“What can I say about Greg Moliterno?.. Greg is more than just one of those photographers who hits you up to go out and shoot, he’s more of a homie who wants to chill and ride and just happens to be amazing at what he does. He’s also one of the rare combos of person that has a good eye for not only photos but filming and putting together videos as well. I’m always hyped to get a clip or photo with Greg cause I know it’ll be on point and the happiness he shows of the final product just proves how much he loves doing bmx and his friends. ” – Nick Seabasty
