|On Tuesday, November 19th 2019, our lunch speaker will be Chad Copeland, an adventure and natural history photographer – a contributor to National Geographic, Outside Magazine, Men’s Journal and numerous other periodicals and has covered stories from the air, land and underwater around the world.
Chad will discuss his background with National Geographic, the BBC and more and talk about how being a global visual storyteller led him to Bend, OR. The primary topic will cover his new TV series “Adventure Calls” and why it was created (i.e. To bring local businesses together in an effort to show what Central Oregon has to offer to both locals and tourists.). The presentation will illustrate how sponsors have collaborated and how the rising tide is floating more boats through the opportunity. The series is being presented by Visit Central Oregon and is being supported throughout the region. At the end, Copeland will address questions and offer like opportunities to be a part of the series.
In 2015 he photographed “People of Action” for Microsoft’s Windows 10 desktops, tablets and mobile devices influencing the brand’s image. After shooting for more than two decades he developed a variety of Unmanned Aircraft Systems so that he could fly a variety of cameras into remote locations. Today he is a leader in the drone community and continues to push the limits of aerial applications. His expertise, leadership and skills as a pilot, decade of military service, commercial air traffic controller experience and lifelong outdoor adventure spirit combine to provide deliverable media from air, land and sea. Chad prepares for all expeditions with rigorous training in anticipation of all challenges. These strengths and strategies have earned him international recognition. In 2015, he studied the art of 360 virtual imaging and is now one of the leading 360VR content deliverers around the world having produced feature content for the 2016 NBC Olympics, Sony and a plethora of global clients.
