About Bernard Chen
Bernard Chen is an award-winning landscape photographer who has found his passion with a camera in his hands. He has a heart of an artist and is an aspiring nature photographer based out of Northern Virginia. Unbeknownst to Bernard, his introduction to photography began in 2001 while working with Photoshop at the National Cancer Institute. For the past seventeen years, his work has been published in scientific journals while working at world-renowned cancer genetics laboratory in Bethesda, Maryland. His expertise in Photoshop and his love for nature finally coalesce when he bought his first camera in 2009 and rapidly advanced his skills thanks to a burning desire to succeed. But it was his obsessive behavior of scratching out every minute of light in the field that created a talented photographer whose work has been sought out by the likes of the National Library of Congress, National Geographic, West Virginia Land and Trust, Mattel, Toyster Brinquedos, Solitudes.com, and the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign.
Bernard has successfully instructed his own workshops from West Virginia to Maine, South Carolina to Montana, and thoroughly enjoys passing his knowledge to fellow photographers!
