We are excited to have a professional of Chip’s caliber. He has an impressive resume: He was classically trained in the visual arts and the traditions of creative photography at The Rhode Island School of Design where he studied with the American Master, Harry Callahan. He is director of the Atlanta based 'Advanced Photography Seminar', a highly selective mentoring program for advanced photographers.

He is currently curating "Edge to Edge", the first ever state-wide survey of creative photography by Georgia photographers for the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MocaGa) that opens Sept 2 and continues thru Dec 3.  In 2017, he will have a career retrospective at MocaGa. His prints are included in major collections including the Museum of Modern Art, The High Museum of Art, The Houston Museum of Fine Art, The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Sir Elton John Photography Collection.
