Chad Buchanan is a Los Angeles based Photographer, Video Producer and Editor.
With a background as an International Fashion, Entertainment, Event Photographer and Videographer. As well a native Californian, with more than 20 years of professional experience in the industry.
“My desire to pursue a career in photography and video began as a teenager in the San Francisco Bay Area when I had the opportunity to take analogue photos at concerts like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Nirvana.
After attending college I moved to Los Angeles when I was 23 to seek out my dream career in Hollywood. I worked as a Model and Commercial Actor, and then as a Production Assistant in TV/Film.
My first break as a Photographer was working on a Hollywood TV Production shooting On-Set Still Photography. I moved to New York City in 1998 to pursue Fashion Photography and I found work shooting Look-Books for modeling agencies like Elite and IMG. Not long after I was approached by an assignment editor at Vogue to shoot fashion related events for their then new website Vogue.com. It was a great experience and opened the door to many opportunities.
My desire to travel and live abroad took me in 2006 to Berlin, Germany from where I was able to easily travel throughout Europe and Asia. Also, I have traveled frequently to Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Cannes and many other beautiful locations for a variety of Photo and Video Production assignments.
Over the past years, I have developed an extensive range of Photographic, Video and Post Production technical skills, including Video Editing and Color Grading.”
