Keeping What's Important In Focus
Chad McPeters

Creativity, Experience and Knowledge

My name is Chad McPeters and I am a photographer, marine biologist and creative designer. Both of my parents were photographers and they taught me that there is beauty in every part in this world. I strive to create visual imagery that represents the subject in the most beautiful way possible. My photographs blend emotion and energy to make impressions that are as brilliant 10 years from now as they are today.

The best part of me is that I love my work. I love contributing to people's hopes and dreams with my creativity. I love the cold chills I get when one my creations connects a client with their vision. My hope and dream is that with your help, I can create something for you better than either of us could have imagined.

What other people have to say


Happy family posing for a picture "Chad's ability behind the lens is sharply honed. Chad was well-organized, professional, and a lot of fun to work with.  His creative use of a location was great as he captured unique shots in seemingly ordinary places. Our son, who can be difficult to photograph at times, really cooperated and had fun with him. He is very personable and obviously took great pride in his photographs. We were very impressed when we received our images. Chad has an eye for great composition and is undoubtedly an artist. We'd love to have him photograph us again when we're in the area."
