Chad Burdette aka CH@Dbee on the forums is an up and coming automotive photographer that has really been stepping up his game lately! Chad’s work with his automotive rig, off camera lighting, and his editing has been consistently improving, and to top it off so have the cars he has been shooting.
Chad stated on his about page of his website
“I love capturing a moment or beautiful object forever with the power of photography but tweaking it my own way.”
I believe all photographers strive to create their own personal style, something that people recognize without seeing a signature on a photo, or “Photo By: xxxx” in the text. Well I chose to feature Chad’s work today because I think in a day and age where everyone and their mom has a DSLR, he stands out with his own unique style!
See how this image of the flat black Evo is the result of 5 different shots being stitched together… Check it out on Chad’s Blog!
R35 GTR on new Volk TE37 G2′s
csmith’s 8thgen Civic Si on 18×9 +28 CCW Classic’s w/ Neo Chro hardware. Waiting on some updated pics of this car w/ it’s new ’09 front bumper and no toe hooks!
Another R35 GTR this one on Gloss Black Volk RE30′s… lovin’ this shot and the murdered out look! It’s not easy shooting a black car like this on black wheels, usually the wheels are lost in the shadows but Chad did a great job!
A rig shot of the red R35 above…
And I belive this is Ryan from Forged’ Graphite Grey Evo MR.
I hope you enjoyed Chad’s work, I’m confident there will be MUCH more to come. Be sure to check out more of his work on his site where you can find Wallpapers of some of the shots I posted above!
