About me

I love Fotocommunity, it is such an inspiration. I can get lost in it for hours and have a hard time tearing myself away from the beautiful work found here.

Photography is transforming my life. In the search for a quality picture one must look for beauty or interest. You may find in it in the mundane as well as the obvious, the macro or the grander perspective, in nature or in the faces you pass by. The point is that I am now much more aware of the beautiful and interesting world that surrounds me each moment of my waking life. What a hobby, what a gift!

I am a professional web developer and enjoy mountain biking and computers.

** Update: I just upgraded my camera from a Canon 20D to a Canon 5D and also got a portable power pack so I can take my studio lights on location. Exciting possibilities!

Best wishes to all. -- Chip

    Hi Chip,
    You have very good technique for lighting and post-processing.
    Just little question, why are you posting two times your last set of pictures? Is it correct or I am having some problem uploading your portfolio.
    Any way, you are great photographer.

    You have really great pictures here in
    your gallery. Some I am a little bit
    surprised. :-)) Bikini contest in the US ?
    In Europe it is "normal" but what I know from
    the US. Or I am wrong.

    I will look to your pictures also in the future.

    Greetings Chip. I appreciate and understand your profile comments - you are making great strides in your photos. I really see the improvement over time, especially in the studio work (which I find soooo much harder than outdoors work). Enjoyed the trip through your portfolio; keep up the good work!
