Chad VanWalsum, Grand Rapids Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement 'm your everyday, average visual pimp with a camera; hello, my name is Chad.
My obsession with all things visual started in highschool with a photography class and an aol account. Soon I was learning basic html with "Chad's Ranma Page of Cool Stuff" along with the fine art of developing photos in the school darkroom.
Skip 5 years into the future where I was attending kendall college of art and design, getting married, buying a house, and holding down 3 jobs to pay for everything, all while trying to find time to sneak out with my nikon n65 to take photos. Skip another 5 years into the future and here I am now. I'm a designer at a good size web design/development firm with international clients, have 2 kids, Ian and Nikolas, still paying off the house and the education, all while still trying to find time to sneak out with my nikon d70.
