Having photographed residential and commercial architecture and interior design for the past 25 years, Louisiana native Chad Chenier has excelled in a dynamic and evolving profession. A graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California in 2006, he returned to his home state and immediately began his photography career as Chief Photographer for Louisiana Homes and Gardens Magazine and Our Louisiana for 7 years along with commercial freelance division in 2010.
With a name like Chenier, which is derived from the French word for “oak”, the Vacherie native’s roots run deep into the Acadiana heartland, where oak grows in abundance on chenier ridges deep in the marsh. Inspired by the lush landscapes and unique lighting that has served as a backdrop for hundreds of distinguished Southern homes and commercial projects. Chenier creates images that convey the perfect interplay of architecture and design.
