March 2011

As time marched on, changes have taken place again. After sending in my trusty Canon 40D for cleaning, it was determined that it had 125,860 photos on it. Time for a new shutter as well as being relegated to the backup position. The replacement was a new Canon 7D, definitely bigger and better!

I have also added  Facebook to Chaos family. Keeping everyone more informed on what is going on in the world and providing coupons for saving on all your favorite photos.




May 2009

I guess it is time to update things that have changed lately...

During the summer of 2008, Chaos Photo added a Canon 40D which relegated the 20D to a backup. This was quickly followed by an Epson R1900 printer for creating prints during events.

As the Hockey season got into full swing, a set of Paul C. Buff White Lightning flash units and soft boxes were purchased. Not only do the units work great for creating excellent lighting in the hockey photos (check out the 2009 SDAHA Varsity State Tourney photos), but I now have a studio for portraits.

In a bid to shorten the turnaround time when ordering prints, Zenfolio was brought on board for displaying photo galleries and allow prints to be ordered easily off the web. Just a few clicks and the prints are on their way directly to you in a very short time!

Chaos Photo can now be found on Twitter! Following ChaosClicker on Twitter keeps you up to date on what photos are next to get posted and where I am heading next.



Chaos the beginning.

     I am Chaos Photography creator Brad Letcher, a Civil Engineer by trade, but racing, hockey and photography are my passions.  It is strange to think that standing a few feet away from a speeding car or jumping motorcycle is relaxing, but it is to me.

     In 1993, while racing motocross, hare scrambles and short track motorcycles, I picked up a Canon T90 and began taking photos of his friends and fellow racers.  Chaos Photography was born a few years after as the cost of giving away photos to not only friends but also other competitors was getting too high.  I soon found myself sending photos and racing reports to the national newspaper Cycle News on a regular basis.

     In 2001, CP began taking shots of long-time sponsor, First Class Design's Mark McDonald, at the Dakota State Fair Speedway as he switched from a quad to a street stock car.  As summer changed over to winter, CP began taking photos of the Huron All Stars high school hockey team. The exciting new challenge was met a few years later with a new camera, a Canon Elan 7E.

     As 2006 began, CP has once again transformed as a Canon 20D digital camera was purchased.  The digital format has changed the way photos are viewed.  No longer must you wait for processing, as the photos can be viewed immediately or on this website.  CP has changed photo printing companies and continues to search for more photo options.  CP has teamed up with Brooker Designs,  On the Edge Graphics and First Class Design for a wide range of photo products.  CP copyrighted photos can be used at any of these businesses without additional fees.

Chaos Photo has gone through another change as this website has been redesigned. The simplicity for viewing photos and products has been combined with a fresh new look. Photos from 2006 and 2007 are still available for viewing and purchase.

    As Chaos Photography moves into the future, we want to thank you for being a part of it.
