About Chad

 About Chad Dutson....

Wilderness Photographer & Wanderer. Landscapes, Wildlife, & Portraiture. Based in Alaska & Utah. Nikon & Sony. BLM-approved guide to Coyote Buttes, White Pocket, & Grand Staircase-Escalante. Proud member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA), North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA), & Nature First.

Chad deeply admires nature, and strives to capture the finest scenes possible. He spent all but three years of his life living in the West, providing him incredible opportunities to enhance his self-taught craft.

Chad has an insatiable desire to wander the wild, seeking solitude and serenity away from the bustle of city life. His deep passion for photography pushes him to extreme levels to capture "the shot." He has experienced hypothermia, been stung by a scorpion, nearly stepped on a rattlesnake, and faced sleet and rain through a close-proximity lightning storm. After each excursion he shares his experience with others, yearning they may fall in love with nature as he has.

"Some say they lose themselves in one thing or another -- I find myself through photography -- losing only the sense of time. I frequently shoot from sunset to sunrise." -- Chad Dutson
