About Chad Baker
As far back as I can remember, and before my first photography class at the age of 14, I have always had a camera in my hand. I have been infatuated with capturing the “moment” as I see it. I also love to capture things you see every day in such a way you will say, “What is that?” Then when I explain it you say, “Wow, I never would have seen it that way!!” That’s what drives my inspiration in my art is to capture everyday life in such a way that you would never think of. Thus with the intent of inspiring you to also see things differently and think outside the box.
I studied under master photographer, Scott Weston, for 3 years starting at the young age of 14. From there I studied under Roger Baker for a year at Clark College to further refine my techniques and editing style. With all of the professional training I have had over the years, I continuously push the envelope with new ideas and techniques with ongoing courses and workshops related to the photography industry.
I describe my photography as photo-journalistic. With 15 years in the photography business, my primary focus is in the corporate and real estate fields of photography. However, every time I get a chance to work with a family, high school senior or a local band, it makes for a great way to connect with local families and friends in the community.
