Moments in Travels

In 1997 I left my hometown of Columbus, OH on a journey to find my place in the world. I came to West Virginia to become a raft guide. I fell in love with the beauty of the majestic New River Gorge instantly. After traveling around for a few years I returned to this area of West Virginia because it has the best, most consistent whitewater kayaking in the world.

Nowadays, I live in Fayetteville, WV. It's a small town of about 2700 people, located about 1/2 mile from the left side of the bridge in the picture. From my house I can walk to that side of the bridge in about 25 minutes.

This picture was taken from a place called Long Point. It's really 8 images of varying shutter speeds, composited in Lightroom, Photomatix Pro and Photoshop.




In 2009 I won a trip to Brazil in the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right. Yes, that's really true. I was so excited I was dancing on stage with Drew Carey and breakdancing and doing all kinds of stuff. It's a pretty funny video if you want to check it out here on YouTube: Chad Foreman Wins The Price is Right

This photo was taken from Sugarloaf Mountain. In the distance is the famous "Christ The Redeemer" statue.
