Chad Pennington is the founder of Sobitart Photography located in Brooklyn, NY.
“Like most, I started out wanting to make something interesting, something that I could be proud of and something that the world could take notice of. Life finally has meaning to me, with 2 children and a beautiful wife I now know what I want out of it and that is to make them proud of me and for them to never forget who I was, what I did and taught them and for them to let their children know that I was here.”

Wedding and commercial photography
Chad says: “Your personality is hard to duplicate or replicate.”
HOW SOBITART PHOTOGRAPHY GOT STARTED
“From the first moment I picked up a camera it felt right, and, in combining learning, study and a background in the graphic arts I have developed a style that is uniquely mine and is based around the most important thing in the world; the celebration of true love.”
His late mother.
Chad explained that his mother always said, “God first and do the right thing. If you do those two, you can never go wrong.”
“Whether you are doing work for ten dollars or ten thousand dollars, do the same work.” – Chad’s Mom
His favorite pastime is spending time with his family and taking photos.
Chad says: “I always keep a camera with me. It’s my dress rehearsal before the big show.”
IF HIS LIFE WERE A MOVIE
