Wayne Marshall Chase

    I belong to the 12th generation of the Chase family to live in New England. We are direct descendents of Captain Aquila Chase who came to America in the early 1600's. He settled in what is now Newburyport Massachusetts which is my home town and where my sons Nate and Matt Chase were born. Needless to say New England is in my blood and I love sharing my images of this beautiful part of America.
    Some of my earliest memories are of my father Paul Chase processing photos in our basement dark room. I studied photography as a teenager and had my own darkroom once I was out on my own. Unfortunately most of my early photos were destroyed in a Newburyport house fire.
    These days everything is digital and a computer is the modern darkroom. Most of my current images are High Dynamic Range. HDR allows preservation of details that may be lost due to limiting contrast ratios.
    If you would like a particular location photographed, please contact me. In many cases I will do the shoot for free. Just click the Contact Link on this page. Thanks for visiting... Wayne Marshall Chase
