“Chad Michael Ward is a master of the storytelling craft. His imagery, both still and moving, reaches deep into the darkest corners of the mind, combining the macabre and the sensuous… Revealing humanity’s secret daydream atrocities. CMW taps into our most excitable of emotions with a blend of fear and human sexuality. Like an erotic car accident we can not look away from. ”
Dave Navarro, Musician
Jane’s Addiction

“I’ve worked with Chad Michael Ward twice. Met through instagram and is now on my list of favorite photographers. Visually his creations are a dream. His imagery takes you to another realm, as if you are traveling to unseen dimensions. Chad Michael was both professional and courteous, while being funny and a pleasure to work with.”

“I have always admired Chad’s work, ever since I came across his art about a decade ago. I was told by several of my friends that our styles would work well together. After years of pining to shoot with him, I was finally able to and the outcome was far beyond my imagination’s reach. Chad is an incredible conceptual artist who pushes the boundaries of dark photography and fine art.  Working with him was a breeze! He made me feel extremely comfortable and welcomed. I gel well with people that are able to roll with the punches and can create an atmosphere on the fly. I can’t wait to keep creating art together in the future.”
