For all the good that social media has brought to our tables, there is no question that it has also served us seven days in the sun bowls of potato salad as well. Scroll through your network of choice on any day and you'll find a stew of anger, hate and outrage. This morning I tweeted: As...
Every photographer knows the feeling. The slice of a moment when the light is perfect. Shadows dance on your subject as if you painted them on yourself. You point, press the button and hear the familiar sound of your shutter. You don't even need to look. You know you got it. THE shot is not always the best...
As a photographer, I love to be out shooting with my cameras. When on assignment, the stress factor always goes up a bit. Will I get the shot I need? Will the talent work with me? What if something goes wrong? All of those are natural and part of the photography business. It is one thing to...
The majority of the weekend was spent feet up in the sun room reading The Accidental Life: An Editor's Notes on Writing and Writers on my kindle. The stories and style hit home and fuel my desire to write more and fear less. There were pork chops on the grill and fresh corn beside them. Cold...
Turn on your television or look at a news site and you are guaranteed to see something that upsets you. It doesn't matter which side of the aisle you lean, team you root for or flag you salute. There is a never ending stream of bad news that will bother you. I've talked before about how...
The beach is the last place I personally go for family fun during the summer. Sure, the ocean is beautiful and there is always endless people watching at the beach, but sitting on a blanket, melting in the sun is not my idea of a fun day. So, when I partnered up again this summer with...
The other day I placed a new order from Serepick because I wanted a set of lock picks in my car. Upon arrival, I added them to my ITS Trauma Kit that I keep in my center console. I was discussing this with some in my family and received a familiar smile and head shake. I ignored it...
We all know the old story about the cobbler being so busy making shoes for customers, that his own children had none. When it comes to online strategies and marketing programs this is how it has always been around here for me. Always helping clients set up and execute things, while neglecting my own. Today that changes. Yesterday,...
July was a rough month all around me. It began with the tragic death of a nineteen year old and ended with the peaceful passing of a seventy eight year old. Two ends of the spectrum of life. Leaving behind heart broken friends and family. Reflection is part of my daily life. I think about things. Looking...
I arrived home and walking up to the front door I saw this on our stairs. A pipe cleaner Tinker Bell. She laid there on the cement. Shadows being cast around her. My assumption was that she was the latest artistic creation of my daughter. Probably done at Science Camp that day to entertain the kids. As I...

When asked what I do my current answer is, “I create, teach and motivate people to do more good in the world.”
Of course, that doesn’t cover all that I work on professionally and personally, so that is why I created this page.
Official bios and headshots can be found below.
Who is C.C. Chapman? I’m a…
Freelance writing or citizen reporting assignments excite me.
If I had to choose a style, I’d say my photos are a mix of documentary, travel and lifestyle photography. While I may not enjoy taking head shots, I love to shoot faces. I rarely go anywhere without a camera in my hand and I’ve been fortunate to see my photos on the pages of Rolling Stone and The Wall Street Journal.
I’m currently shooting with a Canon 80D, an iPhone 7+ and a Chroma 4k Drone.
With over twenty years of marketing, online media and community building experience I have the skills and experience to help your organization no matter the size. Previous clients have included The Coca-Cola Company, American Eagle Outfitters and HBO.
I focus on social good/impact marketing, content marketing and brand strategy. My favorite clients are NGOs, nonprofits or brands looking to make a difference in the world.
Feel free to double check my credentials on LinkedIn.
I’m happiest when on stage educating and inspiring an audience of any size, anywhere in the world.
I have spoken at everything from large international events, corporate retreats and at special gatherings of unique individuals. If you need someone who will inspire, educate and entertain your audience I’d love to chat.
I believe in using my skills, time and voice to champion causes that are important to me. I’m especially interested in anything military, dogs or children focused.
On top of all that I’m a proud life long New Englander who was born and raised in New Hampshire, but now resides outside of Boston.
I married my high school sweetheart, have two amazing kids and love being a dad.
I’ve been online since 1989, began blogging in 2002 and podcasting in 2004.
Previous endeavors I created include Accident Hash, Passion Hit TV, Digital Dads and The Advance Guard.
Tattoos, travel and the outdoors turn me on. There are fewer things more perfect than a well-done cocktail, a delicious meal or live art of any sort. I love my GORUCK, Field Notes and am a proud Misfit.
To understand me is to understand that I try to live a purposeful life every day that is full of adventure, love and making the world around me a better place for all.
C.C. Chapman describes himself as a New England raised storyteller, explorer, and humanitarian. Others have described him as a thought leader in the online marketing space, a grounded futurist and one the nicest guy on the Internet.

He is the co-author of the International bestseller Content Rules and is also the author of Amazing Things Will Happen. He travels the world speaking in front of audiences to do more in the world and how to understand content marketing better. C.C. has taught classes for Lynda.com, CreativeLive and now as an adjunct professor at Bentley University (where he also graduated from).

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more multi-faceted or enthusiastic creative/strategic partner in the marketing and content creation fields. This greatly hails from C.C.’s unstoppable combination of marketing experience and savvy (which a great many professionals claim to have), and incalculably valuable “on the ground” knowledge and insight as an influential content creator himself (which a great many professionals do not). The result is a best-of-both-worlds mashup of marketing expertise.
C.C. Chapman sports the pro cred to be a talker (working closely with such clients as American Eagle Outfitters, Coca-Cola, HBO and Warner Bros.), and the passion and gumption to be a doer (creating content for the emerging Online Dad market, marketing professionals, music fans and more). He’s helped create, manage and execute ambitious online and offline marketing campaigns for startups and multinationals — and has the invaluable good sense to know which outreach strategies work with audiences, and which ones fall flat.
He authoritatively speaks your language. He speaks your CMO’s language. Most important, he’s fluent in your market’s language. It’s a killer double-chocolate-and-peanut-butter combination. Contact C.C. to learn how he can help your organization achieve its business goals. There’s, even more, to know about C.C. Chapman if you want to read it — and you should. C.C.’s skills are an embarrassment of riches.
I’m involved with a lot of organizations and clients. I believe in being completely transparent and open about everything I’m working on. I’ll do my best to keep this updated and of course, will clearly disclose relationships in any post that require them.
I am open to being pitched and invited on press trips.
Companies do send me items in the hopes that I will review it or share with my community. If you send me something it does not guarantee a review.
With that in mind, my mailing address is:
