Photography by Chad Greene - ChadCRG Images


Original creative lighting, business, sports, commercial and portrait photography workshops hosted by award winning photographer Chad Greene. Designed to be hands on, easy to understand and make an immediate improvement in your photography.

Illuminating Workshops

One on One personal learning. Over eight weeks I will work with you to improve your photography in all aspects. You will receive an in depth portfolio review, tips on business and improvements to your lighting. I will have you assist me during a photo shoot to see how I work, interact with clients and more.

One on one training is limited to one person at a time. Former one on one personal learning photographers and interns have gone on to have great success on their own after getting the jump start from the outside they needed. Please contact me for more information and pricing.

About me:

I'm an award-winning commercial photographer and educator with more than 20 years experience, specializing in portraiture, marketing, higher education and editorial photography. With a background in photojournalism, I am passionate about visual storytelling and helping other photographers succeed.

Having taught college photography classes for several years in Tennessee I have missed teaching and want to get back into sharing information that helps other photographers improve immediately!


“I had Chad Greene as a photojournalism instructor at Pellissippi State Community College (PSCC) serval years ago. Chad’s knowledge and experience in photography intrigued me. He challenged what I knew and motivated me to become greater, and still does. While studying photography at PSCC I took on an internship with Chad. I began assisting him on an assortment of different photo jobs, both locally and nationally. I learned, in my opinion, the most important part of being a professional photographer, business. Chad showed me ways to communicate with clients, ways that I still use today in my own journey as an independent photographer. I can honestly say, without a shadow of a doubt, that my photography career would not exist if it were not for Chad’s willingness to invest into my life. So thank you for that! But for real, I have never meet a more self-motivated person than Chad. He does great work and his clients love him!”

“Chad Greene is by far the best photography teacher I have ever had. He knew how to strike the perfect balance between being supportive and encouraging but he also pushed me out of my comfort zone to produce better artwork than even I knew I was capable of. He is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about photography, and that’s why his classes are so informative and useful. I whole heartedly credit where my photography business is now, to his class and guidance was I was just figuring things out! You can’t go wrong with a Chad Greene class, and I cannot recommend enough!”
