Greg Whiteley graduated from Brigham Young University in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in film. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California.

Whiteley directed New York Doll, which showed at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival. The work was highly praised and garnered attention from Waldon Media. In 2008, Whiteley received the Visionary Award at the LDS Film Festival. The award was given to recognize Whiteley’s many contributions to film, particularly for his work as a documentary filmmaker.

Whiteley's film, Mitt, is a documentary chronicling the life and bid for presidency of Mitt Romney. The film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. The next year at the Festival, he showed his film, Most Likely to Succeed, a documentary looking at the educational systems of America. In September 2015, he screened the documentary on UVU campus in the Regan Theatre, and also appeared on the KSL Doug Wright Show to discuss the documentary. In December of that year, Whiteley's documentary was announced as a grant winner from the AFI Docs/NBC Universal Impact organization.

In 2015, he was one of the alumni highlighted by the College of Fine Arts and Communications for the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Harris Fine Arts Center.
