All my work is copyrighted by “FCEtier”, “Chip Etier”, or “Royal Flamingo Works, LLC”

FCEtier, a Louisiana native, spent most of his adult life in Baton Rouge. He eventually split his time between Baton Rouge and Gulfport, Mississippi. Hurricane Katrina sent him in search of a safer harbor, which he found in Western North Carolina. Etier has been involved with photography for many years. His eye for the unusual found within the usual makes his subjects unique. He doesn’t go looking for the bizarre, but seems to find it in everyday settings.

He began freelance writing several years ago, with a focus on music and book reviews and essays. His writing influences range from Dr. Seuss and Ernest Hemingway to William Safire, Ferrol Sams, Mark Twain, Miriam Goldberg, Ian Fleming, Michael Crichton, Carl Hiaasen, James A. Michener, Caleb Pirtle and John Grisham.

He is the author of “The Tourist Killer” and “The Presidents Club.” FCEtier is a prolific blogger and photographer. Both his photography and his blogs can be found at VentureGalleries.com. His third novel, “A Year Without Killing,” is in serial format and will be available Spring 2015 as both e-book and paperback.

He lives with his wife, two cats, and four dogs in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Artist’s Statement:
“I’ve got a head full of ideas that are driving me insane.” Bob Dylan said it and I’ve been living it. One of my ideas is the possibility that my work will be recognized.
I have devoted my time behind the lens to exposing the extraordinary in the ordinary, whether it is found in the lines of an old face or a workbench covered with scraps.
Although I’m inclined to express myself in black and white, a large segment of my work is in color.

Answers to three common questions:
1) Canon not Nikon
2) Digital not film
3) Paintshop Pro not Photo Shop
