Chip, the artist


Fine Art Photos available to purchase for the collector to add to their home, office, or business. 


Richard M Thomas II, or Chip as his friends call him, is a native Coloradoan, who is a college administrator by weekday and a nature photographer by weekend. He has lived most of his life in multiple parts of the state. Chip was born on the eastern plains of Colorado, grew up in the Denver area,  has lived in Northern Colorado, over on the western slope of Colorado, in the central mountains, and has traveled all over “Colorful Colorado” to gather all of these images.


Chip’s passion for photography started when he got his very first “Brownie” camera, which he still has to this day. He grew up on film, but adapted to the digital age very quickly. While Chip has lived in different parts of the country, the mountains of Colorado always call him home. 


These new digital camera systems, editing equipment, and the mountains have allowed him to grow his hobby into a passion, which hopefully you will all grow to love as much as he does.


Chip's growth in photography has covered the spectrum.  He has done some portrait work, home and car photo work, artistic, and landscape photography.  Through all of this, Chip has found his love for his native state through his travels around Colorado.  He has always had the desire to share this with his friends and family.  But what is driving his passion is that Colorado is becoming more and more crowded.  The trails are filled with people and there are lines of cars getting into the state and national parks of Colorado.  Through his photography, he is trying to show you Colorado without people, just the mountains, the plains, and the unique landscape of the western slope.  


The gallery will constantly change on here, so if you don’t see something that was on here before, please email him on the contact page. It is our hope that you find something on here that you would like to add to your home, office, or business.
