My name is Doc Hafferty and for over 30 years I have had a camera in my hands, from my first Canon A1 35mm to my current Canon DSLR's. I majored in graphic arts/photography in high school and college. Since then I have managed to involve my photography skills at every turn in my career path and finally by a stroke of luck I was able to launch Black Chair Photography as a full time artistic endeavor in 2006. In the years since, I have been involved and exposed to various mediums and artists, learning to further improve my technique. Including, but not limited to a clothing line of artistic shirts inspired from my poems and artwork which will be launched March 1st, 2014.

I have established skills in event photography, portraits, head shots, as well as commercial product photography, and have been published in national and local publications. My clients vary and are an eclectic group, everything from motorcycle rallies to municipal police golf tournaments, music festivals to wedding photography, baby cake smashes to boudoir photography. So don't be shy about your photographic needs, I am discrete & professional and will ensure that you will receive an amazing photography experience. I provide striking, daring, and unique photography, striving to provide superior service at an affordable cost.
