GREG MALCOLM BALTIMORE BASED ARTIST

MY STORY

For me, photography and filmmaking reach their zenith when used to find those small brilliant hidden moments within the larger picture.

 

My journey started with skateboard photography in the late 80s covering the punk rock scene and then guerilla marketing in college. I started a band and was a touring artist for almost a decade while also working as a digital audio engineer for a startup dot.com (remember those) I was a partner in a promotion & production company when I lived in Cleveland, we'd bring in DJ's and out of state acts for club gigs and special events. This is where I honed many of the experiential branding techniques I use now for Maryland Connoisseur, which is in many ways like a band, sans the music where the patients are the fans. I am still working in music production and expect to release some new material in 2021, including an album and video.

 

I originally started Maryland Connoisseur as a thought experiment to see if I could use my branding, marketing and photo/video/music skills to create a premium cannabis brand. It took off as the states' legal cannabis program began to grow and I saw the vast potential to build a local media company focused on cannabis lifestyle branding and deep connections to the Maryland cannabis community.
