Chad graduated from Western Kentucky University with a BA in Photojournalism and a minor in Art History. While in college, Chad's work first became recognized, when he was accepted into the Eddie Adams Workshop in 1996. His photography is as much informed by architecture, literature, painting and music as it is by other artists.
Throughout each aspect of the photographic process, Chad likes to allow for the possibility of discovery. "Spontaneity is what keeps the work constantly new," he says. His favorite photographs also have a certain measure of ambiguity. "Like song lyrics where you can't exactly tell what they're saying, but you're moved by them."
Chad's photography has been featured in Communication Arts and Photo District News. His award winning work can be seen in the One Show, The Andys and the Hatch Awards.
