Gray Warriner, Director
Gray Warriner was born in Pensacola, Florida, but has lived most of his life in Seattle. He graduated in Geology and Physical Geography from the University of Washington. He encountered a French documentary film crew at the Mayan ruins of Tikal, Guatemala. Filming fascinated Gray and he abandoned his graduate studies in geology to pursue a career in documentary film making.

He returned to the University of Washington for several years in the mid-1980s to teach film while simultaneously running Camera One.

Gray has filmed all around the world and has produced programs for the Smithsonian Institution and was the first Director of Photography for the PBS series Travels with Rick Steves.

Besides writing most of the Camera One scripts and directing, Gray has won personal achievement awards and accolades for his cinematography. The International Television and Video Association has given him the Special Achievement in Cinematography Award and, regionally, he has won the Best of the Northwest for the Pacific Northwest/Northern California Region.

Gray also produces and presents adventure/travel programs to audiences across the United States and Canada. He shows to audiences ranging in size from several hundred to several thousand at venues such as the National Geographic Society, the Carnegie Institute in Pittsburgh, Chicago Geographic, Philadelphia Geographic, and colleges and universities.
