Hey there! I’m Chad! Welcome to Beach Breeze Studios! Beach Breeze Studios is my attempt at sharing my love for photography and art with the Hampton Roads area! I have worked in photography for more than 15 years starting my first photography business in 2001 doing everything from portraits to weddings and everything in between. I quickly found that weddings were taking up too much of my time and were causing me to dislike my photography more and more each month. In 2013 it was time for a change. I closed down my first photography business and started getting back to working for myself and on projects that I enjoyed working on.
In 2015 I decided that it was time to re-enter the business side of photography and share it with the Hampton Roads area, concentrating more on the parts of the business I enjoyed the most and not doing those things that made it too much of a chore, even though most of the time those things were the ones that brought in the most money. Beach Breeze Studios was born, and completely out to do the fun projects and commissions that I wanted to work on and nothing more!
Opening the studio has allowed me space to work on various projects and try out new things with photography that I wouldn’t have been able to do before. I enjoy trying new techniques and new ways of working with digital files and art. I have recently started working with drone video, just trying out the technology! I also enjoy working in 3D and editing video for effects and learning new techniques with recording and editing!
I also love teaching people about photography and photo editing. I love working in groups as well as one on one. The studio allows for this as well, and of course Virginia Beach has many places to go and teach while capturing a lot of different subjects.
I enjoy chatting about photography and business as well as art in general, so if you would like to chat sometime, please feel free to e-mail me and let me know what’s on your mind! I look forward to meeting a ton of new people and learning everything I can from different points of view!
