Hi, my name is Chad and I want to start off by thanking you for taking time out of your day to visit my website. I greatly appreciate your support and hope you enjoy my images.

I live just outside of the Las Vegas valley and have enjoyed photography for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was given a disposable film camera as a 10-year-old kid, I was hooked on making images. I then took my film adventure to point and shoots and eventually SLR cameras. In 2004 I jumped to the digital side and started off with a Sony DSC-V1, which housed a “whopping” 5-megapixel sensor! After toying around with a few other digital point and shoots, I moved to digital SLR’s and found a new and wonderful world of photography.

Fast forward to the present… I currently create my images with a Canon EOS R5. I also shoot with 35mm and medium format SLR/TLR film cameras to document my journeys with. I love the slower pace of the film side of photography, but I do not consider myself a “film photographer”, or a “digital photographer”, I am just a person with a camera. Well, a few of them.

I am a lover of photography in general and will not limit myself to a single theme, medium, or format. I feel that getting out and documenting my journeys in the way that makes me happy, is the only way to keep me going out again and again. Whether the images I take are from my phone, DSLR or film camera; or the theme being landscape, macro, street or astro, or portraits for my family and friends, I know that I will be happy doing it. This is just me though, each person has their own interests and way of living life, just do what makes you happy and enjoy life. I never expect to be the best photographer out there, I only strive to better myself each day. Practice makes progress, just keep pushing forward.

I again want to thank you for taking time to visit my website and view my images. I will continue to add photos as time permits and hope I am never done doing so. I have a feeling this site will always be “under construction” as I continue to find new images to offer from my travels.

I greatly appreciate everyone who has purchased an image from my site and would love to hear what you think about the finished product.

Get out and document life, it’s only around once…
