Chip does some interesting stuff. He does a lot of long exposures, utilizing ND filters heavily. These long exposures lend a dreamy quality to his work. Very nic.

I had the opportunity to meet him and see his show at the Whyte Museum in Banff Alberta last October - he's a very good printer, with a wonderful eye. Very strong compositions, and of mostly everyday scenes that I think most people, including myself, would pass by.
For the equipment buffs in the crowd, he uses Hasselblad (501cm I think, and the 905SWC) cameras, and a Linhof Master Technica.
