Chad Pickard grew up in Leeds in the north of England. It was here his passion for visual arts was sparked after he was gifted his first camera from his Grandparents. Enthused by the imagery he could create, Pickard later studied Photography at Leeds Art College, giving him the formal training and creative freedom to express himself. Before long Pickard relocated to London to pursue his career as a Photographer and Director.
Since basing himself in London, Chad has worked extensively both locally and internationally for commercial & editorial clients.
Travel is an important element in his work, drawing on culture and the environment for inspiration. His work is both narrative and character based and demonstrates a sense of drama and personality. Chad’s care free and artistic nature is represented throughout his style of work.
