About
Biography/Education:
Born in Louisiana, FC Etier spent most of his adult life in Baton Rouge, eventually splitting his time between Baton Rouge and Gulfport, Mississippi. Hurricane Katrina sent him in search of a safer harbor, which he found in Western North Carolina. With an eye for the unusual found within the usual, Etier has been involved with photography for many years. A fan once remarked, “Give him an acre and he’ll find a million inspirations.” Hoping that there are others who like what he sees through his viewfinder and who will support his interests, Etier is seldom found without his camera. His influences range from Shutterbug and Black and White magazines to Salvador Dali, with many others along the way, including Scott Kelby, Dennis Hopper, Patti Smith, Miriam Goldberg, William Eggleston, and Ansel Adams. He studied art at Louisiana Tech University and independently learned the art of photography.



Artist’s Statement:
“I’ve got a head full of ideas that are driving me insane.” Bob Dylan said it and I’ve been living it. One of my ideas is the possibility that my work will be recognized.
I have devoted my time behind the lens to exposing the extraordinary in the ordinary, whether it is found in the lines of an old face or a workbench covered with scraps.
Although I’m inclined to express myself in black and white, a large segment of my work is in color.


Answers to three common questions:
1) Canon not Nikon
2) Digital not film
3) Paintshop Pro not Photo Shop

8.Daryl(non-registered)
You are a great photographer, I really love your pictures :)
7.Adam Ron(non-registered)
It is a pity that only 10 images in the folder Cades Cove - I really like that nostalgia in black and white :)

5.Wayne Rowe, author of Zen and the Magic of Photography (Rocky Nook, Inc.)(non-registered)
Whether in color or in black-and-white, the photographic images of “Chip” Etier truly “sing.” They represent the artistic expressions of an extraordinarily gifted and sensitive photographer who is able to “hear the light.” By linking vision and feeling, “Chip” becomes an inseparable part of the moment he is recording. In that instant of discovery and capture, photographer, camera, image, light, and moment become one and the same thing.
