Chad Mooney is a commercial, event, and fine art photographer based in northern New Jersey. Specializing in landscape photography and environmental portraiture, his preference of utilizing natural light in his work serves as a means to join the elements of nature with those of the studio.
Chad graduated summa cum laude from Montclair State University in Upper Montclair, New Jersey, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in photography. He has studied under photographers Klaus A. Schnitzer and Stacy R. Morrison.
Currently, Chad operates as Owner and Lead Photographer of Chad Mooney Photography. Chad also assists fine art photographer Dr. Donna Bassin, Ph.D., of ShrinkWrap Studio in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, and has collaborated with her on multiple projects in the tri-state area since 2015.
When not at work, Chad can be found on a hiking trail, alongside a lake, traveling to new and (sometimes) distant places, or just visiting a local craft beer brewery among friends.
