MEET OUR COVER PHOTOGRAPHER,

 

CHRIS MANDERS

 

 



The Roof of Africa - Mt Kilimanjaro Summit Glacier Overlooking Mt Meru

by Chris Manders

 

Chris Manders was born and lives in Australia.  He has traveled extensively throughout Europe and Africa.

 

Chris said, “I developed an interest in photography after purchasing my first digital camera in about 2004, just before embarking on a 7 month trip backpacking through Turkey and Eastern Europe.  It was only a compact camera, but I enjoyed the ability to see results immediately.  I purchased my first digital SLR camera about 1 year later as I wanted to gain more control over the photos that I took.  Living close to the Swiss Alps allowed me plenty of practice and opportunities for landscape photography.  I enjoy taking landscape images, and also trying to capture people as they are, going about their normal activities – Africa provided many unique opportunities for that.  I am an amateur photographer and take photos for my own satisfaction, but it gives me great pleasure when others appreciate my work.  You may view more of my photos at URL:  http://ccmanders.redbubble.com
