding, but to also tell the story of the wedding day are things that make ProShow Producer an extremely important part of their business.

Greg is a multiple winner of the Fuji Masterpiece Award and has been awarded two Kodak Gallery Awards for his wedding imagery. He has won many accolades of excellence from WPPI and multiple top three finishes in their annual print/album competitions.
