Why I Chose To Be Part Of The Women’s March

Men and women are different. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be treated equally. Around the globe this weekend, on all seven continents, millions of humans marched. Each who chose to show up did so for their own reasons. My reasons were simple. As a father, I marched to show my daughter that I support her. I wanted...

My 2016 in Photos

Out of all the things I create, I enjoy pulling together my year in photos the best. Scrolling through all of the photos I take and share brings back memories of the little things I forgot. The trips that blend together. The faces, places and meals shared. These roundups are not of my "best" photos, but...

Rough Streets of Neverland

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...

NYC Creative Microadventure

Alastair Humphreys introduced me to the term Microadventures in his latest book. The concept is that people feel they need to go on a three month expedition to a far off land to have an adventure, when in fact a single overnight in the wild of your backyard can be just as stimulating. This is a concept...

2015 in Photos

The end of the year is always a powerful time for me to look back at the last twelve months and ponder where I've been and what I've seen. Being a photographer means that I take photographs every single day and over the course of a year that means thousands of photos. Thank you again to...

A Walk Around San Francisco With My Camera

Photograph by David B. Thomas This past weekend found me in San Francisco working on a project for TripIt, but had lots of free time before the video shoot happened. My buddy David volunteered to meet me at the airport and go from there. After checking in to my room at the Hotel G, we grabbed some steaks...

A Weekend in Wine Country Speaking at WTFconf

When a friend asks for help, I do everything in my power to assist them. So, when David Baeza asked me to be part of a new conference he was organizing I wanted to make it work. When I saw that he had asked several of our closest friends for the same favor and they...

Celebrating My Dad’s 60th Birthday in True Chapman Style

Family is the most important thing in my world. I'll take quality time with those I love over almost anything else in the world and this past weekend certainly qualified as quality time. My dad turned 60 and we made plans to spend it together as a family. My youngest sister drove up from Maryland with her...

2014 in Photographs

Colby Brown inspired me. He inspired me to share some of my favorite photographs I took in 2014. They were taken with a variety of cameras and phones with each being special to me. It was fun to scroll through all my photos and realize the places I've traveled, the people I've met and the memories...

One Night Escape to Vermont

Echo Valley is a quiet spot in Vermont that our family likes to escape to. We don't get to go there as often as we'd like, so even a single overnight is special to us. The car was packed, the dogs were ready to go and at the other end of our drive we'd find...

Sailboat Lunch in the Ocean

Captain Tibi cut the engine and we slowly coasted directly for the island in front of us. Laura joked that it looked like another boat had crashed into the limestone on the beach and she hoped we wouldn't share their fate. Like a graceful dancer, the seventy seven foot boat softly slid into the sand without...

Something Amazing Is About to Happen?

A friend reaches out saying they need to catch up. They are looking for guidance and inspiration. You fear that you might not have any to give with the current situation of life, but because you are always there for a friend, you set a date and jump in the car. Ninety minutes to Portsmouth, New...

Lunch Break in the Woods

Kid Rock encourages me to slow my roll as the car cruises through the curves of Rt. 135. There might be a chill in the air, but the windows are down and Roxie is enjoying the wind on her face from the back seat. When you find yourself without work, a new camera and a beautiful day...

My First Boston Marathon

Going to college and now living in the Boston area, you'd assume that I've been to my share of Boston Marathons. I live two and a half miles from the starting line and have seen the finish line numerous times before the actual running. Yet, I had never watched in person. After the tragic events of...

Snowshoeing at West Hill Dam

The text message from my wife simply read "Do you want to go snowshoeing tomorrow with Ted and Eric?" My answer was "Hell yes!" So, Saturday morning I grabbed my Lumia 1020, we strapped on my snowshoes and hit the trail at the West Hill Dam in Uxbridge, MA. Yesterday, I put together a photo essay using the...

A Warm Walk In The Woods

This time of year I always get the itch to get outdoors. It was unseasonably warm this past weekend and I looked down at my hiking boots and they were crying out to get some dirt and mud on them. There was too much snow in the woods, but I knew Hopkinton State Park would have...

Faces of Ghana – My First Photo Essay Using Storehouse

As a storyteller, I'm always looking at new ways to share the stories I want to tell. From the moment I first installed the Storehouse app on my iPad I wanted to use it. The mixed media ability and the beautiful user interface found me looking through new photo essays every morning and wondering when I...

Istanbul in Black and White

Going through my photos from a recent trip to Istanbul, I noticed how different the country looks in black and white. It is a city of every color of the rainbow and yet in black and white it has a totally new kind of beauty. All photos taken with the Samsung Galaxy NX camera that I am...

Brookmill Farm

Visiting the Boston Marathon Memorial

Yesterday, I had to go into the city to speak at MUSE 2013, so I hit the road early with the plan to walk over and visit the Boston Marathon Memorial. Laura and I had been at the finish line two days before the Marathon, but I had yet to see the memorial and felt it...

Vall de Núria Through My Lens

Vall de Núria is one of the most peaceful spots I've ever had the chance to step foot in. High in the Pyrenees of Catalonia, Spain, it is only accessible via a train or by hiking in on foot. It is place of beauty, religion, pilgrims and skiers. If you ever have a chance to visit it, you truly...

Sketch of C.C. Chapman by Hey Instigator!There are many aspects OF who I am and what I do. Putting together THIS PAGE is one of my least favorite things to write because talking about myself is not my idea of a fun time.

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…


I’m constantly writing and always working on my next book. You may have read some of my published works including Amazing Things Will HappenContent Rules or 101 Steps to Making Video Like a Pro.

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.

My photos can be found on Instagram and Flickr.

Marketing Consultant

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.

Keynote Speaker

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.

Advocate & Volunteer

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.

I’m currently the President of the Board at Wediko, a member of the ONE Girls & Women Advisory Board, serve on the board of The Hockey Foundation and recently joined the No Kid Hungry Social Council.


Helping others learn and inspiring them to achieve their goals is the most fulfilling thing I do. As a Visting Instructor of Business and Management at Wheaton College and as an Adjunct Professor of Marketing and Communications at Bentley University I get to do this with the next generation. I’ve also developed and taught courses for LinkedIn, CreativeLive, and Treehouse.


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.

Fun Bio

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:

9 C Medway Road #117
Milford, MA

Current relationships include:

  • Verizon FiOS provides me with service in exchange for a monthly post on technology of my choosing
