About Chad Powell
There are no upcoming events
I’m a 28-year-old photographer living and working on the stunning Isle of Wight, where we’re all very proud of our ‘sunniest place in Britain’ title. Having said that, a lot of my images are taken when the sun is nowhere to be seen! With a passion for capturing the night sky, I’m lucky enough to live where the small towns and southern, coastal location result in some of England’s darkest skies. Low light pollution levels are what make my images possible.
It would be easy to assume the shots are highly manipulated and although they may seem surreal, most of what I shoot is actually visible to the naked eye. It’s the addition of long exposures and a light sensitive camera that bring out the colours and detail. I’m not totally nocturnal though! As you can see from my images, I have a wealth of beautiful scenery to choose from too.
My work is sold in many different mediums including open and closed edition prints using archival papers. The artistic nature of my work and vibrant colours make them an ideal focal point in any room or business place.
I have been lucky enough to be featured in several publications and on many popular websites including Canon, NBC, Yahoo, Mail Online, Digital SLR Magazine, The Guardian and Digital Camera Magazine to name a few.
