Hello, the name is Chase.

From the Flames by Chase Schiefer

Birder, Bass player, Photographer, Explorer
My passion for photography germinated from family vacations around the United States as a child. My family and I went on sensational adventures in search of birds and wildlife throughout New Jersey, Maine, southern Texas, extreme southeastern Arizona, the Everglades of Florida, and more. On all of our family vacations, my Mother photographed wildflowers creeping on abandoned farmsteads, the rocky coasts of Maine, and anything else that captured her eye. It was along these trips where I first experimented with photography by documenting observed bird species or the rich landscapes around us using an old Vivitar 35mm SLR (Single Lens Reflex) film camera.

Since the heady days of 35mm film, I now rely on my Nikon D40 Digital SLR to continue on with my family’s tradition of capturing the landscapes and wildlife of the places I visit. Additionally, I have broadened my subjects to include American folklife and historic structures, as well as battle re-enactments, weather phenomenon, and light painting.

In my leisure time, I enjoy birding, reading, music, and experiencing the country’s parks through camping and hiking.
"For my own part I am pleased enough with surfaces. In fact they alone seem to me of much importance. Such things for example as the grasp of a child's hand in your own, the flavor of an apple, the embrace of friend or lover, the silk of a girl's thigh, the sunlight on rock and leaves, the feel of music, the bark of a tree, the abrasion of granite and sand, the plunge of clear water into a pool, the face of the wind---what else is there? What else do we need." Edward Abbey

I have not tired of the wilderness; rather I enjoy its beauty and the vagrant life I lead, more keenly all the time. I prefer the saddle to the streetcar and star-sprinkled sky to a roof, the obscure and difficult trail, leading into the unknown, to any paved highway, and the deep peace of the wild to the discontent bred by cities.It is enough that I am surrounded with beauty. - Everett Ruess
