About Chad

Hi, I’m Chad!

I’m a photographer that specializes in capturing moments in the great outdoors, building relationships and telling tales. I’m the man behind the camera, behind your story…


They say a picture is worth a thousand words right?

Gather around my campfire, I’m here to tell you a story.


You can say I was born with faraway lands in my blood. My parents, both South Carolina natives, had me on an island in the North Pacific. After moving a couple of times, we settled back into the Upstate of South Carolina. I grew up an artist, always wanting to create and to inspire others.  It was that way from as far back as I can remember. Visual art and music was always my love, my therapy, my passion. Drawing and painting made its way to photography, something that had always interested me, and I began working in a studio taking portraits.


Have camera. Will travel.


Fast-foward a few years and you find me driving across the US in a Mazda3 with nothing but some camping gear, a camera and a killer road trip playlist. After that, Thailand. Then a short move to Bali and back home once more.


I brought home a bunch of new friendships, a fresh appreciation for the outdoors and a ton of practice with my camera. And that’s when I knew what I was called to do – Capture the moments and share the stories of brands I care most about. Brands that want to tell a story.  Brands that help us enjoy travel and the outdoors. Brands that stand for something. Brands that inspire.


Now I offer my services [link to Services page] to brands just like that. I live in Charleston, SC but those brands, my spirit of adventure and love of exploration inspires me to travel all over the world doing what I do best.  See some examples of my work here [link to Portfolio page].
