With decades of experience as a professional photographer, Chip Forelli received a 2014 Lantern Awards of Texas Award of Excellence from the Business Marketing Association of America, Houston Chapter. That award was given to him for a compelling oil and gas industry photography campaign he created entitled Energy Independence = Freedom, designed to support American energy independence. Chip Forelli focuses his efforts on servicing the one business he believes is integral to the security and success of our nation, the energy industry. Distinctive photography is his trademark and he firmly believes that successful communication of any business's message depends upon powerful, reader stopping photography which will separate it from the clutter. Companies such as Valero, Chesapeake Energy, Weatherford, FMC Technologies, Freeport-McMoRan (formerly Plains Exploration & Production) and the American Federation of Petroleum Manufacturers have all hired him to provide oil and gas photography for their advertising and marketing communications as well as corporate display art. While providing assignment photography, licensing of existing oil and gas photography, video production and archival display prints for corporate environments, he considers himself fortunate to be involved in a profession that he's passionate about.
Chip Forelli lives on the edge of the Marcellus Shale in northeastern Pennsylvania with his wife, Gloria and three sons.
