Hi, I’m Chapin and I'm a cinematographer.


As an accomplished fine artist in the fields of sculpture and painting before picking up a film camera, Chapin crafts visual language unique to each film through an artistic approach to cinematography, deep knowledge of the technology available, and trust for the collaborative spirit.

Trained by legendary documentary cameraman, Bob Richman, Chapin has worked on feature films, commercials, and TV under some of the best directors of non-fiction film; from RJ Cutler, Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky, to Academy Award winners like Nathaniel Kahn, and Davis Guggenheim.

 My favorite piece of advice I've been given:

 
You should be prepared to use the camera as a hammer or a weapon at any time.  It’s just a tool.
— David Darby, ASC

My parent's first date was climbing a fourteen-thousand-foot peak in Western Colorado. My mom had blisters almost from the beginning but refused to turn around. Over many years of her adventures, she took some absolutely incredible photographs, many while skiing and climbing remote summits around the world. She was my first mentor, my biggest fan, and often times my harshest critic. I'm an artist because of her.

Now, I don't climb mountains (I make images and surf) but I love what I do. I think you have to love filmmaking to even consider going through what we do to get the story in the can.  It's grueling and hard, but also the most fun I've ever had in my life. I'm addicted to the challenges. I'm driven by finding the right concoction of good people and innovative ideas to charge headlong up that big "mountain" and come out on top. Every day on-set is a little victory and we should celebrate. Lucky us!

So get in touch, let's set our sights high, and find a mountain to climb together. :)

Aloha,

C
