Great location. I can only imagine there's a story behind it. Overall composition is spot on, Dude! Structural elements carry the eye w...


The challenge to hold grace and poise, where even the slightest movement is perilous.

This is real barbed wire. The points have not been clipped or dulled. It will bleed you if you look at it wrong. It should go without saying, don't try this at home. 
Picked up the camera, dusted off my photography gear, and shot creatively for the first time in years. Had a wonderful experience with the talented and spirited Isabella Sophia, in a signature 14 hour shoot that wrapped at 2am. Some things never change. Forged some incredible images and lit the fires for more to come. Special thanks to Daniel Thompson for helping to reach for the impossible, and Isabella for re-igniting a lost passion.

To say that I'm back would be untrue. It's been a long time since I visited Deviant Art. What remains of the community I once knew remains to be seen.

My commitments to Wasteland Weekend and ongoing productions severely limit my time, but as opportunities arise, I will be shooting again.

Adam Chilson
United States
I am an eccentric, published author, artist, and photographer. While I do regularly take on commercial projects, my true motivation is inspired by an overactive imagination and boundless energy.

I love working with raw, enthusiastic talent, especially individuals with unique personalities and looks. The experience is just as important as the final image. I DO LITTLE, IF ANY POST-PRODUCTION OR PHOTOSHOP WORK--what you see is what you get. My own work is contantly evolving. Always looking for the next challenge.

Current Residence: BFE California
Favourite genre of music: 80\'s Metal
Operating System: Mac
Wallpaper of choice: Too much on the desktop to see a wallpaper
Personal Quote: Art should speak for itself
Gone, but not idle.

Near the end of 2011, I once again found myself at the creative crossroads. Making a living at something you enjoy is the surest way to suck the life from it. Barring the occasional favor to friends and clients, I put the camera away to collect dust. A lesson learned the hard way long ago. Sometimes it's better to walk away than grow to hate what you love.

Mind and muse shifted to the tactile. Melting metal, singed flesh, engine grease, bruised knuckles, and dust on the road. As the production designer for Wasteland Weekend, and one of the event's lead organizers, there have been no shortage of opportunities to put the creative process to a real challenge. Full scale post-apocalyptic sets capable of surviving the elements, functional installation art, and vehicles ready to roll on Doomsday.

Production is now in full swing for Wasteland 2013, along with a full agenda of projects, movies, video games, car shows, and theatrical performances. It just keeps getting bigger and better every year.

While much of my time is spoken for, expect to see more of me here on Deviant Art in the near future. Dusting off the camera for some new projects, and a return to some favorites, including a blazing series of new Sparks imagery. Just can't stay away for long.
