Photographer Gregory Crewdson

CBS Sunday morning profiled the photographic work of Gregory Crewdson. His photographs are shot in a series of highly staged scenes on par with a film shoot. According to Crewdson his career in photography started when he signed up for a photography class to be near a particular girl and became hooked on photography.

His work can be viewed through a number of published books and exhibits at galleries in New York, London, Los Angeles. Crewdson's musical experience, before becoming a photographer, as a member of the power pop band The Speedies is an interesting caveat to his career.
