Days Afield Photography was born in 2005 to provide the outdoor industry with the finest in sporting lifestyle imagery. Chip lives in western North Carolina with his wife Kelly, labs Zach and Charlie and English cocker Bodie. You can usually find him in the fall and winter tangled up in some thicket shooting up close and personal shots of bird dogs; or laying in the mud getting that shot of a retriever crawling through the flooded timber or swamp to bring back a fat greenhead. When spring finally arrives he will be up to his chest in a river somewhere shooting your backcast while you are casting to rising rainbows and browns. His travels take him from Florida to Alaska; from the Gulfcoast salt marshes up to the prairies of the Dakotas; and from the white sands of the islands to the mountains. Chip is doing what he loves capturing images of your Days Afield.
His images are regularly featured in some of the world’s finest outdoor publications. His work appears in Retriever Journal, Pointing Dog Journal, Just Labs, Covey Rise, Shooting Sportsman, Grays Sporting Journal, Sporting Classics, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, Quail Forever, Ruffed Grouse Society, Woodcock Limited, Gundog, Wildfowl, Wildlife in North Carolina, Trout Unlimited, American Angler and Click magazine. His work has appeared in calendars by Wildwood Press, Intermedia Outdoors, Pheasants, Forever, Quail Forever and Ruffed Grouse Society.
His work has also been used to illustrate books, such as “Sporting Dog and Retriever Training the Wildrose Way” by Mike Stewart, “The Complete Outdoors Encyclopedia” by Vin T.
