Chris Marquardt is a photographer and an educator based in Hannover, Germany. He considers himself to be a craftsman rather than an artist and his goal is to empower people to go through the world with open eyes and a critical mind. His photo tours take the curious to the edge of the world and as an author he takes deep dives to help his readers understand how photography works on various levels. As a podcaster Chris teaches photography to a global audience of photography enthusiasts and as a consultant, he helps businesses understand and further and their visual presence in a world that is becoming more and more saturated with photography.
