About Me My adventure with landscape photography began many years ago during the mountain climbing and hiking in Poland. I decided to show the beauty of the world around me by photographs, which after a few years turned into my profession and way of life. For 8 years I have worked in the St. Paul Edition as a photographer and photo editor. I have had many trips abroad performing materials in a variety of conditions – on the Alpine summits and wild shores of the Mediterranean islands. Each photographic expedition is a wonderful adventure and full of amazing experiences struggle – the struggle for the image of the painting quiet light of the world, which does not really exist, because after a while it is only a memory, but thanks to the subtleties of photos I can share it with audiences around the world.

He has photographed in over 50 diﬀerent countries to date and has received a number of internatonal photography awards. He is an ambassador for camera brand Nikon and computng giant HP. He also holds endorsement relatonships with Lexar, Lowepro and AquaTech.
Actually to call him a travel photographer is something of a misnomer, as Chris works across travel related genres such as lifestyle, adventure, wildlife and natural history with equal aplomb. The fact that all of these necessitate travel – because his clients and shoot locatons are spread all over the globe – is perhaps the strongest link. In this feature, we’ve chosen to focus on his lifestyle and adventure imagery.

Desde hace tres años, se celebra un certamen que premia, a partes iguales, la complicada proeza de escalar altas montañas, así como hacerlo armado no solo de los complementos necesarios y la energía a tope de carga, sino también en compañía de nuestra inseparable cámara de fotos. Y es que en este tipo de imágenes no solo hay que saber plasmar el momento justo –que ya es arduo complicado-, sino también hacerlo en contra de duras inclemencias meteorológicas, difíciles y largas caminatas, y todo tipo de circunstancias que pueden sorprendernos kilómetros arriba. En esta ocasión, han sido 300 los valientes participantes procedentes de 56 países, los que han presentado más 800 imágenes a concurso. Con estas cifras de participación, el concurso organizado por el Club Vasco de Camping Elkartea se consolida como concurso internacional y de calidad, lo que también se justifica por las fantásticas imágenes presentadas.

Dawn at Entamanu and the world seemed newborn. Mists unfurled from the depths of Ngorongoro Crater. Three giraffes materialised like ghosts from behind acacias. Two golden jackals trotted past, and somewhere a hyena barked as the day, and the world, shed their darkness.
